Gripping tale if insider trading

Well researched and presented. I could hardly wait for the next episode. Well done and I’ll be on the lookout for more fin review podcasts

Great podcast & story

Great job! Really enjoyable and well done. Great host

Good story, very dull delivery

I thought the story was amazing, but we know pretty much all of the details of the crime in episode one. There was zero suspense and no reveal. The twist was not what I would describe as a plot twist… Not exactly a surprising revelation. I limped to the end of this series. Sorry folks.
