Listen: ‘Secrecy World’ is the true story of an international scandal that may soon be a movie

TOPSHOT - A photo taken on April 7, 2016 in Munich, southern Germany, at the office of the German daily "Sueddeutsche Zeitung" shows several issues of the newspaper dated April 4, 2016, titling on the socalled "Panama Papers" with illustrations by German artist Peter M Hoffmann depicting heads of state. The Panama Papers are a massive leak of 11.5 million documents allegedly exposing the secret offshore dealings of aides to Russian president Vladimir Putin, world leaders and celebrities including Barcelona striker Lionel Messi. The vast stash of records was obtained from an anonymous source by German daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung and shared with media worldwide by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ). / AFP / CHRISTOF STACHE / RESTRICTED TO EDITORIAL USE - MANDATORY MENTION OF THE ARTIST UPON PUBLICATION - TO ILLUSTRATE THE EVENT AS SPECIFIED IN THE CAPTION (Photo credit should read CHRISTOF STACHE/AFP/Getty Images)

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of “Secrecy World” Jake Bernstein shared the story behind his coverage of the Panama Papers on today’s show.

Bernstein broke the story delving into the confidential documents of a Panamanian law firm called Mossack Fonseca, a huge provider for offshore shell companies from around the world. The story was an international scandal, launching government inquiries and prosecutions in more than a dozen countries.

“Secrecy World” has been optioned for an upcoming movie, so the story about 11 million documents being leaked could be coming to theaters in the near future.
