“Taking Cover” is a new investigative podcast from NPR’s documentary show “Embedded”. The podcast examines a 2004 Marine-on-Marine friendly fire incident in Iraq that killed two Americans and an Iraqi comrade, and injured more than a dozen men.

“We spent three years digging into the tip we received, talking to the families, the Marines who survived, officials and reading the investigative report,” said NPR Pentagon reporter Tom Bowman. “This is a gripping and tragic story about mistakes, miscalculation and lies, and about how Marine veterans are still haunted by what happened to them on a single night in a small schoolhouse in Iraq.”

The series is hosted by NPR investigations team senior producer Graham Smith and NPR Pentagon reporter Tom Bowman. The first episode will publish on 3/23, with new episodes every Thursday.
