It's been nine years since former stockbroker Bernie Madoff pulled off the biggest financial fraud in American history – a $65 billion Ponzi scheme that sentenced him to 150 years in prison and left thousands of unknowing participants asking "how"? And "why?"

A new original series by Audible Channels aims to answer those questions.

Hosted by journalist Steve Fishman (and available free for Amazon Prime users), Ponzi Supernova features exclusive insights from Madoff himself, along with interviews with the FBI, SEC, former investors, victims and more.

"I finally examined a question that had always bugged me," says Fishman. "Why did Madoff succeed for so long?"

(To say I'm hooked on this podcast would be an understatement.)
