Get ready for Sunday night's Oscars by listening to Brooke's conversation with Walter Robinson, who headed the investigation and is played by Michael Keaton in the film, and Sacha Pfeiffer, who was one of the four reporters on the team and is played by Rachel McAdams. They talk about what it was like to see themselves on the silver screen, and the continuing impact of their award-winning reporting.
