Earlier this week a set of documents that have been dubbed “The Panama Papers” were leaked online. More than a year ago, an unnamed source gave the files to the German newspaper, Süddeutsche Zeitung. The data are part of a set of files taken from the Panamanian law firm, Mossack Fonseca. In this week’s episode of Beer & Bros, Lyle and Dan discuss the leak, offshore banking, and the perception of security. Listen to the show and see what you think.
