Such an gripping tail. Really goes into the mind of what created Isis, and there ideology. Also touches on the women and children affected by this group! Very well done!!

First hand account of being inside ISIS and relaying it from the eyes of misguided operatives and those who suffered. Amazing piece of journalism !

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 »

Outstanding reporting.
sheaob via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/03/20
Incredibly well researched and produced. Top notch reporters and storytelling. Binged every episode in two days. Learned a lot that I had not known about Muslim jihadi’s and recruitment of young men from country’s outside the Middle East. The stories told of their torture and rape of young girls...Read full review »

Great perspective looking into the institution of ISIS, and the bureaucracy within a terrorist group!

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!

For bringing this wonderful program to us.
Velma Tsau via Apple Podcasts · Hong Kong · 03/28/20
This is the most interesting, most intensive and most uncomfortable Podcast I‘ve heard so far. The Story and the reporting is very detailed, very accurate and is properly processed so it works very good in a multi-part Podcast. This is a very representative Podcast for all Podcasts, released by...Read full review »

I learned so much listening to this podcast. It was informative, suspenseful and honest. I learned of the caliphate, how it works and why it continues to be so strong. Thank you Rukmini Callimachi and all involved in this podcast.

This is a brilliant podcast, and another incredible example of high quality content via podcast platforms to educate ourselves on what’s going on in the world. Amazing work.

Possibly The best podcast that I have have a listen to in my entire Life

This podcast has provided the most granular information about ISIS of any documentary or book I have seen or read. It is an immersive experience — an exceptional piece of journalism.

Thank you for a great piece of journalism

Why
Why are they protecting the identity of a terrorist? The same organization that will dox a 15 year old Trump supporter will go to any length to protect a man guilty of murdering and betraying his nation. I guess you can do anything and the NYT will cover for you if you’re a member of a “protected...Read full review »

Caliphate gave me a much better understanding of what is happening in this part of the world and spreading. Thank you!

Excellent resource and very informative. I binged the podcast and wished it continued.
CDKUCA via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/07/20
So far liking the podcast content but the music is so annoying. If you are going to have music have it be a short sound clip, not over a minute. Super irritating
Lostrisdancer via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/06/20
Well done. Intriguing. I was hooked.
07Beebs via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/06/20
This was an addictive listen. I would love to hear more in the future.
dyatic via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/06/20
Wow! Just wow! I was sceptical before starting this podcast because I had never listen to an investigative journalist series before. But this has completely changed my mind. Started episode 1 and binged the remaining 11 episodes, absolutely amazing! Highly recommend to anyone looking to open...Read full review »

I’ve listened to this podcast five times already and I could listen to it five more if I wanted to. The journalism is amazing in this series and you must listen to it! Just do it!!

lautje1993 via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 01/21/20
I’ve re-listened to this three times now, and each time I am struck by how well this podcast has been done. Rukmini is an excellent reporter and story teller... her bravery and intelligence is something that I wish everyone knew about so I tell anyone who asks about podcasts to check this one out!

Absolutely brilliant, balanced and a true eye opener
Lizzy £$£ via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/20/20
This podcast is so good. The topic didn’t appeal to me but I gave it a try and I’m so glad I did. The work reporters do is so impressive, important, dangerous, etc. I am developing such a respect for the media and how important it is in our society. Not to mention it had me on the edge of my...Read full review »
