This week, we uncover what makes for great investigative journalism...by talking to two investigative journalists, of course. Susanne Reber is the co-Creator and Executive Editor of Reveal, the investigative show from the Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR) and PRX. Laura Starecheski is a reporter and producer for CIR who brings us November's Reveal story on abuse in traumatic brain injury facilities--"neurorehab centers."
Before joining CIR, Reber started and led the investigative unit at NPR, and spent a good part of her career at the CBC--creating her own big break when the Berlin Wall came down. And Starecheski shares a few things she's learned as a reporter--about talking to yourself, negotiating and the value of listening.
