On this week’s episode, oil workers on foreign-flagged ships don’t have the same protections as workers on American-flagged vessels, leaving many of them vulnerable. Special guest Sara Sneath of Floodlight has the story.

Our guests this week are Lens reporters Nick Chrastil, Michael Isaac Stein, editor Charles Maldonado and Floodlight investigative reporter Sara Sneath.
