So far so good. It seems like it's missing some things, and it definitely feels like it has a bit of an agenda. But it's a good listen

Description

We now know that Jeffrey Epstein was a sexual predator. He was also accused of fraud, embezzlement, coercion and more. But for most of his life, he was a mystery to the public, and to many of the people who knew him. In this six part series, we peel back the layers of Epstein’s life to detail his financial and sexual crimes, and his network of enablers, with original reporting and interviews. From humble beginnings, Epstein came to amass significant wealth which he used to buy sex, social status, silence, even justice —until money wasn’t enough. From Wondery (“Dirty John”, “The Shrink Next Door”), and hosted by Lindsay Graham (“American Scandal”).

Introducing: Whistleblower
00:09:44

In 2007, NBA referee Tim Donaghy was arrested for betting on games he officiated. It was the biggest scandal in American sports history, but it quickly faded from the headlines. Why? Because everyone in this scandal has something to hide. This isn't a story about basketball - it's a story about money, and a conspiracy that spans far beyond one referee. Sports journalist Tim Livingston takes you inside his eight-year odyssey to find the truth at the heart of the scandal.

Update: What Is Ghislaine Maxwell Hiding? | 8
00:28:47

July 2019. Jeffrey Epstein is arrested. His alleged accomplice, Ghislaine Maxwell, disappears. And the rumor mill goes berserk. Maybe she’s living on a submarine deep beneath the sea. Maybe she’s in Israel under the protection of the Mossad. Or maybe she’s strolling through Paris, a blanket draped over her head. Those theories were put to rest last week when the FBI raided a 156-acre compound in rural New Hampshire and took Ghislaine into custody. And yet, so many questions remain. Here to answer some of them is Mark Seal. He’s a special correspondent for Vanity Fair and has been following Ghislaine’s story for months. The result is a blockbuster story called “Inside Ghislaine’s Life on the Lam,” which will appear in the August issue of Vanity Fair and is available online now.

Introducing Truth and Lies: Jeffrey Epstein | 8
00:07:14

More than a decade ago, mysterious financier Jeffrey Epstein was investigated by local and federal authorities in Florida for allegedly sexually abusing dozens of teenage girls. But despite what appeared to be overwhelming evidence of a horrifying pattern of abuse, Epstein managed to escape all but minor charges, striking a sweetheart deal with the government that required him to spend just 13 months in jail while granting him and his alleged co-conspirators immunity from federal prosecution. Years later, in the wake of Epstein's sudden arrest and shocking demise, those teenage girls – now women – are still seeking answers to their fundamental questions about their abuser and his allies. In dozens of interviews, ABC News' Mark Remillard, reporting with the ABC News Investigative Unit, shares the stories of those women, who have fought to have their voices heard, as well as the lawyers and investigators who tried to bring Epstein to justice. And ABC retraces Epstein's rise from modest roots to the very intersection of wealth and power, seeking to uncover the forces that shielded Epstein from justice.
