Who is Josh Renaud? You might not know his name, but you probably heard his story. Back in Episode 47 (DESE is Messy), we talked about the response from DESE and Missouri Governor Parson when a reporter from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch pointed out a vulnerability on the DESE website; Josh Renaud is that reporter. In this episode, Josh talks candidly about the events that took place, the responses from DESE and Governor Parson, and the fallout. Recently the Highway Patrol lead investigation wrapped up, and the Cole County Prosecuting Attorney declined to press charges against Josh.
We are very appreciative that Josh was willing to join us and speak so openly about the situation.
