Veteran journalist Vicky Ward announced that she’ll be launching a podcast titled “Chasing Ghislaine.” The podcast is set to include conversations with infamous sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
Ward had been covering Epstein for years. Thanks to her work she was able to rack up enough material to launch a podcast that she claims will feature an extended number of episodes. As she has hours and hours of conversations with Epstein.
What You Can Expect To Hear
Vicky Ward talked about her link to Epstein. Directly the link is said to have been Ghislaine Maxwell. She is Epstein’s former girlfriend and is also awaiting trial herself. As she is accused of being part of running the sexual assault scheme that Epstein became infamous for. On her relationship with Maxwell, Ward claims they were part of a social circle of brits living in New York. She mentioned,
“She was part of the ex-pat world. You will hear a lot from the people who were in it with me. She was someone who would pop up from time to time.”
There Are Also Testimonies From People Close To Epstein
Other than the alleged conversations with Epstein himself that are going to be featured in the podcast Ward is announcing that she has been able to collect at least 20 testimonies from people close to Epstein. For Ward, the theme of the podcast is essentially male power. She mentioned on this,
“It’s very much about men and male power and the code that exists and meetings that go on in private rooms and the international power that can wield that most of us don’t know about,”
Are The Tapes For Real?

Think about this, there’s a woman who allegedly has a ton of hours of interviews with one of the most infamous characters of the last 20 years. Why hasn’t Netflix thrown a ton of money her way to make a series? Well, the thing is there are a lot of doubts about her work. In the podcast, we’ll hear the Epstein conversations reenacted by actors. Why is that? Ward claims that she lost the actual tapes! Sadly, if it sounds too good to be true it’s probably because it is.
Ward’s Work Has Been Discredited Already

Ward started following Epstein’s trail around 20 years ago when she wrote a profile on him in her days working at Vanity Fair. She claims that her original work on Epstein was considerably dialed back by her editor at the time. Hinting at the fact that magazine at the time didn’t want to trash Epstein. Graydon Carter the editor who made Ward dial back her first story on Epstein mentioned it all came down to sources. While Ward has always thought that Graydon wanted to protect Epstein. At this point, it really comes down to who you want to believe!
