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.

Cool show but too quiet

Love the cases discussed but the sound is really quiet. It is the only podcast that I have to adjust the volume on.

Great organization

Taxpayers Against Fraud is a great organization. This will be an informative podcast, giving insight into the key players fighting those who defraud the government.
