CANARY: THE WASHINGTON POST INVESTIGATES  


Carole Griffin at her home in Hoover, Ala., for The Washington Post's first long-form investigative podcast, Canary: The Washington Post Investigates.

Hosted by reporter Amy Brittain, Canary: The Washington Post Investigates is a seven-part podcast that tells the intertwining stories of two women – Carole Griffin and Lauren Clark – separated by decades but united by a shared refusal to stay silent.

I am grateful to Carole for her bravery and vulnerability, to Photo Editor Nick Kirkpatrick for the assignment, and to Amy Brittain for thoughtful and sensitive storytelling – it's an honor to be a part of such important work.

Listen here: Canary: The Washington Post Investigates or read the investigative report from the Sun. Oct. 4 print edition.
