Power Corrupts is the podcast about the hidden, and often nefarious forces that shape our world. Every week, Brian tackles one big theme — election rigging, smuggling, conspiracy theories, assassinations, or the politics of magic & witchcraft, to name a few. Each episode combines weird and wild stories with hard-hitting analysis to help you better understand the world.
"Informative, and often scary: Power Corrupts allows you to better understand the dangers our world is facing — and what to do about it." —Dr. Ulrike Franke, Policy Fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR)
