Great ‘radio’ drama
Really enjoyed this dramatised audio version of a true story. John Hamm is excellent in the lead role and the guy who plays Tony Kiristis (sorry, can’t recall his name) is also great 👍 Brilliant production and not toooo many ads. I would definitely like to listen to more podcasts like this!
