Welcome to the only roundtable podcast in compliance. Today, we have a quartet of Jonathan Armstrong, Jay Rosen, Jonathan Marks and special guest panelist Mary Shirley for a deep dive into a potpourri of issues and topics. We end with a veritable mélange of rants and shouts outs.

  1. Jay Rosen looks at the anticipated anti-trust policy issues and enforcement coming out of the Biden Administration. Rosen shouts out to those attorneys at the Department of Justice and State AGs’ offices who stood up when Trump tried to steal the election.

 

  1. Mary Shirley sits in as a special guest panelist. Mary discusses the recent actions of the CCO at Activision/Blizzard. Shirley rants about the lessening of the CCO role.

 

  1. Jonathan Marks considers the role of internal audit in internal investigations. Marks rants about MLB having a Field of Dreams baseball game and then blacking it out to almost ½ of the country.

 

  1. Jonathan Armstrong discusses the Amazon GDPR fine issues by the Luxemburg Data Protection Authority. In a melancholy shout out, Armstrong honors 1st responders to the Plymouth shooting in the UK.

 

  1. Tom Fox shouts out Texas Governor Gregg Abbott and his inaction on the Texas Power Grid crisis, which increased his campaign contributions from the energy industry.
