Episode 13: The Final Chapter
It was a moment many thought would never come. Three years of fiery political posturing and intense legal wrangling with Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou under threat of extradition to the U.S. and two Canadians facing years of hard labour in Chinese prisons. The last chapter of CBC's award-winning podcast details the breakneck relay of events that brought the case to a conclusion over the course of one extraordinary day in September.

Episode 12: The Two Michaels
The wife of one of two Canadians held in Chinese prisons since Meng Wanzhou's arrest steps out of the shadows to demand political action. A U.S. election looms and Meng Wanzhou's lawyers prepare to turn the spotlight on President Donald Trump's record to claim she's being used as a pawn. And Meng's lawyers throw a new claim of abuse into the mix - arguing that the U.S. misled the court from the start about the basics of the case against her.

Episode 11: Double Criminality
With a key decision looming, Huawei chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou takes a premature victory photo on the Vancouver courthouse steps. Her fate is tied to a California bigamist who tried to escape the law -- and his other wife - by fleeing to B.C. And tensions between morality, law and politics are examined through an 1860 precedent when Canada was asked to return a freed slave to the United States.

Episode 10 - Charm Offensive
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tells the U.S. government not to close a trade deal without settling the question of Meng Wanzhou and the two Canadians accused of spying in China. The CBC's long-planned interview with Meng's father - Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei - falls apart. And despite volumes of answers given to reporters from around the globe, questions still remain about Huawei's role in 5G technology.

Episode 9 - American Trap
Meng Wanzhou goes to court to force the Canadian government to produce the documents her lawyers claim she'll need to prove she's the victim of a conspiracy. An old friend turns up in court with words of support. And Meng's father turns tastemaker with his recommendation of a book by a jailed French executive who claims he was also the victim of an 'American Trap.'
