    712: Nice White Parents

    Years ago, producer Chana Joffe-Walt started reporting on one school in New York. She thought the story was about segregation and inequality in public schools. But the more she looked into it, the more she realized she was witnessing something else. She was seeing the inordinate power of white parents at this school. This is the first episode of Chana’s new mini-series: Nice White Parents.

Eye-opening, intreating, funny, fantastic journalism and storytelling

Here in Europe we access the new podcasts on Monday mornings. It has sweetened every Monday for me since I have discovered This American Life, I recommend the podcast to everyone!

Wonderfully produced but completely biased

I used to love this podcast - then I heard the one on the factchecking of the refugee crisis in Germany and what happened on New Year's Eve in Cologne 2015. The BBC "reporter" completely misled the audience in "omitting" the fact that the local police chief's initial report issued to the newspapers said that the night passed off peacefully , that the only reason it ever became a story is that large numbers of women posted on twitter tales of their sexual assualt, Angela Merkel swore up and down that those who committed those assaults (largely North African migrants - also conveniently forgotten) would be held responsible and to date how many have actually been prosecuted and deported?? Not a single one. Shame on you calling yourselves "reporters"

The mother of all good radio storytelling

Still the first podcast that comes to mind if I want to recommend a perfect show with compelling and moving stories and the best host out there.
