Jeffrey Epstein described himself as “radioactive”, and then he died in prison. But right before that, he was a friend and confidant of many of America’s most powerful politicians, billionaires, and entertainers, some of whom apparently shared a common interest: trafficking underaged girls. In "BROKEN: JEFFREY EPSTEIN" host Ariel Levy (The New Yorker) and Special Correspondent and Executive Producer Julie K. Brown (The Miami Herald) tell the full story of Epstein, his accomplices, and the broken systems that enabled his crimes.

Great! But not perfect

I really enjoyed this podcast as I was curious about Epstein's story but I found I had a lot more questions by the end of it. Although the reporting is extremely detailed in some areas, there is not a lot of detail about his actual crimes. It would be great to know more details of his first arrest, the trial and what specifically led to it. As well as hearing from more victims as it seems every offence and it's circumstances were so varied. It would also be good to hear from people that were close to him, what was he actually like?
It is a great start but I'm keen to hear more.

Superficial

Superficial and lacking any depth. If I had wanted to know about prisons in NY state I would have looked up Wikipedia - final episode had almost zero information on Epstein.

Incredibly interesting

I binged listened to the whole series in one night, very well presented and doesn’t constantly repeat itself like some American crime series. Interviewees all had such an interesting perspective on various elements of his character and how he came to be so prolific. Can’t wait for series 2.
