We’ve often wondered what happens with the investigations featured on the podcast. So, we decided to check in with three newsrooms featured on previous episodes and find out. Brian Rosenthal will share the impact of his Houston Chronicle investigation into Texas special education. Journalists at Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting share an exciting discovery about the identity of Mountain Jane Doe. And the Associated Press reporters behind the 2015 investigation “Seafood from Slaves” take us through their latest investigation.

You can find the podcast on Soundcloud, iTunes, Stitcher and Google Play. If you have a story you think we should feature on the show, drop us a note at web@ire.org. We’d love to hear from you.
