Unfair & Unbalanced Podcast with Tom Fox & Roy Snell – Episode #1


Roy Snell, Tom Fox, Yates Memo, Volkswagen Scandal, Compliance Program

Taped at SCCE’s 2015 Compliance & Ethics Institute at the ARIA in Las Vegas. In this first episode, noted FCPA lawyer and blogger Tom Fox, and Society of Corporate Compliance & Ethics CEO, Roy Snell, discuss the importance of an independent compliance officer, misconceptions about compliance in general (hint: it’s not that hard), updating the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the most important word in the Yates Memo, and some of the immediate effects of the Volkswagen scandal.

  1. The “Frank Version” or quick summary of points and takeaways that stuck with me after listening to the podcast.

    ► Respect for the accuser and the accused
    ► Independence of the compliance officer is becoming more of a focal point
    ► The game changing aspects of the Yates Memo, particularly point #1
    ► The importance of disagreement and presenting it in a professional manner

    Looking forward to more podcasts from Roy Snell and Tom Fox
    Do I agree with everything stated in the podcast…of course not…but do I agree that what was said was thought provoking and worth listening to…definitely.
