In this episode, Jane talks with Rosemary Dew, one of the first hundred women to join the FBI. Dew discusses her experience moving up the ranks of the FBI, the treatment she received from superiors and fellow agents, and her decision to share her story with the media. Turner and Dew discuss working in the FBI as both women and whistleblowers, and how the Bureau deals with both groups in insidious ways.
Dew is the author of “Your FBI: How the FBI Suppresses Whistleblowers to Hide FBI Scandals and Crimes,” which highlights the stories of fifteen FBI whistleblowers, including well-known figures like Frederic Whitehurst and Bassem Youssef. Dew discusses a selection of stories from the book and what she’s learned from her research in compiling whistleblower stories.
