    Embedded: Changing The Police

    Yonkers, N.Y. is a city with a long and ugly history of bad policing. The Justice Department has demanded an overhaul of the department and has been monitoring it for more than a decade.

Five stars

Such a great way to catch up on the news. I’m in NZ - and listen first thing in the morning to hear about what’s happened while I was asleep.
