Two Fantasy Sports Companies Engulfed In Scandal03:50

This article is more than 3 years old.

Two major, rival fantasy sports companies—FanDuel and DraftKings—are barring their employees from betting on fantasy games, amid allegations of insider trading.

This comes after an employee at DraftKings admitted to accidentally releasing valuable data, such as what players the majority of participants were betting on, ahead of the third week of N.F.L games. That employee won $350,000 at rival site, FanDuel, the same week.

Here & Now's Meghna Chakrabarti speaks with WBUR's Curt Nickisch about how the scandal is raising questions about the unregulated industry.
