Great host and fascinating guests

Jeb White is a whistleblower turned attorney who supports whistleblowers, and he’s incredibly well connected—this show is a who’s-who of whistleblowing. (Enron whistleblower? Check. Bernie Madoff inner circle? Check.) He’s a generous host who brings out the best in his guests. Highly recommend.

Great show but audio needs improvement

Great show, but the host’s audio needs improvement, had to skip a couple episodes because his audio sounded like a bad recording off a cell phone - oof.
