For 50 years, psychology textbooks used the tragic story of a murdered young woman to teach students about the devastating impact of inaction by neighbors. The magic number - 38 - was chosen by the media as the number of careless onlookers who heard the woman’s demise in real-time and did nothing. But the true story of what happened that night teaches us that even when there are bystanders, there are still plenty of helpers willing to come running when they’re called to aid a beloved friend.

Introducing 'Power: The Maxwells'
514
Everyone’s heard of Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffery Epstein’s alleged partner in crime. But there’s a shadowy figure who hangs above her who you likely don’t know: her father, media tycoon Robert Maxwell. His rise from nothing, to his success as a businessman, to his fall from the deck of his super yacht under mysterious circumstances, is something straight out of a crime novel. And his favorite daughter Ghislaine’s theory?: her father was murdered. From Somethin’ Else, makers of ‘The Immaculate Deception’ and ‘Faultline: Bush, Blair & Iraq’, hosted by Investigative journalist Tara Palmeri, ‘Power: The Maxwells’ is a seven part series on the incredible true story of a media mogul whose legacy is still being felt today and the family saga of Ghislaine, a millionaire daddy’s girl who became an accused sex trafficker and her brother, Kevin, who became Britain’s biggest personal bankrupt. 'Power: The Maxwells’ tells the story of a family like no other - a rags to riches to rags again tale of power and greed. New episodes drop every Tuesday wherever you get your podcasts.

He got his money, and his parachutes, then disappeared into the night, never to be heard from again. Did he die in the Washington wilderness? Or did he manage to make an escape with his bag of cash?
