KickBack: The Global Anticorruption Podcast

I’m pleased to announce the launch of KickBack: The Global Anticorruption Podcast, a joint enterprise between myself (on behalf of the GAB team), and the Interdisciplinary Corruption Research Network (ICRN), represented in this venture by Nils Kobis and Christopher Starke. Our plan for this podcast is to feature regular interviews with leading voices in the anticorruption field, from academia, politics, activism, journalism, and elsewhere. We hope that, like GAB, the podcast will help to enhance serious debate and discussion about important issues in the field from a variety of different perspectives.

For our first episode, we are delighted to feature an interview with Yale Professor Susan Rose-Ackerman. (What better way to launch our anticorruption podcast than with the person who helped launch the modern economic analysis of corruption?) You can find this episode, along with a separate segment in which Nils, Christopher, and I introduce the podcast (and ourselves), in the following locations:

We hope that the podcast will also be available soon on iTunes.

If you like it, please subscribe/follow, and tell all your friends! And if you have suggestions for voices you’d like to hear on the podcast, just send me a message and let me know.

  1. Congratulations! The conversation with Professor Rose-Ackerman was very interesting and was great as a first episode for the podcast.
    I particularly liked the question regarding Professor Rose-Ackerman’s changing views on corruption over the course of her long academic career. That’s a question which I wish that future interviewees would be asked as well, when it’s relevant.
