Misha Glenny - McMafia

This event has passed

Misha Glenny is an Award-winning journalist and author, his international bestselling book, McMafia, was recently turned into the hit BBC TV series of the same name.

Described by The Guardian as ‘a world authority on global organised crime.’ Glenny has spent years courageously investigating and reporting on the most dangerous and sophisticated organised crime networks around the world.

Alternately very funny and very frightening, Misha Glenny lifts the lid on global organized crime and its corrupt political networks.

The show is a factual illuminating talk that sheds light on corrupt intelligence agencies and takes the audience on a tour through the dark depths of world capitalism. He explains what’s happening behind the headlines – how Russian gangsters, Latin American cartel leaders, people traffickers and dodgy hedge funders exert their influence on our lives without us realising it and how cyber hackers pose an increasing threat to global security in the 21st century.

This is a rare opportunity to hear a true expert take you into the minds of his underworld subjects and as executive producer and script consultant on the TV series, a chance to discover what it took to bring his extraordinary cast of characters to life on the small screen.

Reviews

‘…it has the seductive power of a conspiracy theory enhanced by the credibility of first-hand reporting.’

Guardian

‘Misha Glenny gives us a masterclass in cybercrime and the dark web — it’s a detailed show,
but never dull.’
