The academic and athletic scandal at the University of North Carolina dominated headlines for years.

Allegations of paper classes and inappropriate assistance to student-athletes prompted internal and external investigations. And newly released correspondence shows what was going on behind-the-scenes in the midst of revelations about academic fraud. 

News and Observer investigative reporter Dan Kane takes a look back at the events and the administration's response in a series called Carolina's Blind Side. Host Frank Stasio talks with Kane about the allegations, response and what lessons were learned from the events.
