5 episodes

To Catch A Hacker is an audio series about cybercrime, what really happens, how we find the people behind the crimes, and how they are brought to justice. Each season follows the story of a cybercrime and tracks the case until it is solved. But these cases are the success stories. We know one in four American households are victimized by cybercrime. Most never report what happened to the police. Of the tiny fraction that ARE reported, only 3 in 1000 incidents ever see an arrest. This makes cybercrime the most prevalent form of crime in America, with the lowest enforcement rate. In looking at the solved cases, we’ll see where we’re falling short in addressing the realities of cybercrime and why catching the cyber criminal is so rare.
Host Mieke Eoyang is the former Senior Vice President for Third Way's National Security Program. She's committed to closing the credibility gap between Democrats and Republicans on security issues and crafting a national security strategy that is both tough and smart. Mieke has worked on every major national security issue—from foreign policy to cybercrime to impeachment—while still making time to mentor the next generation of women in national security.

    Goat Rodeo Presents: Long Shadow

    Goat Rodeo Presents: Long Shadow

    From Goat Rodeo, Long Lead, & Garrett Graff:
    Many Americans watched the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001 unfold right before our eyes. What happened on 9/11 and how it changed our world is the most important story of the modern age. It’s the hinge on which so much changed. But in the years since the history we've come to tell of that day is incomplete—and sometimes wrong.
    Hosted by journalist Garrett Graff, author of the bestselling book THE ONLY PLANE IN THE SKY: AN ORAL HISTORY OF 9/11, "Long Shadow" examines the questions that linger two decades later and the enduring mysteries that still surround 9/11, the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil. This is a different history of September 11th than you likely remember. But it’s one that will help you make sense of the world the attacks left behind.

    The Inauguration Hack, Part 3: The Arrest

    The true culprits behind the hacking of the 2017 presidential inauguration have been identified by authorities, but they won’t know that until nearly a year later. For years, these criminals allegedly stole money here and there from people who never noticed, cared, or reported it. Now, they've poked the bear that's going to strike back. In 2018, they arrive at the international airport in Bucharest, Romania to catch a flight to London...but they never make it onto the plane.

    Trailer: To Catch A Hacker

    Trailer: To Catch A Hacker

    The real world of crime is less likely to be in our neighborhoods but on the internet. It moves at speeds faster than any getaway car or smash and grab. It is millions of break-in attempts in a minute. It is the same brick that is thrown through thousands of windows with a single click. And largely, we are unprepared to do anything about it. Coming January 5th 2021.

Mieke is super brilliant and talented

It’s always charming to come across a particularly thought-provoking guest on a podcast - I’ve been a fan of Mieke’s guest spots on trumpcast and Lawfare and deep state radio - but her talents in national security, cyber security and narrative story telling are awesomely knit together in this new amazing podcast. I’m fairly addicted after just binging the first two episodes. I gave up true crime type serials years ago (just too heavy and too dark) but to catch a hacker is all the intrigue of a crime mystery, cat-and-mouse style, international “whodunnit” without the scary (scarier) stuff. Def recommended.

Can’t wait for the next episode!

Just listened to the first episode, and I’m riveted! Can’t wait for more. This is a great combination of true crime and Designated Survivor. A compelling and true national security narrative. Super excited for the whole series!
