Episode post date:
June 7, 2021
Why I enjoyed it:
As a journalist, I loved hearing about Leah Nylen's journey into the profession. Nylen, a seasoned reporter, recounts how the film "All the President's Men" influenced her as a youngster. (It has to do with meeting mysterious sources in parking garages.)
Leah Nylen, a reporter with @politico who covers #antitrust. She talks about cultivating sources and writing in plain English for her audiences.
John Roberti of Allen & Overy LLP teams with Anora Wang of Davis Wright Tremaine LLP.
