Hot Money (Various Seasons)

4.8/5

Critic Rating

Hot Money is back. In this series, Financial Times reporter Miles Johnson investigates a mysterious murder in a small town that leads to a web of drugs, money laundering and state-sponsored assassinations stretching from Dublin to Dubai. At the centre is a cocaine super cartel that is revolutionising the global drugs market. This eight-part investigative podcast, published twice-weekly, probes the links between criminals and legitimate businesses, and between governments and gangsters.

Hannah Verdier • The Guardian Nov 2, 2023

"(Season 2) Hot Money is back and about to get dirtier with a deep dive into cocaine. The starting point is a Dubai wedding where drug barons who service Europe are gathered, and no stone is left unturned in following their trail."

Nick Hilton • Nick Hilton Blog Jul 8, 2022

"...this is a fascinating look at the intersections of economics, finance, sociology and behavioural psychology...It is, I should say, less good than Jon Ronson’s canonical Butterfly Effect podcast that tackles many of the same issues with less of an eye on the money (and also less good than the New York Times’ Rabbit Hole, which, equally, tackled some of the same issues). But it’s still very good."

"Hot Money is giving us a rich investigation into the secret history of the adult business and the billionaires and financial institutions who shape it."
