On Saturday, just in time for Valentine’s Day (though none of our segments are likely to put you in a romantic mood), we’ll be launching our next episode of “Reveal” chock-full of new investigations. You’ll hear us track down secrets one powerful religious hierarchy was keeping under wraps; troops opening up to us about their experiences with torture and whether officers are being held accountable; and our look at why so many cities in the U.S. are left without high-speed broadband.

In our last episode, we looked at the lack of access to day care records, crimes in the cloud, politics and the Environmental Protection Agency, and U.S. parents using surrogates from Mexico to carry their babies. There’s a lot in there, and if you haven’t had a chance to listen, you can do so now here. And don’t forget to check out our short episodes on China buying up America’s pork and Afghan women being jailed for escaping bad marriages.

Listen to a few sneak peeks of our upcoming episode below. And if you haven’t already, make sure to subscribe to our podcast.
