The AICPA presents the Journal of Accountancy podcast. Where we talk about the key issues facing the accounting profession.

Feb 25, 2021

Do you know the name John Wesley Cromwell Jr.? Do you know the specific businesses targeted recently for Paycheck Protection Program loan applications? This express version of the JofA podcast gives you more on those topics, along with details on an accounting alternative related to goodwill impairment that FASB is expected to issue soon.

Cromwell became a CPA 100 years ago, and his story as the first Black CPA is part of a year-long effort to honor, celebrate, and build upon the progress Black CPAs have made in shaping the accounting profession. You’ll also hear the voice of Lester McKeever, CPA, another pioneering Black accountant.

Also, catch up on what a White House statement means in the short term for PPP loan applications. And hear from Mike Cheng, CPA, a member of the AICPA Private Companies Practice Section Technical Issues Committee, on the significance of a recent FASB accounting alternative.
