LATEST EPISODE

To end our first season we look at Nepotism. What’s it like to be the son or daughter of a dictator? Why did one dictator’s son go from a high-flying life playing football in Italy to being shorn like a sheep in the hands of rebels? Why did the cannibal emperor of Bangui murder a woman who claimed to be his long-lost daughter? And in the cutthroat world of politics, is nepotism necessary to survive? We’ll answer those questions across the globe from Equatorial Guinea to Uzbekistan and from Libya to the United States.    Thank you to all who have listened to Series 1 of the podcast. Series 2 arrives January 2020.   ----   Power Corrupts is written and narrated by Brian Klaas. The executive producer and sound editor is George McDonagh.
