  • Walk the Plank
    How do you capture a pirate after they’ve hijacked a ship? In today’s episode, we look at two ingenious sting operations that managed to lure some pirates across borders to their arrest. And in the process, we’ll see how clever law enforcement agencies get around the problem of tracking down criminals across international borders.   You can support our work here: Patreon.com/powercorrupts   And you can pre-order Brian’s new book, Corruptible: Who Gets Power and How It Changes Us, here (or wherever you buy books):  https://www.simonandschuster.com/books/Corruptible/Brian-Klaas/9781982154097   Follow us on social media:    Twitter - twitter.com/powrcorrupts Instagram - instagram.com/powercorruptspodcast

  • The Invisible Hook
    Pirates can teach us quite a lot about democracy and economics. What can Blackbeard teach us about signaling theory? Why were pirates racially progressive for their era? And is it possible that pirate ships were laboratories for experiments with constitutional democracy?    In this episode, we speak to Professor Peter Leeson of George Mason University, and Dr. Rebecca Simon, an expert on pirate history. You can get Professor Peter's book, The Invisible Hook at https://www.amazon.com/Invisible-Hook-Hidden-Economics-Pirates/dp/0691150095   You can support our work here: Patreon.com/powercorrupts   And you can pre-order Brian’s new book, Corruptible: Who Gets Power and How It Changes Us, here (or wherever you buy books):  https://www.simonandschuster.com/books/Corruptible/Brian-Klaas/9781982154097   Follow us on social media:  Twitter - twitter.com/powrcorrupts Instagram - instagram.com/powercorruptspodcast

  • Golden Handcuffs
    Can doing the wrong thing ever be the right policy? That’s a question we’ll tackle this week as we look at the possibility of letting some very bad people get away with their crimes…in order to prevent them from causing further damage. From drug kingpins to dictators, is it ever a good idea to just let them get away with it?    This week’s episode features journalist Jaime Yaya Berry; human rights advocate Tutu Alicante; former Ambassador Charles Stith; and journalist Ioan Grillo.    You can support our work here: Patreon.com/powercorrupts   And you can pre-order Brian’s new book, Corruptible: Who Gets Power and How It Changes Us, here (or wherever you buy books):  https://www.simonandschuster.com/books/Corruptible/Brian-Klaas/9781982154097

  • Hitman for Hire
    What if you hacked a hitman-for-hire website and found out the identities of people who were slated to die before the murder? How much does it cost to hire a hitman on the Dark Web? And what if all of these supposed hitmen were just part of a giant, lucrative hoax?   In this episode, we explore the stranger-than-fiction tale of hitmen services being sold on the darkest corners of the internet.   Guests include Gian Volpicelli of Wired UK; Eileen Ormsby, a journalist and author; and Randy McAlister of the Cottage Grove, Minnesota police department.   Support our work here: patreon.com/powercorrupts   And buy Brian's new book, Corruptible: Who Gets Power and How It Changes Us here: https://www.simonandschuster.com/books/Corruptible/Brian-Klaas/9781982154097

  • Fake IDs
    Could you fake your death and get away with it? In this episode, we look at fake identities, from people who've tried to fake their own deaths to an audacious wine fraudster who made millions as he sold new wine in old bottles.   We speak to a private investigator who proves that people are, in fact alive, and a wine merchant who decided to act like an FBI agent in his quest to stake out a man who was making fake bottles of his wine. And in the process, we see glimpses of how identities are harder to forge in the 21st century.   Guests in this episode: Steven Rambam, private investigator; Laurent Ponsot, master winemaker; Peter Hellman, author of In Vino Duplicitas; and two eminent historians, Helen Watt and Paul Dryburgh.   Support our work here: patreon.com/powercorrupts   And buy Brian's new book, Corruptible: Who Gets Power and How It Changes Us here: https://www.simonandschuster.com/books/Corruptible/Brian-Klaas/9781982154097
