5-6-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Wrapping Up the Week with FOIA Master Jason Leopold

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) No clever title for this episode. I was toying with "FOIA Terrorist for Hire" or "BuzzFeed Fire Sale" but I figured that the most important part of it is that Jason Leopold is my guest today. Jason has been a senior investigative reporter for BuzzFeed News since 2016. During his time there, he broke a number of huge stories, got nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, and solidified his place as the foremost FOIA expert in media today.

So I prefer to refer to Jason Leopold as The FOIA Master! And he joins us today. Jason, using his immense power of the pen, filed the paperwork and, in return, was able to get an exclusive [...]

Today is May 4 -- as in May the Fourth... and Shirley Serban made [...]
