Podcasts

Investigators talk to us about their personal experiences with exposing the invisible. These are their voices.

Exposing the Invisible Podcast Series

Welcome to Exposing the Invisible's podcast. In this first series, we interviewed experienced investigators to get insights into what drives them and to understand some of the methods they use in their investigations. Listen to their candid and inspiring responses and hear about the communities they work with and what motivates them to keep going. This podcast series was produced by Tactical Tech with funding from the European Commission.
