On July 25th, 2020, The MV WAKASHIO ploughed into the coral reefs off the island nation of Mauritius and began leaking oil into the Indian Ocean.

As a result of both the spill and the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, many Mauritians were jobless and directly defied government orders by beginning to clean the coastline themselves in order to survive financially and save their ocean.

The oil spill occurred near popular tourist beaches but also near two environmentally protected areas, endangering coral and marine life. The spill poses great economic and ecological implications for the island, and many fear it will take decades to recover.

With millions of Californians back under strict stay-at-home orders until at least the end of the holiday season, another very real threat looms large for residents seeking refuge from Covid-19 indoors: earthquakes and infrastructure. The majority of Californians live within 30 miles of an active fault line. And while the states seismic activity is nothing new, it’s estimated that only 20% of its residents have earthquake insurance.

Following outcry from housing activists in recent years, Los Angeles has begun releasing records of its most at-risk structures revealing that some fifteen thousand buildings are prone vulnerable to collapse in a major earthquake. As construction crews around Los Angeles work towards a 2022 deadline to retrofit soft-story structures, missed deadlines means more residents building owners are left exposed. Despite Los Angeles now having the nation’s strongest earthquake safety laws, many fear that progress won’t come soon enough.

In Episode 2 of Guo Knows: The Broidy Connection, we receive an election day legal letter from a powerful law firm in Washington D.C. The threats are in response to our inquiries about documents related to former RNC deputy finance co-chair, defense contractor, and recently indicted figure caught up in the 1MDB foreign-influence scandal Elliott Broidy, in particular his relation to Guo Wengui and what appear to be ITAR-required munitions deals for armored vehicles to Nigeria. Finally, we head to Colorado’s Ascendence International to pursue the cold, hard truth.

In our premiere episode of SCNR Investigates, we set up the stakes surrounding the seemingly omnipresent Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui. From yacht time with Steve Bannon to stogies with Rudy Giuliani and what seem like near-constant online flame wars with the Chinese Communist Party’s elite, Guo is a busy man with a complicated plan that no on can seemingly wrap their heads around. Is Guo the firebrand dissident he claims to be, or is he secretly working for the CCP? Did he develop a cryptocurrency with as-yet unknown parties against which he committed securities fraud through his GTV app? How does his existence intertwine with the 1MDB scandal? Watch and find out. (Editorial note: Requests for comment from Guo Wengui, Apple, and Stripe went unanswered as of air time.)

In this episode of DISTANCE, we sit down with legendary explorer, journalist, filmmaker and author Robert Young Pelton. Perhaps most well known for his seminal New York Times’ best-selling tome, The World’s Most Dangerous Places, which explores in great detail some of the most perilous and life-threatening situations you’ll ever read about, taking places in hands down some of the worst hellholes the world has ever known.

Three decades later, Pelton’s expansive career has been made by thrusting himself into arguably more deadly and dangerous situations than anyone else in modern history — all with the goal of understanding what drives humanity’s unrelenting desire for war and power by his ability to somehow enter the frontlines of conflicts and speak to the brutal men running the show using methods that we can only chalk up to some strange, conflict-hardened magic he has singularly developed. Pelton has bared witness to some of the most pivotal — and bone-chillingly terrifying — moments in modern history, stretching across almost every continent, including: the battle of Qala-I-Jangi in Afghanistan, the siege of Grozny in Chechnya, living with LURD rebels in Liberia, the MILF in the Philippines, the Colombian FARC, the Taliban, al Qaeda members and most recently in Sirte, Libya inside the battle against ISIS and the first person to document the White Army amid the chaos of the South Sudanese Civil War.

Yet, Pelton says, the extreme dangers he’s faced during those experiences pale in comparison to the COVID-19 pandemic’s potential for long-term death and devastation. He resides in San Diego where he also designs survival tools for his company DPx Gear and is the holder of over two dozen patents.
