    Madoff Behind Bar‪s: Inside the mind of the most notorious conman

    Bernie Madoff, the mastermind behind the largest Ponzi scheme in history, died today behind bars at the age of 82. For more than a decade, Madoff — who was locked away serving a 150-year prison sentence — had been the personification of greed. In December 2018, CNBC special correspondent Scott Cohn and American Greed executive producer Chuck Schaeffer went “behind bars” to uncover Madoff, 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 made him tick? (Original release: 12/10/2018)

Boring episode

I love this podcast but the most recent episode about Bernie Madoff was extremely slow and boring. Lots of stammering and monotone conversation.
