When I first interviewed former bank robber Joe Loya back in 2014, I had no idea how rich and engaging his whole story could be.
Out now, from Western Sound and Acast Studios, The Score: Bank Robber Diaries is a 15-episode deep dive into the life and times of Joe Loya, aka The Beirut Bandit, aka one of Southern California’s most prolific bank robbers.

The history of the CIA’s post-9/11 torture program — and the effort by the US Senate to expose it — is the subject of the new Scott Z. Burns film, The Report.
We partnered with the film’s producer Topic and its distributor Amazon Studios to make the official companion podcast.
Hosted by NPR Embedded’s Kelly McEvers and Daniel Jones, lead author of the US Senate Torture Report, the show’s eight episodes tell the story of how the CIA program started, grew out of control and was reined in by Congressional oversight and public pressure.

We’d never produced scripted shows before, but we found the process invigorating and creatively inspiring in all new ways.
