Fat Leonard: A Tale Of Corruption and Revenge

In 2015, Penang-born Leonard Francis pleaded guilty to defrauding the US Navy's Pacific Seventh Fleet of almost US$35 million. For the first time since his conviction, Leonard Francis has broken his silence by speaking to journalist Tom Wright providing details on the extent of bribery and corruption in his dealings with the US Navy. Leonard is the subject of Tom Wright's latest project with his new media outlet Project Brazen, a nine-part podcast series titled Fat Leonard. We speak to him about the main character of the podcast and future projects under Project Brazen.
