A compelling cast of sources—from brave whistleblowers to shadowy undercover operatives—decided the fate of these investigations, sometimes risking everything in the process.

McHugh didn’t expect that the assignment would lead to him witnessing what he believes to be a historic example of a major news outlet killing a story—when executives ordered him and Farrow to stand down. Now, McHugh tells a new part of his story, about what happened when Farro...

But those hours of dodging and weaving to escape Weinstein’s advances—and the threat he'd discover the wire she was wearing—would turn out to be just the beginning of a multi-year sag...

In this episode, we look at the small but dogged community of journalists who spent years trying to break the story open, including two who got tantalizingly close, The New Yorker's Ken Auletta and The H...

"If you want to spend time with me, whatever, I will mentor you, teach you, whatever.

In our final episode, we go inside the case that ultimately brought Donald Trump’s alliance with the National Enquirer tumbling down and landed one Trump associate behind bars. It’s the story of an historic scheme to swing a presidential race—one that starts at the Playboy Mansion and ends with a master list of Trump dirt, a safe full of secrets, and a shredding party at the Enquirer’s headquarters before the election. But it’s als...

On Monday, Harvey Weinstein was found guilty of sex crimes and taken into police custody. He faces up to 29 years in jail. Just hours after the jury announced its verdict, Ronan Farrow sat down with the actress Rose McGowan, the first woman to go on camera as Farrow reported on Weinstein, to reflect on the verdict and her long, strange journey to it—through Hollywood sexism, media executives willing to shut down her story, and hire...

Ronan has a recommendation for a new podcast to try. It’s 1990. The Berlin Wall just fell. The Soviet Union is on the verge of collapse. And the soundtrack to the revolution is one of the best selling songs of all time, the metal ballad “Wind of Change,” by the Scorpions.
