Digging deep into the facts and letting out things that we outsiders otherwise would not have been able to know. Brought listeners close to something seemly remote to our daily lives but in fact could be such a fundamental aspect of each human being.

Wow what a great podcast. Interesting, in-depth, and top notch production quality. Great voice to listen too, and really gets to the heart of the subject. I really loved it.

Couldn’t stop listening to this journey into another world.

Absolutely loved this. It was addictive. Love Rukmini and her perseverance. Provides an inside look into ISIS affected areas and lives of people affected. The other thing about Rukmini is that she sounds totally non judgement almost to a fault. The episode on Yezidi girls is just nerve wrecking,...Read full review »

Meh
If you have an interesting story to tell, then tell it. Don’t spice it up with irrelevant interruptions, just to sound interesting. Don’t do the oh so annoying podcast thing where you talk about a thing, and then switch to a recording of the thing. Your listeners will get it the first time.

This podcast was incredibly insightful and addicting. I cannot say enough good things about it. Please make more like this one, these stories need to be told!

This was fascinating and riveting. Thank you for giving me a glimpse into a world, a war, and the hearts of all the people featured in this podcast.

Talk about homegrown terrorism by white supremacists who hole the market on terror worldwide. Mass shootings and race violence is perpetrated by them. Focusing on suggesting that terrorism is only ISIS and related to Islam is fakery.

Spellbinding. I could not stop listening. Unnerving, scary, sad, triumphant, and discouraging. This has all the feels!
Vester+70 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/24/19
Rich with detail, history, and keen observations, this podcast provides insights on the power and influence of ISIS and its impact on the local and international stage.

One of the best podcasts I’ve heard. I’ve never heard this issue described in such a clear way.

This is the best podcast I have ever listened to. Not only was it entertaining and made well, but it was incredibly informative. I genuinely learned a lot from all the episodes of this podcast
Mjay98 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/29/19
No fake news. Facts from a credible team who’ve been to the front line
podcast55fan via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/28/19
Intriguing all the way through with lots of interesting information about isis. I found myself losing track of time and at the same time learning.
Dwarfmeap12 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/27/19
This is one of the best podcasts that I have listened to. Really fantastic piece of work done by Andy, Rukmini and team. It has one of the most well researched and written contents. Hats off to the NYT team for coming up with this gem.
hbndhd via Apple Podcasts · India · 06/24/19
For those that have always known OF the enemy but never known ABOUT it, this is a great podcast to help you delineate radical jihad without forcing empathy or tolerance. Rukmini Callimachi gives an impervious profile on ISIS that as been missing in most Western propaganda-filled dialogue in the...Read full review »

Ggffhjjngfff via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/11/19
Really good series and really well produced. I was given a real deep insight in a frightning world which now seems more frightning....not of the terror threat but what people can get away with, hurting, killing and kidnapping people - and still is a canadian isis fighter walking around in...Read full review »

A well-researched and interesting podcast. Can I say it was a joy to listen to? Because despite the dark waters, it was a joy to listen to. I've been reccing this left and right to my friends.
shipperslist via Apple Podcasts · Finland · 06/07/19
This turned out to be chilling in the end. I was also very impressed with the quality of journalism. She never took anyone at their word and instead hunted down confirmation and corroboration of each interviewee.
JH383 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/07/19
Definitely a good recommendation to listen
GLDowling via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/05/19
This is courageous and in-depth journalism at its finest. I devoured this podcast in two days and feel it may prove challenging to find one of equal substance.
Jitterbug510 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/04/19
The type of journalistic integrity we need more of!
Kittybo57 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/04/19
I learned so much about the group via journalism that goes to the ends of the earth to bring us insight and knowledge. Highly recommend.
Raj_in_charge via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 06/03/19
This is an absolutely amazing podcast. I can't believe the ways people try to recruit ISIS members.
Bookshelves91 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/02/19
This is everything a podcast should be. Thoughtful, well-researched, offering unique insights and top quality production.
s-k-w via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/30/19
It probably is! A must listen podcast and kudos to the reporters.
nayan_ss via Apple Podcasts · India · 05/29/19
I really enjoyed listening to this podcast. I learned so much and enjoyed hearing such a thoughtful perspective. I hope we can expect to hear more/some updates in the future!
emueller23 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/24/19
I had to MAKE myself stop listening since there were only 12 episodes. I limited myself to an episode a day and it was a highlight of the day every time. The show and the reporting was extremely interesting and thorough and sincere and it gave such an honest glimpse into an organization that has...Read full review »

The New York Times folks.....
Aw2real via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/14/19
This is a substantial piece of journalism. So glad I dedicated the time to listen. In the world of 24 hour news sound bites, we need more pieces like this.
Bruz713 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/14/19
This podcast is quite simply incredible.
Dee477843277 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/10/19
I’ve recently discovered podcasts and they really are a “throwback” to what used to be known as oral history. Oral history is riveting and let’s be frank, it’s how most of history is written and translated down through generations. This podcast is the penultimate demonstration of the...Read full review »

This is honestly one of the hardest and subsequently easiest podcasts I’ve ever listened to. I found myself constantly rewinding to listen again to specific parts in order to make sure I was interpreting it correctly. Such a fascinating descent into the abyss of ideology and humanity that is...Read full review »
