A Nation for Thieves

English, News, 1 season, 9 episodes, 5 hours, 27 minutes
“Kleptocracy” (noun): “rule by thieves” — a form of corruption that allows the ruling class to accumulate great wealth and power while neglecting the mass of citizens. FBI special agent and all round badass Debra LaPrevotte singlehandedly created the FBI’s first kleptocracy department, exposing leaders whose corruption has fueled war crimes and other atrocities, including the current war in Ukraine. Hosted by actor Justin Shenkarow, “A Nation for Thieves” delves into how Debra recovered over $1 billion dollars of dirty money from the world’s most corrupt leaders. She takes us on her international treasure hunt, retrieving priceless items of art, cars, yachts, and suitcases full of cash. New episodes come out every Tuesday.

Check out the trailer and click here to follow and listen: WHAT IF OUR END WAS REALLY JUST THE BEGINNING? IT’S THE GREATEST MYSTERY OF OUR LIVES THAT NONE OF US WILL SOLVE UNTIL WE DIE. WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE DIE? British journalist and broadcaster Charlie Webster experienced life after death. After completing an exhausting 3000 miles charity cycling challenge from Europe to South America, she became critically ill and spent two weeks on life support in a coma. This is when she had her ‘NDE’—near death experience—she made a miraculous recovery that baffled doctors both in Brazil and the UK. After her close brush with death, she is now determined to open the conversation about the afterlife, and find answers to what she experienced in the moments doctors were trying to save her. In this captivating and inspirational 8-part series, Charlie will act as a detective, piecing together clues to build a bulletproof case as to how to approach death, and how to live in the here and now. She’ll meet with “experiencers” and hear their startling personal encounters with death and the beyond. She’ll also chat with experts - scientific and spiritual opinion leaders —who are using hard science and modern technology to gain never-before seen or heard evidence of the afterlife.  Learn more about your ad choices.
