In this episode, Jane talks with Jason Leopold, a senior investigative reporter at BuzzFeed News whose notable work includes reporting on the FinCEN Files, a project in collaboration with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists that consisted of thousands of documents pointing to large-scale global financial corruption. The documents were sourced primarily from U.S. Treasury whistleblower Natalie Mayflower Sours Edwards, who was sentenced to six months in jail for one conspiracy charge.
Leopold discusses his approach to working with whistleblowers and sources and talks about his views on how whistleblowers should go about finding reporters to help tell their stories.
