One of the most accomplished journalists, writers, and editorial leads in the podcasting business. With decades in audio journalism, I've made a habit of producing award-winning stories for each of the esteemed media organizations I've been a part of: NPR, Reveal from the Center for Investigative Reporting, and now Al Jazeera. I've won more than one Peabody, duPont Columbia, Robert F. Kennedy, and Edward R. Murrow awards. And while I love covering the globe, I also have a passion for digging deep. Give me a topic, and I'm pretty sure I can show you a different way to think about your world.
My big dream now is to find a new project of my own. I have some ideas up my sleeve. If you're interested in chatting about them - let me know. And if you're working on something in the international arena that would be better with some company, give me a shout too!
In 2016, the Justice Department alleged that Malaysian officials stole billions of dollars from their people and funneled some of it through the United States. Reveal teamed up with Washington D.C.’s public radio station, WAMU, to dig into one of the largest investigations ever by the Justice Department’s Kleptocracy Asset Recovery Initiative. It’s a tale that features cameos from Leonardo DiCaprio, Donald Trump, the world’s largest yacht, a Malaysian playboy known for his lavish spending in New York nightclubs, and – as you might imagine – lots of Champagne.
This is how the story begins...
In the early 1960s, Carsten Ringsmose, Walther Juul Hansen, and Eva Kock Sørensen were part of a small group of idealistic young antinuclear activists living communally in a two-story house in the Danish island town of Odense.
“It was incredible,” Hansen recalled. “Ten, 15 times every month, we had planned things going on – poetry discussions, seminars, speeches from people who came from all over, authors, artists.” The rest is here -> https://revealnews.org/article/the-teachers-group-from-idealistic-commune-to-money-making-machine/
