Ilya Marritz covers business for WNYC and is the host of "The Season."
He was born and raised in Manhattan and lives in Brooklyn. He attended Stuyvesant High School and Wesleyan University, and has also worked as a producer at WNYC's Brian Lehrer Show, a producer at NPR's All Things Considered, a reporter at Radio MultiKulti (sadly now defunct) in Berlin, Germany, and Radio Prague, in the Czech Republic.
NPR follows the trail of a big bribe on the other side of the world until it reaches an unassuming apartment in Manhattan. This offers a glimpse into how money laundering works and why it is especially hard to unravel when dirty money becomes luxury real estate.

stations, broadcasting the finest programs from NPR, PRI and American Public Media, as well as a wide range of award-winning local
