In this special extended episode, Anthony joins Bill Browder, founder and CEO of Hermitage Capital Management, head of the Global Magnitsky Justice Campaign and the best-selling author of Red Notice and Freezing Order

Together they discuss Bill’s career path, from being the largest foreign investor in Russia to a declared “threat to national security” for exposing corruption in Russian state-owned companies. They delve into the story behind his associate, tax lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, who was imprisoned, and eventually killed in detention in 2009 after attempting to expose a plot to extort $230 million worth of Russian tax money. Bill discusses the story of Magnitsky’s arrest, imprisonment, torture and death, and how he has made it his “exclusive mission” to get justice for Sergei and his family. 

His latest book, Freezing Order: A True Story of Russian Money Laundering, Murder, and Surviving Vladimir Putin’s Wrath, follows the money all the way to the top of Russia’s murderous kleptocracy. Bill provides a personal account of the threats he has faced over the last 15 years and gives an insight into Putin’s Russia, explaining why ​​even the most powerful regimes have weak points.
