Publisher's Summary

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."

Missing a lot...but still

Hearing madoff's voice is interesting and some of the people who knew what he was doing are heard as well, demonstrating shocking regulatory failure. However there is a gushing by the narrator that is rather sickening. Also the Boston banker who repeatedly tried to get the SEC to investigate madoff is nowhere in evidence--that guy is a really important player. This story needs more time than it gets here, sorta frustrating!
