    Best of Greed: The Most Hated Man in America

    Best of Greed: The Most Hated Man in America

    "Pharma Bro" Martin Shkreli is seeking a temporary release from prison to research a treatment for the coronavirus, claiming the pharmaceutical industry's "response to COVID-19 is inadequate." Shkreli became a household name when he jacked up the price of a lifesaving HIV drug 5,000 percent. This quickly earned the former hedge fund manager, investor and pharmaceutical CEO the title of "The most hated man in America." But as American Greed reported in 2018, it was his shady accounting and internet trolling that landed the "Pharma Bro" in hot water.

    Best of Greed: Madoff Behind Bars

    Best of Greed: Madoff Behind Bars

    This week Bernie Madoff announced that he is dying from kidney disease and asked a judge to grant him an early release. Last July, he asked President Donald Trump to reduce his sentence. For more than a decade, Madoff — locked away from the world as he serves a 150-year prison sentence — has been the face of greed. In December 2018, CNBC special correspondent Scott Cohn and American Greed executive producer Chuck Schaeffer went “behind bars” to uncover the Madoff of today, from the lawyers and investigators to the victims. This episode goes inside the mind of the world’s most notorious con man. Who is Madoff? What makes him tick? (Original release: 12/10/2018)

STACY KEACH OR WE’RE NOT LISTENING!

The episodes “The Promescent Affair 1 & 2” are narrated by an annoying woman who likes to make it seem like the story will keep getting better, IT DOESN'T. The co-host sounds like Art Bell, without the wit & intelligence Art had.
AMERICAN GREED without narration by STACY KEACH IS SACRILEGIOUS and NOT WORTH LISTENING TO!
