    Rita McGrath & Kelly Richmond-Pope, a Professor at DePaul University - Thought Sparks

    Forensic accounting and filmmaking? How does that go together? Well, join Kelly Richmond-Pope, a Professor at DePaul University in Chicago as we delve in what she's learned from years of studying fraudsters, scammers and backroom operators of all kinds. Her new book is "Fool Me Once" and it uncovers what makes perps tick, why victims are so gullible, and why whistleblowers are so morally righteous. It's serious stuff but also legitimately hilarious.
