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”).

    Update: What Is Ghislaine Maxwell Hiding?

    Update: What Is Ghislaine Maxwell Hiding?

    July 2019. Jeffrey Epstein is arrested. His alleged accomplice, Ghislaine Maxwell, disappears. And the rumor mill goes berserk. Maybe she’s living on a submarine deep beneath the sea. Maybe she’s in Israel under the protection of the Mossad. Or maybe she’s strolling through Paris, a blanket draped over her head. Those theories were put to rest last week when the FBI raided a 156-acre compound in rural New Hampshire and took Ghislaine into custody. And yet, so many questions remain. Here to answer some of them is Mark Seal. He’s a special correspondent for Vanity Fair and has been following Ghislaine’s story for months. The result is a blockbuster story called “Inside Ghislaine’s Life on the Lam,” which will appear in the August issue of Vanity Fair and is available online now.

Great podcast!

The mysterious Mr Epstein is a very appropriate title. There are many theories on how he made his millions/ billions but there is no clean cut story. I like that this podcast investigates his background. Providing a more complex story, compared to current documentaries that just feature the victims account. It becomes very repetitive.
