In this episode, the most familiar faces of Madoff's collapse - the victims - in a new light. Reporter Steve Fishman goes behind the scenes of a surprisingly effective and complicated recovery effort that blurs the lines between fair and cruel, guilty and innocent.
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.
