Buried Treasure: The story of Warren Meddoff

With over twenty years of reporting together, Michael Isikoff and Dan Klaidman have plenty of stories about old scandals lost to history and great anecdotes from their past. In this week’s premiere episode of Skullduggery’s Buried Treasure, Isikoff and Klaidman head back to the '90s and delve into the story of a man named Warren Meddoff, his role in the 1996 Clinton campaign finance scandal and the personal connection to one of the hosts.

Skullduggery

Skullduggery is a new podcast from Yahoo News focused on Washington scandals in the Trump era and their impact on today’s politics. Conceived and co-hosted by Yahoo News’s Chief Investigative Correspondent Michael Isikoff and Editor in Chief Daniel Klaidman, the podcast offers a deep dive into the high-stakes investigation into Russia’s effort to subvert the 2016 election and allegations of collusion by the Donald Trump presidential campaign. Every Friday, Skullduggery will break down the latest revelations in the Russia scandal, offering authoritative analysis while helping listeners discern which developments really matter and which are overblown. 

Isikoff and Klaidman won’t just be recapping the latest news on the Russia investigation, they’ll be breaking it too– just as they have since the earliest days of the 2016 election. Skullduggery will feature Yahoo News’ own exclusive reporting – as well as newsmaking interviews – making it a unique offering among political podcasts. Isikoff and Klaidman will provide historical context, offer insights and exchange old war stories to illuminate today’s probes and controversies. It will be substantive but personality driven, informal yet authoritative, feeding off the personal chemistry between two veteran reporters who have been friends and colleagues for more than twenty years.
