A wine night among friends back in 2015 helped expose a huge drinking-water crisis that has yet to be resolved.

One guest — a water expert — asked host pediatrician Mona Hanna-Attisha whether she was aware of what was happening to the water in Flint, Michigan, where Hanna-Attisha practices.

The concerns her guest raised prompted Hanna-Attisha to start investigating and, later, to publicize her findings despite attempts from officials to discredit them.

Hanna-Attisha went on to write What the Eyes Don't See, a book about her experiences, and discussed the whole journey with Fresh Air’s Terry Gross.
