Description

We now know that Jeffrey Epstein was a sexual predator. He was also accused of fraud, embezzlement, coercion and more. But for most of his life, he was a mystery to the public, and to many of the people who knew him. In this six part series, we peel back the layers of Epstein’s life to detail his financial and sexual crimes, and his network of enablers, with original reporting and interviews. From humble beginnings, Epstein came to amass significant wealth which he used to buy sex, social status, silence, even justice —until money wasn’t enough. From Wondery (“Dirty John”, “The Shrink Next Door”), and hosted by Lindsay Graham (“American Scandal”).

The college dropout who becomes a private school teacher. The teacher who becomes a Wall Street titan. That’s the myth of Jeffrey Epstein’s rise to wealth and power.

Did he really commit suicide? Is his cult still in power? The Devil Within finally sheds light on questions left unanswered for decades...Listen Here: wondery.fm/TheDevilWithin

Not 3 bones broken, the Hyoid bone was broken in 3 pieces. Hyoid bones breaking in hangings is rare as frog hair, let alone a triple fracture of a single bone in your neck. he was murdered to shut him up, and shut him down. easiest thing to do is to take every picture he had of the rich and famous and investigate them. IMHO, if you knew Jeff, hung around with him at his parties your guilty by association until you can prove you did nothing wrong.

Mysterious is an odd word choice to describe a rich pedophile

thank you for sharing this investigation. I am disgusted and horrified to learn of how so many were complicit in this sick sick person's manipulation of so many and in so many ways. whistleblowers are so very needed in this apparent anonymous world we are in.

I've listened to hundreds of podcasts and this has more ads than any other. Sounds more like ads interspersed with a story, than a story interspersed with ads. Terrible

Jesus Christ, if you prey on children who CANNOT consent to sex, that doesn't compare to homosexuality.

Yikes. What I'm learning here is that if you have enough money and power you're above the law.

Jeffrey Epstein didn't kill himself... does this podcast describe how the Clinton Foundation is also a HUGE child sex trafficker? How MANY, MANY in Hollywood, or Pedowood, are soul selling pedophiles? Does it tell you about them scaring the living hell out of little kids, before they are sacrificed for their Adrenochrome?

Another wonderful podcast by Wondery. Good job condensing this sordid story into easy-to-follow episodes. I'll keep subscribed so I can get any updates on this case. I hope they catch the Maxwell lady! Although, it might be in the interest of many powerful men that she remains well hidden...
