Collateral Damage

We cover three aspects of violence in Baltimore: Sun reporter Andrea McDaniels discusses her recent three-part series on the long-term effects of violence on victims' families; social worker Megan Leschak talks about her efforts to identify criminal defendants who have themselves been victims of violence and suffer from PTSD; and we meet James Timpson, director of Safe Streets Park Heights, on the role of "interrupters" in keeping young men from killing each other.

Maureen Harvie is senior producer for On the Record. She is a graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and joined WYPR in 2014 as an intern for the newsroom. Whether coordinating live election night coverage, capturing the sounds of a roller derby scrimmage, interviewing veterans, or booking local authors, she is always on the lookout for the next story.
