Oscar season is upon us, and one of the best picture nominees is a film that hits pretty close to home for us at Reveal: “Spotlight.” In case you haven’t seen it yet, it’s a movie about The Boston Globe’s investigative team that exposed the Catholic Church sex abuse scandal.
In this hour of Reveal, we’re going to take you behind the scenes of that investigation, look at the legacy of the groundbreaking story and see how other journalists went on to expose more crimes by Catholic priests around the world.
First up, we tell you what happened after the “Spotlight” movie ended and how The Boston Globe continued to expose cover-ups in the Catholic Church.
In the second segment, Minnesota Public Radio exposes a priest abuse scandal in the Twin Cities, more than a decade after The Globe’s original investigation. Reporter Madeleine Baran spent two years looking into the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis and uncovered how the church had been making secret payments to known abusers while continuing to conceal clergy sexual abuse from the public.
And finally, GlobalPost reporter Will Carless takes us to Latin America on the trail of priests who fled the U.S. after being accused of sexually abusing children.
Note: This episode contains graphic content related to child sexual abuse.

A rip-roaring return to form after a month-and-a-half hiatus. This episode, I’m getting down to business and discussing Ben Stein’s finanical thriller "On The Brink" with returning guest Jeb Lund and first-timer Rocky Swift. We dissect the politics and amazingly weird writing of America’s favorite Boring Teacher From the Movies, and struggle to understand why anybody would write a ‘suspense’ novel about creeping inflation. Things even get a little educational. But then we talk about dicks.
NOTE: Jeb wanted to apologize for fucking up the OPEC Crisis and Postal Strike chronology during the Nixon Administration. It probably doesn’t matter, because Ben Stein has all this stuff happen at once, but you don’t need to write in with corrections. He knows he’s wrong, and he’s sorry.

Jessie Drops the Mic
“Everyone needs to shut up and listen.” -Jessie
Welcome to Crybabies with Sarah Thyre and Susan Orlean. A show about celebrating all the things that make us cry. Sarah and Susan’s Cry of the Week choices lead them to talk about how they know each other, The Tale of Despereaux, Lou Rawls’ “Pure Imagination,” The Bangles’ “Eternal Flame,” and immersing yourself in heart break. Then, they are joined by actor, screenwriter, director, comedian Christopher Guest to chat about what makes him cry, having to cry on cue in a film, and the forever evolving crying triggers in It’s A Wonderful Life. Finally, Sarah and Susan discuss Pixar’s Up as they go through some Twitter submitted crying cues.
Cartoonist Kate Beaton is an exemplary weirdo. Her webcomic about Canadian historical figures and other ephemera has gained a worldwide following of one million monthly readers. She has published an acclaimed book and her work has appeared in The New Yorker, but she remains mostly a self-published online artist. Jesse tries to learn her secrets.
Robyn Doolittle and Jonathan Goldsbie talk about unreported smells and Rob Ford’s mastery of modern media.
