The Real Informant

This American Life is a Chicago Public Radio broadcast hosted by Ira Glass and syndicated on NPR. On September 15, 2000, the program aired a story about an FBI anti-trust investigation of unprecedented proportions.

We hear from Kurt Eichenwald, whose book The Informant is about the price fixing conspiracy at the food company ADM, Archer Daniels Midland, and the executive who cooperated with the FBI in recording over 250 hours of secret video and audio tapes, probably the most remarkable videotapes ever made of an American company in the middle of a criminal act.

This is an amazing story for so many reasons and deserves to have been made into a movie. I just hope Soderbergh, Damon and Warner Bros. do it justice.
