Blowing the whistle on illegality, waste, or fraud is hard enough in the western, developed world. But how does it work in nations with much less legal infrastructure and protections?

For years American military forces burned the by-products of their activities at sites called burn pits. Medical waste, discarded shells and bullets, rubber, plastic, and all sorts of other toxic materials were burned next to overseas military bases.

On this episode of the Whistleblowers John Kiriakou sits down with former marine Joseph Hickman to discuss his work and his book detailing the horrors of the burn pits.

It’s no secret the American government during the George W.

An air marshal was fired by the TSA when the agency was caught trying to cut federal air marshall flights after 9/11. The TSA was forced to take him back but chose to put him in dead-end jobs, prompting him to sue the agency once again.

TSA whistleblower Robert MacLean speaks with John Kiriakou on this episode of The Whistleblowers.
