Episode #16

In Alcatel,Haiti Telecom,ICE,iTunes Podcast,Lindsey,O'Shea,Oracle,State-Owned Entities,TWIFCPAVideocast on September 11, 2011 by Howard@OpenAir

Show Notes:
Not a single technical issue for this one: no multiple-part episode because my system shut down, no nothing.  Just the show.

1. Haiti Telecom: it’s an SOE! No, it’s not! Yes, it is!
2. ICE doesn’t get en banc review. And Howard goes off on a rant against Alcatel-Lucent (and just won’t let it go)
3. Lindsey & O’Shea: the DOJ can’t seem to catch a break.  Tom takes us through the legal issues.
4. Oracle and the entire tech sector

And believe it or not, just that takes over an hour. Plus, Howard admits that he gushed like a little girl when he met the Above the Law guys. You know you would’ve too, admit it.

It’s really good to be back.



Episode #11 of This Week in FCPA

In Africa Sting Case,ICE,Johnson Controls,Opinion Release,TWIFCPAVideocast on July 8, 2011 by Howard@OpenAir

UNFORTUNATELY, THERE IS NO VIDEO UNTIL ABOUT THE 20:00 MINUTE MARK.  Even then, I lost Tom’s video feed, so you only get me. Many apologies for the technical difficulties.  Also, we accidentally recorded the pre-show, so you get a sneak peak behind the scenes of what we sound like (for about 2:28) before we officially start the show.  Lots of technical issues this week, for which I apologize.

You can hear just the audio at
