As NPR's former Baghdad correspondent, Kelly McEvers
immersed herself in many dangerous and traumatic situations.
Her new podcast, "Embedded," applies the same in-depth
reporting across a range of stories. In one episode McEvers
embeds with a biker club after a fatal shootout, and in another
she travels to El Salvador to see firsthand how gangs terrorize
families. McEvers, who is also the co-host of NPR's All Things
Considered, joins Forum to talk about her work and how she
convinces cops and opiate addicts to confide in her.

Guests:

Kelly McEvers, host of "Embedded" podcast; co-host, NPR's "All Things Considered"
