Max Rivlin-Nadler is an investigative journalist for KPBS whose reporting has appeared in outlets such as the New York Times, the New Republic, the Village Voice and Gothamist. His years-long investigation into New York City's arcane civil forfeiture laws led to a series of lawsuits and reforms which altered a practice that had been taking millions from poor communities for decades.

Since moving to San Diego, he has reported extensively on immigration and criminal justice issues, including the treatment of asylum-seekers along the border, last year's District Attorney race, and the criminalization of homelessness in the midst of California's deepening affordability crisis. A native of Queens, New York, Max attended Oberlin College in Ohio, where he majored in creative writing.
