Listen to 'Truth and Lies: Jeffrey Epstein' on Apple Podcasts (https://apple.co/2QLK5ph), Spotify (https://spoti.fi/2MUjtS9) or your preferred podcast app. More than a decade ago, mysterious financier Jeffrey Epstein was investigated by local and federal authorities in Florida for allegedly sexually abusing dozens of teenage girls. But despite what appeared to be overwhelming evidence of a horrifying pattern of abuse, Epstein managed to escape all but minor charges, striking a sweetheart deal with the government that required him to spend just 13 months in jail while granting him and his alleged co-conspirators immunity from federal prosecution. Years later, in the wake of Epstein's sudden arrest and shocking demise, those teenage girls - now women - are still seeking answers to their fundamental questions about their abuser and his allies. In dozens of interviews, ABC News' Mark Remillard, reporting with the ABC News Investigative Unit, shares the stories of those women, who have fought to have their voices heard, as well as the lawyers and investigators who tried to bring Epstein to justice. And we retrace Epstein's rise from modest roots to the very intersection of wealth and power, seeking to uncover the forces that shielded Epstein from justice.

Brad.... great piece as always. but what's the deal with giving that conspiracy theorists' book an advertising shout out?! By telling your audience the title I assume the Google hits have soared 🤦🏼‍♀️

I really enjoy the show for multiple different reasons such as to keep with the crazies of the world and America. I feel it is important to let you know something went wrong with today's recording I couldn't finish listening after 13 minutes.

Your bias is showing. You only mentioned negative issues in your coverage of Joe Biden. Why not mention his accomplishments? Why not cover both sides instead of calling him a "man of yesterday"? Every when his launch was, in part, framed around our best days still being ahead of us? Please do better.

Apparently I will have to Google this story of the shooting of this family going to the coffee shop to get the real story. What's with the rabbit hole? Why report it if you don't have the facts?
