On this edition of Your Call’s Media Roundtable, we're marking the 5th anniversary of the Panama Papers. In 2016, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and more than 100 media partners around the globe began publishing an investigation exposing the secrets of the offshore finance industry and how it enabled corrupt politicians and the rich to hide their money and evade paying taxes. Half a decade later, what has changed as the result of the Panama Papers’ revelations?

Guests:

Emilia Díaz-Struck, research editor and Latin American coordinator at the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists

Kevin Hall, chief economics correspondent and senior investigator at McClatchy Newspapers

Mike Elk, labor reporter and co-founder of Payday Report
