“I love sports. Whenever I can, I always watch the Detroit Tigers on the radio.”-Gerald R. Ford
In this over-communicated age, we wanted to give our audience different ways to consume information beyond reading and television appearances – a way, as former President Ford used to infer, to “see by hearing.”
Over the summer, we launched three new regular broadcasts: a monthly co-host with venture capitalist and former law firm managing partner Jonathan Aberman, on his program, What’s Working in Washington (WWiW), which is broadcast on WFED and nationally; a monthly co-host for a new webcast with the Corporate Counsel Business Journal, to be distributed to 40,000 general counsels; and, a new podcast, Real Washington, which will be inaugurated next week and distributed to more than 300,000 people.
This week, on WWiW, Jonathan and I are joined by Shawn Wright, a partner in the white collar criminal practice at Blank Rome, and Ayman Rizkalla, a white collar partner at Akerman, to discuss the ever-increasing challenges to boards of directors, including liability, increased regulation, incentivized whistleblowers, activist investors, new compliance rules, and the Yates memo (discussed in more detail below).
