The Frontier’s newest addition, Cliff Adcock, spoke at the IRE workshop Friday morning about how to find and use public records in Oklahoma. On this week’s podcast, Adcock and IRE Executive Director Doug Haddix discuss the state of investigative journalism in the United States and how IRE works to keep the profession alive and better than ever.
