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.

wow the story is a deep one

even though this is a short listen it covers a lot of ground and illuminates a little of the insanity behind the giant ponzi scheme

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.

The main reporter was a put off

Awesome story...lots of unanswered questions that could have easily been answered but story went shallow on too many topics. felt that he main reporter/narrator was trying too hard and wasted time reexplaining very simple concepts...prefer the serial/s-town style of reporting - this felt too rehearsed

Great story, really well made.

Loved this little series, I listened to it all in one go because I couldn't wait to hear the next part.
The interviews with Madoff are fascinating especially as it becomes clearer and clearer throughout the episodes that he is still either lying or deluded.
Great listen, I definitely recommend it.
