First up in today’s two-part show, Patrick Woodall from Americans for Financial Reform talks about the problem of private equity firms in the healthcare sector and offers details from his latest co-authored report, “The Deadly Combination Of Private Equity And Nursing Homes During A Pandemic.”
Then, Reveal journalist Stan Alcorn tells us about his reporting on the New Mexico Civil Guard and the presence of armed militias and individuals at protests around the country—including Steven Baca, who shot a demonstrator in Albuquerque on June 15, and Kyle Rittenhouse, the seventeen-year-old who opened fire at a protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin earlier this week, killing two and injuring one.
Patrick Woodall is a senior researcher at Americans for Financial Reform, a national coalition of over two hundred community, civil rights, labor, and consumer groups that works to hold Wall Street accountable and make the financial system work for everyone.
Stan Alcorn is a reporter and producer for Reveal. He previously worked as a reporter for Marketplace, covering business and economic news, and has helped launch new shows at Marketplace, Slate, and WNYC, in addition to reporting for a variety of outlets.
