Publisher's Summary

Free for a limited time. Ponzi Supernova is an original audio series that profiles Bernie Madoff, the Wall Street financier sent to prison for orchestrating the largest Ponzi scheme in history. The series, hosted by journalist Steve Fishman, includes hours of unheard conversations with Madoff behind bars, as well as interviews with law enforcement and the victims.
In a review, Lulu Miller, of NPR’s Invisibila, wrote: “At times alluring, at times disgusting, it’s the push and pull that makes the magic of this series. You experience nonconsensual bouts of empathy for Bernie, and moments later find yourself repulsed by his seeming lack of remorse for his victims, not just their financial ruin, but even their deaths. This is a needed listen for anyone curious about what actually went down, and anyone hopeful of sparing ourselves from another implosion in the future."
Ponzi Supernova is a premium Audible Original series. Every day, millions of listeners enjoy true life stories, must-hear audio documentaries and fearless comedy. Available free to Audible members and Amazon Prime members by tapping Channels in the Audible App.

Good story terrible soundtrack

Interesting story. Cool to hear the recordings from the conversations with Madoff. The weird background music made sections of it impossible for me to listen to at times and I had to fast forward. The end space/drama music is unnecessary and really detracts from the overall experience. The writer is annoying and pretentious with too much time given to his own self-possession but the access to Madoff and the questions he poses are great. I would love to hear more free offerings like this from Audible. It makes me feel my subscription is worth it.
