Are you ready to venture into the shadows? Dirty Deeds: Tales of Global Crime & Corruption is a gripping podcast that delves deep into the realm of investigative journalism, unraveling hidden stories of jaw-dropping fraud and deceit.

Every other week, we'll bring you reporting from some of OCCRP's most important investigations, showcasing the work of our worldwide network of journalists who cross borders — and bad guys — to shine a bright light on some of the world’s most dangerous criminal networks. We’ll travel the globe from the oil fields of Venezuela to the rosewood forests of Namibia to the steppes of Central Asia. And don’t forget the posh London real estate where much of the dirty cash ends up. These are the inside stories of how the powerful, unscrupulous, and well-connected can acquire unimaginable wealth — and of what it takes to expose them.

Dirty Deeds is hosted by award-winning journalist and broadcaster Nick Wallis. Follow OCCRP on X, Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn to get the latest updates.
