The name “Enron” remains synonymous with corporate greed. In late 2001, Enron went bankrupt after using a series of accounting schemes to exaggerate its bottom line. Few at Enron admit they knew what was going on, yet that scheming didn’t happen overnight. This episode explores the rise and fall of Enron, and the story of one Enron employee brave enough to take her concerns straight to the top.
