Billionaire Boys Club

In 1980s Los Angeles, a group of prep school boys got together to make investments together, get rich quick, and live large. But headed by a handsome and charismatic leader named Joe Hunt, the members of the self-proclaimed “Billionaire Boys Club” get sucked deeper into twisted schemes of kidnapping, torture, and revenge. The boys must stick together, or risk prison - or worse. From the makers of The Wonderland Murders, Young Charlie, and The Dating Game Killer, this six-part series is co-hosted by Tracy Pattin and Emmy-nominated actor Timothy Olyphant.

    Wondery Presents: Against The Odds: The K2 Disaster

    In the summer of 2008, some of the world’s best climbers made their way towards the summit of K2, the second highest mountain on earth. Sunny mornings suddenly transform into hurricane force winds. Avalanches drop from overhead without warning, unexpected blizzards leave climbers disoriented and lost in weather that can drop to 60 below. But that didn’t stop a group of climbers from attempting the feat. The next season of Wondery's Against the Odds tells their story. Through a series of events no one could have foreseen, it will become one of the worst climbing disasters in modern times. It will also lead to extraordinary acts of bravery and an epic triumph of human survival. Listen at wondery.fm/ATO_BillionaireBoys .

    Introducing: Cheat!

    Have you ever wondered about those people in life who don’t play by the rules? Maybe it was the person who looked over your shoulder in that exam. The person who got the job instead of you because they lied on their application or the nice fella on the phone who said he was from the bank and ended up taking all your money. We have a name for these people. We call them cheats. People who cheat the system, largescale cheats, social media cheats. We are fascinated by them. We read about them in paper. Or watch news stories about them on TV. We marvel at their rise and take a weird pleasure in their fall. But do we ever ask what makes these cheats actually do the bad things they do? What makes them cheat? From Somethin’ Else, makers of ‘Power: The Maxwells’ and ‘The Fault Line: Bush, Blair and Iraq’, hosted by storyteller Alzo Slade, ‘Cheat!’ tells the inside stories behind some of the biggest scandals in contemporary history and the flawed protagonists at their heart: controversial and contentious figures from the world of pop culture, business, sport, music, politics. Why do people cheat? Is it ever justifiable? And most importantly are cheats – these people we think of as the dregs of our society – actually not so different from ourselves? A Somethin' Else production.
