Get to the real story with Laura Starecheski | Inflection Point

Laura Starechecki

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 radio show from the Center for Investigative Reporting and PRX. Before joining CIR, Reber started and led the investigative unit at NPR, and shares how earlier in her career she got her big break at CBC when the Berlin Wall came down. 


Laura Starecheski is a reporter and producer for CIR who brings us this month's Reveal story on abuse in traumatic brain injury facilities--"neurorehab centers." Starecheski gives us an inside look at this month's Reveal story...plus a few things she's learned about talking to yourself, negotiating and listening.  

Lauren Schiller is the host and creator ofInflection Point, a podcast and nationally syndicated public radio show about how women rise up. Launched in 2015, and produced in partnership with KALW and PRX, Inflection Point was one of the first radio shows and podcasts in the country to exclusively feature conversations with women about how they build power and lead change. In 2008, Lauren co-created and co-hosted “The Lady Brain Show”, one of the first ever female-led podcasts. Lauren is an award-winning producer, was the Executive Producer of Audio for Salon Media, where she is a regular contributor, and has been a guest host for “The Conversation” on BBC World Service. Lauren is also a speaker and moderator at live events including INFORUM, The Commonwealth Club, Bay Area Book Festival, JCCSF, and Cal Performances
