This is one of the most gripping podcasts I have heard in my life to-date. I binge-heard the entire series in two days. I would like to commend the spirits & determination of the entire team who dug deep into this dark world and gave us an unforgettable experience.

Turns out the main person interviewed for this podcast was lying. Shouldn’t there be a retraction or episode with an explanation?
Xsovereigntyx via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/12/20
This gives a bad name to investigative journalism. No research done. Bummer it came out as fake because you think you can trust people to do their research
shambischance via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/12/20
I am not quite done the podcast but I am shocked! This is so well done! 5 star for sure!
Skilz20 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/06/20
Too bad it came out that everything in this podcast was fabricated

I’m a fan of the New York Times daily podcast so I gave this podcast a chance almost 2 years ago I listened to everything they said. This podcast is all a lie the Canadian police said the 24-year-old made this all up how can the New York Times have any credibility after this 🤦‍♂️.

...and then trying to spin this series as solid journalism? Ouch.
TShaneRogers via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/30/20
One of the sources was just arrested in Canada for making up the story. This is a huge embarrassment for The NY Times.
GeePeezy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/27/20
Oops The New York Times messed up again and put Muslims in danger again
mj42069 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/26/20
Turned out to all be a hoax. Terrible journalism.

The most remarkable reporting I’ve ever heard.

Потрясающий подкаст, открывающий глаза на реальный порядок дел. Слушать однозначно, один из лучших подкастов мира.

Rukmini is a brave, empathetic woman of incredible talent. Thank you so much for bringing us these stories.
curious NZer via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 09/05/20
I will admit without any shame that I listened to this entire podcast in one day... admittedly, this was on a long car ride, but every corner of this podcast was very interesting. The host gives a great non biased explanation of both sides and is very credible. I gathered information on history...Read full review »

The level of reporting in these podcasts is absolutely incredible. It provides very deep insight into the functioning’s and mindsets of lSIS. I have much respect for the reporters who work relentlessly and risk their own wellbeing to bring us these stories.
unhappy dude via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/27/20
I think this was one of the first podcasts I’ve ever listened to, and it’s set such a high bar for podcasts for me ever since. The entire story, how it was narrated and the voice was just captivating.
Abbydariya via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/27/20

This show is sooo good
DestinM via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/15/20
Very interesting topic, told more or less like a detective. You get deeper and deeper into the story, motives and work methods are explained. Rukmini really is an expert on this subject and has a very attractive voice too. I listened it in one go on my way from Berlin to my home town.
Recensent48 via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 08/15/20
Fascinating, eye-opening, shocking in many places (as one would expect), and a really well produced must-listen for any layperson interested in the subject.
Smojo2604 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/11/20
The research for this podcast was the Old school journalism way. Glad the I took the time to listened, and mad about the outcome.
oaburgos15 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/10/20

Ram iPhone4 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/08/20
You know how sometimes you're reminded of something that felt perfect? It could be a meal, a coat you loved, a birthday party given by old friends or a bike trip you planned and it worked out better than you hoped? That's this podcast for me (the others are too). I don't know what it...Read full review »

Amazing podcast. Really deep insight into the inner workings of ISIS. I binge-listened in about two days, it was great!
AccidentOrDesign via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/21/20
Wonderfully researched and compelling. It will help you understand why people join ISIS, the rationale and why some people leave. The host is an expert in this subject and her knowledge is amazing and the result of years of hard work. Great podcast!
