USA TODAY’s critically acclaimed investigative podcast about power in American cities.
Season 1, Chicago: A black neighborhood fights back when a mysterious man with mob ties builds an illegal dump across the street from an elementary school. Along the way they confront corrupt politicians, apathetic bureaucrats—and a secret undercover FBI investigation.
Season 2, Reno: A surprising proxy battle for the future of Reno pits a brash strip club kingpin against power brokers in city hall. The winner-takes-all fight could remake the city—and ruin lives in the process.
In a changing Reno, city boosters concoct a plan to force strip clubs out of downtown.
If They Want War, We'll Give 'Em War
A secret report on strip clubs is revealed, but it’s no smoking gun. As Midtown changes, residents of a weekly hotel make their fury known to a council that says they’re just pawns in Kamy's game.
Big-game hunters in town for a convention go to the Wild Orchid looking to let loose, but city police have other plans.
We go east of Reno, where wild horses roam and the tech business is booming.
Behind the Curtains
Everyone wants to know what’s happening in the strip club’s VIP rooms—including the courts.
A New Reno
As old Reno disappears around them, Kamy, Stephanie, and Velma all try to find their bearings.
Loved it all!
Listened to both seasons of this show as I was in nearby cities, very fun to connect with it like that!
Listened to both seasons. Audibly gasped when I heard it was cancelled. Was fully looking forward to her coverage and perspectives of another city!
Biggest Little City in the World
I’m so disappointed that this podcast was canceled. The way you covered Northern Nevada was insane! I didn’t realize how big of an underbelly my hometown had. Thanks for all of your hard work!! I know I’m late to the party, but I’m so glad I found you and binged it one day at work.
