“Reveal is... a remarkably sharp radio program and podcast. Host Al Letson, part navigator, part passenger, leads listeners through topically themed episodes. CIR reporters have dropped illuminating stories on the American trapping boom, discrimination in the temporary jobs sector, and religious day care centers, among other topics.” — Columbia Journalism Review
