About the show

When Vice editor “Slava P” reached out to young journalists with job offers, they thought it was about freelance writing. Instead, he asked them to smuggle nearly $20 million worth of cocaine into Australia.

Cool Mules is a six-part podcast series, hosted by Kasia Mychajlowycz, investigating the cocaine-smuggling ring inside Vice Media.

Series launch: March 2, 2020. New episodes every Monday.
