Episode 182: Jerri Williams - My Media Empire, A Look Behind the Curtain
FBI Retired Case File Review
In this episode of FBI Retired Case File Review, I share updates about FBI Myths and Misconceptions: A Manual for Armchair Detectives, download stats for FBI Retired Case File Review and reveal changes I’m making to the podcast release schedule. I’m interviewed by my friend and fellow podcaster Javier Leiva, host of Pretend Radio, a show featuring stories about people pretending to be someone else. Javier and I regularly have conversations about producing our shows. This episode is practically a recording of one of our “mastermind” sessions, except this one is all about me. Podcasting is not as easy as it looks. Often, other life commitments and technical issues can throw off the production flow. I believe I've finally gotten control of my issues with audio quality, with the exception now and then of a distorted voice, usually mine. Podcasting makes me happy. However, writing and reading books also make me happy and recently I can’t seem to find the time to do either. The premise and plot twists for the third book in my crime fiction series have been collecting in my head for more than a year. Starting in October, I'll be posting episodes every other week.

Episode 181: Phil Coghlan – Hit Man: A Technical Manual For Independent Contractors
FBI Retired Case File Review
Retired agent Phil Coghlan served in the FBI for 28 years. He was assigned to Columbia Resident Agency (RA) in the Cincinnati Division,  the Washington Field Office, the Norfolk Division’s Peninsula RA, and FBIHQ.  During his career, Phil specialized in violent crimes, serial killer and child abduction investigations, and was a team leader on the Child Abduction Rapid Deployment Team. In this episode of FBI Retired Case File Review, Phil Coghlan reviews his investigation of a sophisticated and complex two—year crime spree involving bank robberies, bombs/IEDs, and murder, and the highly controversial book, Hit Man: A Technical Manual For Independent Contractors that his bank robbery subjects read and used to commit their crimes. Phil also provides historical insight into the famously heated debate between Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flint and Reverend Jerry Falwell regarding the limits of freedom of speech and how lawsuits about the First Amendment and the publication of the Hitman book connected Phil Coghlan to the court case, and the subsequent book and feature film, both named Deliberate Intent. During the second half of Phil Coghlan’s Bureau career, he worked terrorism investigation as part of the Joint Terrorism Task Force.  After retiring from the FBI, he was fortunate to continue working for the Bureau as an instructor at the Human Intelligence (HUMINT) Operations Training Unit, where he trains current active agents on informant development. He also conducts investigations into allegations of workplace misconduct for private sector clients.   Join my Reader Team to get the FBI Reading Resource - Books about the FBI, written by FBI agents, the 20 clichés about the FBI Reality Checklist, and keep up to date on the FBI in books, TV, and movies via my monthly email.

Episode 180: Michael E. Anderson - Passport Fraud, Investment Fraud, Murder for Hire
FBI Retired Case File Review
Retired agent Michael E. Anderson served with the FBI for 28 years. His initial assignment was to the San Antonio Division, Austin Resident Agency where he worked white-collar crime matters. In this episode of FBI Retired Case File Review, Michael Anderson reviews his investigation of German national Georg Dudov, for a money-laundering scheme that netted $2.3 million from people who thought they were investing in oil wells. In furtherance of the scam, Dudov participated in passport fraud when he attempted to bribe an immigration official to issue him a fraudulent American passport and tried to hire a hitman to have an associate killed. Later in his Bureau career, Mike was a supervisor at FBI Headquarters, before reporting to Houston as a White Collar Crime supervisor managing highly complex Financial Crimes and Intellectual Property Rights investigations. We previously spoke to Mike Anderson in episode 129 about the Enron Investigation, the largest and most complex White Collar Crime case in FBI history, for which he received the Attorney General’s Award for Exceptional Service. Subsequently, he was promoted to Assistant Special Agent in Charge (ASAC) and initially oversaw the entire Criminal Program. He also served as the FBI Houston Chief Policy and Compliance Officer for over six years. Michael E. Anderson is a Certified Fraud Examiner who has spoken extensively about Enron and ethics to universities, private groups and companies around the country. He can be contacted via his LinkedIn profile. Mike suggested that we dedicate this episode to FBI Agent Brian Crews, a colleague who worked with him on the Enron investigation and who died of cancer in 2018 as a result of his work as a member of the Evidence Response Team at the World Trade Center following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
