    Episode 4: The When

    Episode 4: The When

    In Episode 4 of "The List," we explore what might happen when the Catholic Diocese of Charlotte releases a list of clergy members credibly accused of sexual misconduct and abuse. The diocese says it plans to release names by the end of 2019. We hear from an advocate with personal experience who's there to listen to other survivors of abuse and from North Carolina's attorney general. And we hear how the crisis has shaped survivors' views on not just the Catholic Church but faith in general.

    Episode 3: The Why

    Episode 3: The Why

    In this episode of "The List," we learn about why survivors of abuse in the Catholic Church and proponents of accountability push for the release of lists of credibly accused clergy. We also hear some theories as to why certain people might push back against the release of such lists. And we hear from a local deacon about why he thinks the church should talk about the crisis openly. There's another why we learn about, too — why some people in power abuse children in the first place.

    Episode 2: The How

    In this episode of "The List," we learn more about the child sexual abuse crisis in the Catholic Church and why dioceses across the country have been releasing lists of credibly accused clergy.  We also learn more about the history of the Charlotte Diocese — which as of Dec. 1, 2019, still hadn't released a list despite plans to do so by the end of the year.  And we hear from a survivor of abuse at hands of a former priest who once served in Charlotte — and the attorney who represented him in a lawsuit against the diocese.
