ProPublica excels at investigating overlooked subjects. Vox is producing some stellar video storytelling. Since 2017, the two media brands have teamed up with a very good video show inspired from ProPublica’s stories, ranging from justice to health care.

This recent episode about floodings is especially good and creative: it explores how the erection of levees can backfire on surrounding areas. The video shows an instructive real-life simulation in a mechanics lab.
