The Rest Is Silence - by Brian Calvert
Amanda McDonough has had hearing problems all her life. She wore hearing aids and hid the fact from everyone she knew. Mostly she got by, until she made a decision that changed everything.

Reveal is a new investigative program from the Center for Investigative Reporting and PRX. On this Reveal pilot, WBEZ reporters show how heroin moves from Juarez to Chicago and into the Midwest; reports from inside "The Box" from teens in solitary confinement; and an update on the Center for Investigative Reporting's examination of prescription drug abuse in the VA.

Reveal is hosted by Al Letson from State of the Re:Union.
