Jerri Williams | Retired FBI Agent, Author + Podcaster

DIE-ALOGUE: a true crime conversation

We continue to celebrate Women’s History Month with a woman who I am truly honored to meet - a leader in her field, and fellow podcaster. Retired FBI agent, Jerri Williams, entered the FBI in 1982, one of very few women, and even fewer women of color. Jerri specialized in white collar crime and was later given the role of media spokesperson for the FBI. In her retirement, she parlayed her experience as an agent and a media professional, by writing books and starting a podcast, based on her experience in the bureau. Her podcast, FBI Retired Case File Review, can be found here: https://apple.co/38K1DvNHer books, including the super fun FBI word search, which I have, can be found here:https://jerriwilliams.com/books/Today’s show was sponsored by AWAY Travel, learn more at: https://bit.ly/3qT3ogFDIE-ALOGUE is sponsored in part by She’s Birdie – the stylish and effective, personal safety alarms that I honestly don’t leave home without!

During most of her Bureau career, she worked major economic fraud investigations and was amazed at the schemes con-artist and corrupt corporate and public officials would devise to steal other people’s money. She has also had the opportunity to work bank robberies and drug investigations. The one thing she knows for sure is, “With a gun, you can steal hundreds. With a pen, you can steal millions.” Jerri is on a mission to show the public who the FBI is and what the FBI does through her books, podcast, and blog. Using her prior professional experiences with scams and schemers, the novels in her FBI Philadelphia Corruption Squad series – Pay To Play and Greedy Givers – feature a strong but flawed female FBI agent protagonist with a troubled past. In her non-fiction book FBI Myths and Misconceptions: A Manual for Armchair Detectives, she discusses the top 20 clichés and misconceptions about the FBI in books, TV, and movies, and provides a reality check regarding FBI procedures. Throughout the fun and fact-filled book, she includes quotes from retired agents about how the FBI really works and reviews popular films and fiction featuring FBI characters.
