It was huge news when Carlos Ghosn, the once-celebrated auto executive, vanished from Japan in 2019 after being charged with financial crimes. He later emerged in Beirut, where he’s lived ever since, beyond the reach of Japanese authorities. Now the American father and son team who helped carry out his spy-novel escape are coming forward. They served time in a Japanese prison and are hoping Ghosn will help them pay off millions of dollars in legal bills.
Bloomberg journalists Reed Stevenson and Brian Bremner join this episode to tell the story of what Ghosn’s escape cost the men—and the very different lives they, and Ghosn, live today.
