  • Summary

  • In an explosive investigative series, executive produced by James Patterson, veteran journalist and New York Times best-selling author Vicky Ward chronicles her 19-year quest to uncover what - or who - is behind Jeffrey Epstein’s wealth, influence, and criminality. You’ll hear testimonies from over 20 individuals with ties to Epstein, as well as previously off-the-record transcripts and exclusive conversations with Epstein himself.

    Ward’s journey began in 2002 when she profiled Epstein for Vanity Fair. At the time, she didn’t realize just how close she came to uncovering the financier’s web of secrets, connections, and wealth that enabled his sexual crimes and shielded him from justice for decades. As she investigated further, Ward would unearth ties to a criminal empire of money-laundering, gun-running, and international espionage.

    Amidst all the bold-faced names, the saga repeatedly intertwines with that of a single enigmatic figure: Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s ex-lover, former employee, and alleged co-conspirator. The disgraced heiress, who now awaits trial herself, may hold the key to unlocking the truth behind Epstein.

A self indulgent socialite ramble

Wasted a few hours on this. Expect anything other than a socialite narrating around 20 year old transcripts of interviews and actors recreation 'transcripts' from a profile that reveal nothing and a few so called credible sources speculating.

Sllloooowwww

I was hoping for information and details about these sleazeballs and their associates. However, the long winded and incessant details about third layer bit players is driving me nuts. I am on episode 4 and I think I'm done.

Excellent

So impressed at the depth of information reported in this podcast. Vicky Ward is thorough and her details and time span of Epstein and Maxwell’s time together is excellent. This is a well thought out, produced, and narrated podcast. It goes way beyond the sensational headlines and unwinds the twisted world of these despicable people.

Unrequited mmm hmms

If you have a podcast with a moderator, moderator please stop saying, “mmhmm” after every sentence. It is VERY distracting and lessens the quality of the audio. I couldn’t get past 2 episodes.

Can't believe what I heard.

And the different spelling of Gheslaine, are almost ludicrous. French and English use the same alphabet so it shouldn't be too very difficult. The correct pronunciation is " Gheez-lane". Not " gur " lean. How ignorant! And they expect me to believe this crap? I don't think so.

Very little new facts…

Very little new facts were provided from what has already been reported.

Seems like it was more of a CYA as to why the story was not reported truthfully and the victims shamed and exposed.

I can tell you why, journalist for MSM are not journalists anymore. Nobody will ever believe them again!
