The Mysterious Mr. Epstein

A Society, Culture and News podcast featuring
 11 people rated this podcast
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”).

Horrible topic that you just can't tear yourself away from. It's really disturbing to learn how Epstein was able to do what he did for so long while others turned a blind eye - or even participated! I understand where, if you already know a lot of about the topic, then there may not be a whole lot added in this podcast, but as someone who really didn't know all the details it was a very useful listen.
This podcast was not better than the Miami Herald reporting that it draws from. Draws *heavily* from. As in, did not add anything to. In fact, this whole podcast felt (to me) like plagiarism. Wondery didn't seem to do any original journalism, and didn't really credit the journalists who did the work, interviewed the sources, and brought this story into public awareness. It's nice to have the whole story together -- though it would have been nicer if the story were given more structure. And less ads!
This is a long and complicated story. Telling it in a circular style is nauseating. Too many facts and factors to keep track. Writer is too close to the topic to tell a coherent story. Crime Junkies need to do this one. Beginning-Middle-End.=Yay!
