This time, Kelly and her team have set their sights on a single topic: videos of police encounters.Every time one of these recordings surfaces in the news, it becomes clear how important it is to understand whats happening, and to see it from all perspectives. In each of these episodes, Embedded will tell the story of a different police encounter: the shooting death of a black man in Charlotte, NC, the sudden killing of a police officer in Flagstaff, AZ, and the harrowing and surprising story of a man who confronted authorities twice in one day in New Richmond, OH. Listeners will hear how more videos of police shootings dont always mean more answers or easy solutions.
