New York will no longer prosecute or arrest children under age 12 in 2023 for pretty much all crimes except homicide. Advocates are hopeful this will interrupt the school to prison pipeline — especially for Black and Latinx kids. On the In Depth podcast, we hear how trauma-informed practices could provide better outcomes for at-risk kids.

The Bronx is home to 1.4 million people – a population bigger than most American cities – but only houses two full-time bookstores. This makes it a book desert.

America has a ton of clothing waste. It’s part of the reason many eco-conscious shoppers prefer thrifting. There’s one problem: even when thrifting, many still buy a ton of clothes and toss barely used garments. Social media is fueling this via massive thrift hauls, a.k.a showing off your shopping sprees. Thrifting and environmental experts help us to explore whether or not shopping secondhand has lost its environmental focus. We’re also looking at how are low-income communities — who’ve historically relied on thrifting for its affordable prices — are affected.  ..read more

Is New York's film tax credit worth the cost?

Over the last century Hollywood may have become synonymous with stardom, but believe it or not the film and TV industry was born on the east coast.

This has resulted in a surge of productions throughout the tri-state area.  The primary reason for that renewed interest? Tax credits.  New York state has one of the most generous film and TV tax credit programs in the countr ..read more

To wrap up Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, In Depth takes a closer look at the Native Hawaiian diaspora in New York City. The media often solely depicts Hawaii as a beautiful paradise, but the islands and their people have more dimensions than that. Issues within the local economy have led many Native Hawaiians to depart the islands in recent decades, oftentimes against their desires. Today, about half of all Native Hawaiians live outside of Hawaii. For born-and-raised Hawaiians who’ve relocated to to NYC, how do they keep their culture alive in the diaspora? And for ind ..read more
