In this episode of Observer Radio, journalist Charlotte Keith joins us to talk about property tax lending. In her six-month investigation for the Observer, Keith and co-writer Caelainn Barr discovered that property tax lending is a virtually risk-free business, but for the most vulnerable homeowners it can be a trap that leads to crippling debt and foreclosure.

Also, Observer staff writer Emily DePrang joins us to recount her spiritual examination of the megachurch phenomenon.
