Welcome to the only roundtable podcast in compliance. Today, we have the full quintet of Jonathan Armstrong, Jay Rosen, Matt Kelly, Jonathan Marks and Mike Volkov for a potpourri of discussions and ending with a veritable mélange of rants and shouts outs.

  1. Jonathan Armstrong critiques the recent SFO conviction of two former Unaoil employees and the controversy the SFO and its Director, Lisa Osofsky now find themselves in regarding their conduct. Armstrong shouts out to the West Indies cricket team for traveling to the UK to play at Lord’s.
  1. Jay Rosen considers telemedicine in the time of Covid-19. What does it mean for the practice of medicine? What are the compliance issues involved? Jay rants about the Trump Administration targeting surveillance on journalist in Portland and across the country.
  1. Matt Kelly looks at two recent US domestic corruption cases; one in Illinois involving ComEd and one in Ohio involving the Speaker of the Ohio House of Representatives. Matt shouts out to Rebecca Jones the former Florida state employee who left the government to start her own public record of Covid-19 in Florida when the state quit reporting on it.

He draws out the lessons learned from both cases. He shouts out to podcasters and the podcasting community for getting their messages out.
  1. Jonathan Marks considers parallels he has observed in the development of the compliance profession from those he lived through in the Internal Audit world after Enron and WorldCom.
