In the first episode, Shane Smith travels to Kabul to follow the trail of American money pouring into the Afghan reconstruction—one of the most expensive, fraudulent, and wasteful uses of American tax dollars ever. Then, VICE correspondent Ben Anderson travels to Rio de Janeiro, where the Brazilian government took extreme measures to clean up the city's rampant drugs and crime in advance of the World Cup and Olympics.
