New York, NY (March 24, 2020)—C13Originals, a division of leading premium podcast company Cadence13, today announced that the second season of Gangster Capitalism—the critically acclaimed documentary podcast franchise that offers an unflinching look at white collar corruption and the dark side of the American dream—will explore the NRA.
Season One of Gangster Capitalism, which has been optioned, focused on the college admissions scandal that has exposed everyone from Hollywood celebrities to Fortune 500 CEOs in an audacious bribery scheme.
Now, in Gangster Capitalism, Season Two, award-winning documentarian Andrew Jenks provides a detailed look into the NRA, tracing key moments and following the money trail of this almost one-hundred-fifty-year old nonprofit organization. Throughout the eight-episode series, Jenks reports from gun shows, conferences, and protests, and listeners will hear from former staffers, members, and lobbyists, as well as everyday Americans.
Gangster Capitalism, Season Two will launch with the first two episodes on March 25, 2020, on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, RADIO.COM and everywhere podcasts are available. New episodes will be available on Wednesdays. Listen to the trailer and subscribe to the series here: http://bit.ly/gangstercap.
