Investigative Journalism: Mark Schapiro Unleashed

Author Mark Schapiro (Exposed: The Toxic Chemistry of Everyday Products and What’s at Stake for American Power) and Australian investigative journalist Marian Wilkinson discuss the ins and outs of investigative reporting with host Leigh Sales in this video from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation program Unleashed.

The interview is an hour and eight minutes long, so grab a bowl of popcorn and get comfy. I don’t know about you, but I could listen to Mark’s gravelly voice all day.
