New York Magazine
True CrimeSociety & CultureDocumentary

What can a billionaire get away with these days? A secret bat cave? A harem of women? An international spy operation? Stealing the soul of a small town in Montana? A Silicon Valley venture capitalist was accused of running a massive sex-trafficking operation by his best bro friend. And we unravel the truth about both of them - their business, their break-up, their lies, and their embarrassing text messages. The story of a billionaire with a hero complex, the ex-spy who turned his life inside out, and us, the reporters who got caught up in their macho drama. Cover Story is an investigative podcast series featuring original reporting from New York Magazine. Part of the Vox Media Podcast Network. New episodes every Tuesday.

  • … Much Ado About (almost) Nothing …

    … I listen to podcasts every day. Most of them are True Crime/Swindler stories and the best ones will make you cancel your dinner plans so you can binge them all at once. This one, suggested by another show, is just a massive waste of time. It’s the story a super rich guy in a small town who likes to pay strippers for sex, strippers who like rich guys paying them for sex, and his pathologically lying former employee who spills the beans on the rich guy, but somehow becomes the villain while the ... more

  • Sorry but it’s a waste of time

    This podcast is very well produced making it extremely listenable, but look under the hood and there really is absolutely nothing going on.. It’s actually a little embarrassing that the makers of this pod were simply fed lies, that they swallowed, and at the end we’re like, yeah we still have a story here… then bending over backwards to tease and dramatise this “story”.. It’s actually a shame such resources weren’t spent on a more worthwhile story.
