On September 28, 2012, Massachusetts state chemist Annie Dookhan was arrested and charged with obstruction of justice and falsification of academic records. Approximately four months later another chemist, Sonja Farak, was arrested for using the drugs she was supposed to be testing and the Massachusetts Drug Lab Scandal was born. Hosts Jamie Folk and Ilyas Rona will be exploring the William H Hinton, UMass Amherst and State Police crime labs associated with this scandal and speak with the la ...

Harriotte Ranvig of Mass ADAPT speaks about the fight to get more funding for people to live independently. Under COVID, our system of forcing people to live in nursing homes has been catastrophic. But even before the pandemic, ADAPT has fought to fund Personal Care Attendants so that disabled people can live dignified, productive lives. Jordan Ber…
 
Researchers at MIT and the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center are combining machine learning and human-computer interaction to create a better electronic health record (EHR). They developed MedKnowts, a system that unifies the processes of looking up medical records and documenting patient information into a single, interactive interface.Read the…
 
Vatsady Sivongxay from Massachusetts Education Justice Alliance joins us to talk about education. MEJA fought for years to pass the Student Opportunity Act, to ensure that every kid has access to a good education. But even after the bill was passed, the State House has not fully funded it, essentially overturning that decision. Jordan Berg Powers, …
 
We're in the season of hearings! Every bill in the State House has a hearing, most of them happening this fall. We discuss why hearings are designed to have little impact on the opinions of state reps, and how you can use hearings differently to help get your policies passed. Jordan Berg Powers, Jonathan Cohn, and Anna Callahan chat about Massachus…
 
Engineers at MIT have developed a new approach to removing lead or other heavy-metal contaminants from water, in a process that they say is far more energy-efficient than any other currently used system, though there are others under development that come close. Ultimately, it might be used to treat lead-contaminated water supplies at the home leve…
 
Would you like to live longer? It turns out that where you live, not just how you live, can make a big difference. That’s the finding of an innovative study co-authored by an MIT economist, which examines senior citizens across the U.S. and concludes that some locations enhance longevity more than others, potentially for multiple reasons.Read the a…
 
Jamie, Ilyas and Chris review lawyer Nathan Tamulis' Feburary 2016 response to the Massachusetts Office of the Inspector General Supplemental Report. The sheer amount of contradictions, half truths and outright falsehoods that exist in this report is depressingly unsurprising.Bởi Jamie Folk
 
Electrochemical reactions that are accelerated using catalysts lie at the heart of many processes for making and using fuels, chemicals, and materials — including storing electricity from renewable energy sources in chemical bonds, an important capability for decarbonizing transportation fuels. Now, research at MIT could open the door to ways of ma…
 
In the face of grave concerns about misinformation, social media networks and news organizations often employ fact-checkers to sort the real from the false. But fact-checkers can only assess a small portion of the stories floating around online. A new study by MIT researchers suggests an alternate approach: Crowdsourced accuracy judgements from gro…
 
People in the US have a growing awareness of police abuse of power, and are demanding change. Hear personal stories of interactions with police and a discussion of how public viewpoints have changed since the George Floyd protests of last year. Jordan Berg Powers, Jonathan Cohn, and Anna Callahan chat about Massachusetts politics. This is the audio…
 
Politics is overwhelmingly decided by older generations, but we hope that is changing. Between the March for Our Lives, the climate movement, the push for student debt cancellation, and more, young people are increasingly burdened and have gotten more politically involved. We talk to Martha Durkee-Neuman about these policies and more. Jordan Berg P…
 
Redistricting happens once every 10 years, and it defines the boundaries for local, state, and national elected offices. What is the difference between redistricting and re-precincting? How does redistricting affect communities of color? Will there be a large number of open seats in our state government in 2022? Jordan Berg Powers, Jonathan Cohn, a…
 
Members of Congress worked with activists to reverse Biden's decision on the eviction moratorium. While it isn't everything we wanted, it clearly had a positive effect in keeping people in their homes during this crisis. In this episode we talk housing as well as the importance of elected officials working with activists and standing their ground a…
 
The US is one of the worst countries in providing vacation for workers. We do not require that employers provide any paid vacation, or any paid holidays. This doesn't make us more productive, just more stressed. Massachusetts could lead on this, providing a legislative example for other states while offering policy that is good for everyone. Jordan…
 
Jordan Berg Powers, Jonathan Cohn, and Anna Callahan record live at the Boston Common. In this episode we cover a lot of the topics we've covered before, including why state politics matters and is a national strategy, what is wrong with our State House currently, and how it impacts us from a policy perspective. This is the audio version of Incorru…
 
Ilyas, Chris and Jamie go through the rest of the OIG's Supplemental report. They discuss the inconsistencies in the report and begin looking into the Class E drug classification disaster that was briefly touched upon in the report. Much of the testing malfeasance covered in this episode was done by chemists not named Annie Dookhan yet the OIG stil…
 
Join us this Saturday, July 24, at 11am on the Boston Common for a live recording of the podcast! Post a limerick about how bad our State House is on twitter with the hashtag #IMjuly24 for your chance to have your limerick read on the air! It would be easy to fund everything we want at the state level, if only our State House had the guts to do it.…
 
Jamie, Ilyas and Chris begin season 2 of Rigged by covering the latest news on the former Attorney General employees who hid the extent of Sonja Farak's drug use from defense attorneys. They then discuss the 2016 Inspector General supplemental report which got little to no media attention. This report documented the OIG's retesting of samples that …
 
Last week, our state reps voted down three no-brainer rules that would have made our State House more transparent. Today we talk to Erin Leahy from Act On Mass about their work lobbying for these rules reforms for the last 9 months. Ironically (but not surprisingly), they sprung this vote on the reps (and on us) with less than four hours notice. Jo…
 
https://www.incorruptiblemass.org/july-24 Hi, it's Anna Callahan with a short announcement. We wanted to let you all know that we'll be having a live broadcast on Saturday, July 24th, at 11am on the Boston Common. Jordan Berg Powers, Jonathan Cohn, and I would love to see you there in person! Bring your questions about state politics so we can answ…
 
While the legislature did pass some environmental legislation last session, there doesn't seem to be anything approaching a comprehensive Green New Deal-style plan that includes jobs, transportation, housing, etc. We should expect more in a state where polls say that residents would happily pay more to save our planet. Jordan Berg Powers, Jonathan …
 
Season two of Rigged is kicked off with Ilyas, Jamie and Chris giving a preview of what is in store for the new season. We will touch on the new developments with the Drug Lab cases and also explore some other law enforcement driven scandals that have been making headlines in MA. These other scandals will include the multiple arrests of evidence ro…
 
If you don't want to get mad, don't listen to this episode. We give a bunch of examples of our city, state, and national governments bending over backward to allow corporations and the uber-wealthy to skirt the law while burdening regular people with onerous bureaucracy. Can you imagine a world where the opposite happens, where our government makes…
 
Did you know that the vast majority of state reps who sponsor amendments then withdraw them before they can be voted on? Amendments could allow legislators to skip over the byzantine committee process and bring legislation to the floor. But instead of insisting that our state government consider legislation that would help millions of people, state…
