When Tony Hathaway was arrested outside a Seattle bank in February 2014, it brought an end to one of the most prolific bank robbery streaks in American history. Hathaway robbed 30 banks in a single year, all within a 30-mile radius of his suburban home. But that’s not the most surprising part of this story. Before Hathaway was a masterful bank robber—a shape-shifting professional who confounded multiple police departments and the FBI—he was a top design engineer at Boeing, one of America’s most important companies. Hathaway traveled the world in business class, working on the 747, while hiding a gigantic secret: an OxyContin addiction that ultimately unraveled his life. Based on three years of conversations between Hathaway and journalist Josh Dean, Hooked is a different kind of crime story that takes listeners on an exceptional and very personal tour of America’s opioid epidemic.

Been there

I was prescribed too many opioids for years. My last high ended up with me slicing my throat and only missed the carotid be 1mm. I was life flighted by helicopter. I should have died. That was in 2018. It all started in 2004.
I loved this show. It brought back so many memories. I'm better now. It's sad this happened to so many people.

Great spend on addiction but not recovery

Interesting podcast at first... but as it went on further the lead character was so extremely self-centered did not acknowledge he went to alcohol rehab when he was a teenager and was an alcoholic… before he was prescribed painkillers/OXY..... And then he further denied any responsibility to the terrorism and the PTSD that he caused to over 30 bank employees.If not many more in all the robberies.... unfortunately Josh seem to be drawn into being an enabler… And did not let the characters acknowledge the damage they had done… And taking responsibility for it… I almost stopped listening when I they were drinking a fifth of whisky a week .....Definitely not the poster child of recovery… would've been nice if hard-core recovery people could've helped him with his story or his spin......Hopefully most addicts and alcoholics will listen to it for what it is sensationalism... not recovery… I wish the both of them the very best… But it was sad how enabled they were throughout the whole podcast.. great spin on victimhood without accepting responsibility

Mixed emotions but repetitive and slow

I didn't finish this podcast because I got bored with it.
Positive points: I was able to sympathize more with people who become addicted to Oxycontin and then heroin.
Negative points: the point of the story changes so many times so I can't tell you what the podcast is about.
Voice of the host sounds like he doesn't care.
They repeat the same things many times
I think that the character has to take more responsibility about what happened
