The GCR Pod, Episode 1: An interview with Bill Baer

Welcome to the GCR Pod, a new podcast from the reporters and editors of Global Competition Review. Twice a month, GCR Pod host Ron Knox and other members of our editorial team will break down the most important news and developments in the antitrust world, based on our in-depth reporting and research from around the globe. We’ll tackle the hot topics, and dig deep on developments from conferences, courtrooms and countries worldwide. The podcast will also include interviews with newsmakers on the front lines of competition policy and casework. In this first episode of the pod, we interview Bill Baer, a partner at Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer and the former head of the US Department of Justice’s antitrust division. We talk to Baer about the revolving door in US antitrust, monopoly enforcement during the Obama era and the Democrat’s new anti-monopoly platform. Thoughts on the podcast?
