The Former Whistleblower Lawyer Behind “ICARUS” and “Athlete A”

For decades, Steve Cohen represented whistleblowers who’ve uncovered dozens of cases of fraud involving health care and government contracting. But in 2009, he made a change, co-founding the Chicago Media Project, helping to finance dozens of award-winning documentaries.

In today’s episode of Fraud in America, Steve sits down to talk about his story, and the impact documentaries he’s helped create, including the Academy Award-winning documentary “ICARUS,” which uncovered a major international doping scandal.
