The Squad, ESPN

Reporter, Consulting Producer

 

In 2018,  I got a tip about a former Olympian named Conrad Avondale Mainwaring, who'd allegedly been molesting boys and young men for nearly five decades, and who might still be at it. (That's Mainwaring below, with one of his "squads" circa the 1970s.) Once I'd done enough reporting and was sure there was a story to tell, I went to ESPN with it, knowing they'd be willing to put the resources into such an important story. This Emmy award-winning T.V. documentary is the result of our 14-month-long investigation, which brought him out of the shadows. It’s the tale of more than 50 men who say that, over the course of the past 40-plus years, they were physically abused and mentally manipulated by their “coach” and how they banded together, decades later, to find justice. Here's a link to the trailer, which will take you to the main story.

Deep in the Mojave Desert, there is a little town with a big name and a bizarre history: California City. For decades, real estate developers have sold a dream here: if you buy land now, you’ll be rich one day. Thousands of people bought this dream. Many were young couples and hard-working immigrants looking to build a better future. But much of the land they bought is nearly worthless. In this new podcast from LAist Studios, host Emily Guerin tells a story of money, power and deception.
