Chicken lttle ,

If you are interested in fraud you need to listen

Leah does a great job in her podcast. Full disclosure: I’m a colleague and have been a guest. I am a regular listener because Leah brings such a variety of guests and I always leave feeling great about our field. I think this is a must listen if you are serious about fighting fraud and keeping current.
