8 episodes

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.

New Episodes on Wednesdays.

Compelling story-extraordinarily well-done

Just finished binging this. Was “Hooked” and did not want to stop listening. A story many of us faced as Sackler family plied their drug trade.

Interesting and well presented

Love the podcast, what a devastating situation for this family and so many others though. Easy to follow, thank you!

Episodes too short for the wait

I really think this could have been wrapped up in five 60 minute episodes. Why drag it out (and your viewers’ patience) over 9 episodes? This will probably be my last Apple podcast that I’ll follow.
