How whistleblowers in the US are earning millions from exposing corporate wrongdoing. Ed Butler speaks to lawyer Mychal Wilson about his early experiences as a sales rep for a pharmaceutical company in Los Angeles, and why he blew the whistle on underhand practices. Practicing Louisiana doctor William LaCorte talks about his reputation as a serial whistleblower - making tens of millions of dollars from exposing the wrongdoing of big pharma and hospitals. Plus whistleblowing researcher Professor David Evans from Middlesex University in the UK discusses whether laws rewarding whistleblowers in the US can be applied elsewhere.
