Introducing Hot Money: The New Narcos

The Financial Times’ award-winning narrative podcast series “Hot Money” is back with a new season and a new investigation. It begins with a mysterious murder in a small town and leads to a cocaine super cartel, and a secret proxy war between democracies and dictatorships.

A middle-aged electrician is murdered in a quiet Amsterdam suburb. The case leads to a web of drugs, money laundering and state-sponsored assassinations that stretches from Dublin to Dubai. At the center is a cocaine super cartel that is revolutionising the global drugs market.

Listen below as Financial Times investigative reporter Miles Johnson exposes the ever-fuzzier line between criminals and legitimate business people and between governments and gangsters.
