Compliance into the Weeds is the only weekly podcast which takes a deep dive into a compliance related topic, literally going into the weeds to more fully explore a subject. This past weekend saw some of the largest protests and violence this country has seen in 50+ years in the wake of the killing of George Floyd. In a very somber episode, in this podcast Matt Kelly and Tom Fox try to make some sense of leadership responses to the protests over the Floyd killing and explore if there is a compliance-based approach to remedying the institutional racism which led to his killing.
