It started with a tip. Eventually, multiple sources said it was an open secret: The founder of New Hampshire’s largest addiction treatment network was sexually harassing or assaulting women. How did he get away with it?

That question led NHPR’s Lauren Chooljian on a journey into the American substance use disorder treatment industry, where she found a longstanding – and long tolerated – culture of sexual misconduct. Along the way, she and her team also faced serious legal and safety challenges, including multiple incidents of vandalism.

Lauren tells the whole story in the critically acclaimed series The 13th Step – hailed by New York Magazine and The New Yorker as one of the “best podcasts of 2023” and finalist for the duPont-Columbia Award.

Join us for a special behind-the-scenes look at how The 13th Step came together, and hear the latest on the story. Lauren will take audience questions about the podcast and the issues it raises, from trauma and recovery to freedom of the press.
