RATING
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!
Bingeing this in a straight shot was the only way to maybe get some sense of the narrative. It was overly dramatic and I was disappointed at the choice of 1st person POV scenes. Also surprising was despite the ample budget needed for soundscaping, Graham voices the all the characters even in dialogues with 3 speakers simultaneously!?! Minus a star for the ads read in the same voice and inserted into the story. 2/5 pedophiles
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!
