Riveting!

Binged the podcast. Fascinating insight into insider trading and an interesting reflection on the cost of crime and societies ability to allow those who have served their time re-enter the community.

Intriguing story all the way through

This was such a brilliant podcast series. Great story, lessons and access to key people in interviews. Access all areas pass. Even my kids loved listening to it.

Great listen

Great story, told so well with lots of angles and experts but not hard to follow along with at all! Very interesting to get to know the individuals so well and watch their stories develop. Would recommend for anyone after an interesting listen!!
