There are a few “This Week In…” video podcasts that I’m a fan of. iPad Today (which really is misnamed: it’s a weekly show), This Week In Startups, and a couple of others.
So when Tom Fox and I, over dinner, started talking about how we could collaborate on something, the idea of a weekly videocast sounded pretty good.
The result is This Week in FCPA. (thisweekinfcpa.com).
Every week, Tom and I will talk about the latest developments in anti-corruption. This week, episode #1, we talk about the UK Bribery Act and whether and how companies should react; we discuss the recent Johnson and Johnson deferred prosecution agreement with its interesting new Schedule D; and we discuss the state-owned entities challenges that have been the commentators flavor of the month. We also chat about contract provisions, audit rights, and a few other things.
We’re hoping it’ll be an interesting addition to the profession of anti-corruption.
