New York, NY – WEBWIRE

Subscribers to The Binge Can Listen to All Episodes, All At Once Starting Today

Sony Music Entertainment today premiered Smoke Screen: Betrayal on the Bayou, the latest season of its hit investigative podcast series that delves into the captivating story of DEA Special Agent Chad Scott and the stunning turn of events that led to his imprisonment. Subscribers to The Binge can listen to all episodes, all at once today.

For almost two decades, Chad Scott ruled the streets just north of New Orleans, diligently working to put drug dealers behind bars while controlling a network of snitches through pressuring people he arrested to serve as informants. However, when one of Chad’s own team members is caught dealing drugs, his life takes an unexpected turn, as his trusted associates betray him and confess everything to the FBI.

Hosted by veteran reporters Jim Mustian (The Associated Press) and Faimon Roberts (The Times-Picayune | The New Orleans Advocate), Betrayal on the Bayou hears Chad Scott break his silence for the first time, speaking out about the case that upended his 17-year DEA career and ultimately led him to the same fate as the countless drug dealers he investigated.

Drawing upon thousands of pages of government records, FBI interrogations, previously undisclosed materials, and exclusive interviews with friends and foes of Chad Scott, including drug dealers, federal agents, prosecutors, defense attorneys, and victims, this season exposes the flawed judgment and questionable tactics employed in the war on drugs. As the investigation unfolds, one central question looms: Is Chad Scott truly the greatest DEA Agent in the South, or is he a criminal?

“Betrayal on the Bayou offers a firsthand look at ashocking story of corruption, misconduct, and, of course, betrayal” said hosts Jim Mustian and Faimon Roberts. “After seven years of reporting on this case, we’re absolutely committed to taking listeners right to the front lines of the drug war.”

Betrayal on the Bayou is executive produced by Jonathan Hirsch and produced by Odelia Rubin. It is edited by Catherine Saint Louis.
