Ponzi Supernova
As Bernie Madoff’s $65 billion dollar Ponzi scheme collapsed and the Wall Street financier went behind bars, he left behind a mystery. Hosted by journalist Steve Fishman, Ponzi Supernova is an original audio series that questions how and why Madoff was able to get away with the largest con in history and who may have helped. Drawn from hours of unheard conversations with Madoff from prison, as well as interviews with law enforcement and victims, the series takes a hard look at what happened while tracing still unfolding effects.

Fascinating but...
The story is very fascinating and has the right tempo however the music, narration, sound quality leave much to be desired. There are points where the conversation is hard to hear over the unnecessary music. If this can be sorted this would be a 5 star listen.
