Host of the Center for Investigative Reporting's Reveal radio show, Letson is performing his one-man show at The Marsh in San Francisco. Summer in Sanctuary is an autobiographical narrative chronicling Letson’s summer working as a creative writing teacher at a community center in an economically challenged Florida neighborhood. Angie and Al will discuss his show, and his life as both a creative soul and a journalist.

Letson created and hosted the State of the Re-Union podcast, honored with a Peabody award and three consecutive Edward R. Murrow award. He then joined CIR to help launch and host Reveal, public radio's first investigative journalism show. The show’s pilot won a Peabody Award (2013) for its investigation of the over-prescribing of opiates.
