Swindled is a podcast that utilizes narrative storytelling, archival audio, and immersive soundscapes to tell true stories of white-collar criminals, con artists, and corporate evil.
The anonymous host, using “A Concerned Citizen” as his moniker, recounts tales of real life, financially motivated crimes including embezzlements, frauds, Ponzi schemes, environmental disasters, corporate negligence, corruption, and more.
Less than a year after its debut, Swindled has been featured on Spotify, named 'One of the Best' True Crime podcasts by NYMag and Vulture, picked as 'Podcast of the Week' by The Guardian, called a 'must-listen' by Minnesota's StarTribune, and been included on multiple 'best of' lists compiled by Digital Trends, DiscoverPods, Lifewire, and more.
Swindled has become a mainstay on the iTunes Top 200 charts in the Business category in the United States, Canada, Australia, and United Kingdom, which has resulted in sizable and rapid growth. The show currently boasts a 5-star rating on all platforms.
