In this Sunday Edition: Current and former medical staff at LA County jails describe a working environment that's dysfunctional, abusive and detrimental to providing health care. One county physician describes it as a daily “human rights disaster.” And much of the criticism is leveled at Chief Medical Officer Dr. Sean Henderson. This week, criminal justice reporter Robert Garrova talked about the KPCC investigation with All Things Considered host Nick Roman. Then: The L.A. County Office of Diversion and Reentry houses thousands of people with mental health challenges who otherwise would be incarcerated. The program is widely heralded as a success. But an ODR program that helps those convicted of felonies or awaiting trial on felony charges is no longer accepting clients because it has maxed out its funding. The question now is: will the county consider putting up more money for it? Criminal justice reporter Emily Elena Dugdale sought to find some answers.

The Midterm elections are six months away and the most recent polling suggests Republicans have an early edge. If they take the House, Rep. Kevin McCarthy is likely to become the majority leader. He garnered attention in the past two weeks when The New York Times released audio of private phone calls and meetings he had with other GOP leaders. They were recorded in the aftermath of the Capitol riot and they tell a very different story than what he said publicly.In the leaked tapes, McCarthy is critical of Donald Trump's role in the insurrection and other members of his caucus. But do Republican voters care?We listen to the sound with one of the reporters who broke the story before heading to McCarthy's district to get a response from his community.This conversation is part of our Remaking America collaboration with six public radio stations around the country, including KVPR, NPR for Central California.
