We like to have a little fun on this podcast, as Kongo Kong can attest from last time, but on today’s episode our fun takes a more serious twist.

Over the last couple years, Lansing, Michigan has been ground zero for one of the largest sexual assault scandals in our country’s history.  The investigation, prosecution and sentencing of predator doctor Larry Nassar has forever impacted this community, the hundreds of victims and their families who live nearby and the major university at the center of it all.

From the beginning, Matt Mencarini has been covering the scandal as criminal justice reporter for the Lansing State Journal.  Today, on the Cold Oatmeal podcast, we talk to Matt about reporting true evil.
