We want to share a new podcast with you! Obscured tells stories that unfold largely out of the public eye. Investigative journalists and creators of Obscured Emily Previti and Stephanie Marudas are sharing the latest episode from their series “From Words to Weapons” with Bad Watchdog listeners. Obscured’s sixth episode of “From Words to Weapons” focuses on how county jails treat people with mental health conditions.  Emily and Stephanie talk with journalist Brett Sholtis, who investigated this issue in Pennsylvania. Brett investigated interactions between corrections officers and inmates with mental health conditions; specifically, he looked into how tasers, restraints, and other types of force are utilized within county jails. The conversation also delves into how a lack of transparency about what happens in these county jails can prevent accountability and public understanding of these issues.
