In this week’s podcast, Chavkin breaks down the $20 billion BP claims process, discusses the experiences of some Gulf-region claimants and explains we how are reaching out to readers to help measure the effectiveness of the claims process.
Chavkin is working with ProPublica’s director of online engagement, Amanda Michel, to develop the project. If you are in the Gulf and are filing a claim with BP ProPublica wants to hear from you. Tell us your experience with the BP claims process here.
