Cadence13

"Gangster Capitalism," a new podcast franchise from C13Originals, a division of Cadence13, gives an in depth look at white collar corruption in America. It exposes the ways in which wealthy members of society abuse their power, money and influence in order to get what they want regardless of what might stand in their way. Their actions range from explicitly illegal to blatantly unethical, but every case is bound by a gangster mentality in which rules and laws are minor inconveniences.
