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.

Its just okay

Started out pretty good with the back story but not much investigation into Epstien. By the final episode it turned into a liberal rant about how bad the prison system is, blaming the Federal prison system for Epsein's suicid and with almost nothing interesting about Epsein's case itself.

Broken....the story of Julie Browns voice

Punishment for Epstein should of been having to listen to Julie k. Brown’s voice. I couldn’t make it through an episode that she was in without my ears bleeding. Horrible. Unlistenable

Fortified with knowledge ,

A well done series

I listen to all five episodes and found them to be very informative. The cadence of the interviews and narrative made it easy to understand while going deep into the story. In Episode 3, I found Adam Davidson’s (a veteran economic journalist from Planet Money) explanation of Jeffrey Epstein’s historical financial dealings and scams to be easy to understand despite the complexity. I thought the series was fairly objective and would highly recommend.
