Brian Lamb's inquiries dug into our OpenTheBooks' mission, vision, data capture and oversight reports. It's a robust body of work that we are very proud of - there was a lot to discuss over the course of an hour.
 
In the interview, we had an opportunity to tell our organization's story from the beginning and explain the vision behind our lifelong commitment to government oversight. 
 
Have you ever wondered how OpenTheBooks conducts its oversight? Adam Andrzejewski explained the process we use to hold government accountable. 
 
Brian Lamb asked hard questions about our federal oversight reports. Here's a list of our reports covered in the interview: 
  • Ivy League, Inc. - The government's $42 billion subsidy of the Ivy League schools. Watch the segment. Read the report
     
  • The National Foundation on the Arts and Humanities - Hundreds of millions of dollars in federal arts and humanities grants flowing to asset-rich organizations, not the starving artist. Watch the segment. Read the report
     
  • The Veterans Affairs Scandal Two Years Later - Spending $20 million in luxury art while sick veterans die waiting to see a doctor. 
    Watch the segment. Read the report
     
  • Farm Subsidies & The Big Dogs - Millions of dollars in federal farm subsidies to urban areas where there are no farms. Watch the segment. Read the report
     
  • Fortune 100 Companies -  $1.2 trillion in federal contracts and grants to the Fortune 100. Watch the segment. Read the report
     
  • Lawyered Up 2017 - 36,000 federal lawyers enforcing the regulated states of America. Watch the segment. Read the FY2015 report
