In the first half, George Knapp welcomed investigative author Cheri Seymour for a discussion about the Octopus, a globe-trotting undercover intelligence operation involved in narcotics trafficking, money laundering, & arms sales. Picking up on the work of journalist Danny Casolaro (who died of a supposed "suicide" in 1991 in the midst of his investigation of the Octopus), she traced a labyrinth of crime that went all the way up to the US Dept. of Justice, and included a maze of politicians and officials in the National Security Council, the CIA, & the FBI.

She outlined how the theft of PROMIS software was used as a cover for international money laundering and other criminal activities by officials in the Reagan presidential administration. Seymour noted that in Dan Moldea's 1986 book Dark Victory: Ronald Reagan, MCA, and The Mob, MCA is referred to as the Octopus, and she suspects that is where Casolaro obtained the name for the larger organization.
