C13Originals Expands Audio Documentary Slate with New Season of Peabody Award-Nominated Gangster Capitalism


C13Originals, the Peabody Award-nominated documentary studio division of leading premium podcast studio Cadence13, an Audacy company, today announced that the third season of Gangster Capitalism—the critically acclaimed documentary podcast franchise that offers an unflinching look at white collar corruption and the dark side of the American dream—will chart the rise and fall of Jerry Falwell Jr., and the damage left in his wake at Liberty University.

Season One of Gangster Capitalism focused on the college admissions scandal that exposed everyone from Hollywood celebrities to Fortune 500 CEOs in an audacious bribery scheme. Gangster Capitalism, Season Two explored the NRA, exposing the financial mismanagement and scandals. With never-before-heard insider accounts from former employees, Season Two pulled the curtain back on how executives used the organization as their own piggy bank.

Now, in Gangster Capitalism, Season Three: Jerry Falwell Jr. and Liberty University, the award-winning C13Originals documentary team uncovers the inside story of how Liberty University and its founding family have been rocked by power, greed, and hypocrisy. The sex scandal that engulfed the largest evangelical Christian university in the world and Jerry and Becki Falwell is just the beginning. For the eight-episode new season, the Gangster Capitalism team spoke with more than eighty people—insiders, former and current Liberty students, faculty, staff, high-ranking administrators, and those with intimate knowledge of Falwell Jr., many going on the record to reveal their explosive stories for the first time, as well as authors, historians, journalists, and theologians.

Gangster Capitalism, Season Three: Jerry Falwell Jr. and Liberty University will launch with the first two episodes on May 26, 2021, on Apple Podcasts, Audacy, Spotify, and everywhere podcasts are available. New episodes will be available on Wednesdays through July 7, 2021.
