Welcome to episode #884 of Six Pixels of Separation - The ThinkersOne Podcast.

Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation - The ThinkersOne Podcast - Episode #884. Meet Dr. Kelly Richmond Pope, our guide through the shadowy labyrinth of financial fraud and the newest rockstar in the world of accounting (and yes, those words can go together). Kelly isn't your typical number cruncher - she's a bona fide detective of financial misdeeds, a virtuoso in the symphony of numbers, and a professor of Forensic Accounting at DePaul University. Gaining recognition from the AICPA and the CPA Practice Advisor, she's been listed among the top 25 most powerful women in accounting, and her expertise? Sniffing out the faintest whiff of financial fraud, dissecting corporate culture, and assessing compliance systems designed to tackle internal control challenges. With her knack for storytelling, she turned her research on executive misconduct into a fascinating documentary, All The Queen's Horses, a deep dive into the largest municipal fraud in U.S. history. But it doesn't stop at films. Her TED Talk, How Whistle-blowers Shape History, has hit over 1.6 million views, helping organizations and individuals appreciate the power of internal whistleblowing. The story gets juicier, with her new book, Fool Me Once, she pulls back the curtain on the trillion-dollar fraud industry. Filled with tales of fraudsters, their victims, and the whistleblowers who dare to expose them. Her aim? To make fraud more relatable, and by doing so, protect us and our companies from falling into the fraudster's trap. This is a new way to think about what it really means to "do the right thing." Enjoy the conversation...
