What an interesting and bizarre story I’ve never heard before! I listened to all 3 episodes in one sitting! I loved that through her narrating you feel like you can see and hear the sounds of India!

I heard about him back in 2017 when he died, Times of India printed a story about him and his family. I cant imagine living in that location, after his death i visited that mahal and found out some of his items that he must be using. its very eerie place and dangerous as its in the middle of the...Read full review »

Sound mixing & atmospherics took me to India! The story, as it began, resonated with vague news memories of the 1970’s. Great listening!

This was one of the best podcast documentary I have ever heard. The suspense keeps you on the edge of the seat.

A fascinating story. Ellen Barry, please do more podcasts!

Listened to all 3 back to back and wished there were more. Such a beautiful and heartbreaking story.

Such a moving story... From this I understand much more about the personal impact of the Partition. Beautifully told...
Debbo18 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/02/20
I finished all three episodes at once. I couldn’t stop listening. The ending left me feeling like there was a hole in my heart... sad, beautiful, and captivating.
MeggFarr via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/01/20
I devoured this over an afternoon having read the article last year. It’s beautifully paced, richly edited, respectfully scripted and so very sad. A story of myth, partition and loss. A must listen. I cried buckets at the end.

Thank You for telling this story. I quite enjoyed it.
Daren72 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/03/20
Great story that needs to be brought to light in America! Quick 3 episodes of a fascinating tale. I loved hearing the different threads of this story!

An amazing atmospheric slice of journalism. Beautifully told. Hilariously unpredictable, tragic, and a brilliant glimpse into the utter strangeness of our world.
LeftyLoggy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/21/20
Why are all mystery / true crime / human interest programs these days following this ridiculous trend where the presenter doesn’t stick to their role, but they have to insert themself as a protagonist? Example: “I read this thing ... and I didn’t know to think... so I thought some more... so I...Read full review »

Love your work!
Pordis via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/19/20
I enjoy this show because the research is very well done & presented factually. I also enjoy most of the guests. That being said: the last guest wouldn’t let the host speak & was unable to articulate her thoughts & the nasal vocal fry hurt my ears. She was so incredibly annoying I...Read full review »

Wow
I loved it but too short I want more

This is a compelling gothic tale . It’s one of my favorite podcasts and I was sorry for it to end .

I wish it had been longer/ a little slower - so many interesting angles to this story...
Glove Box via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/27/20
This story touched me deeply. I am changed. And on behalf of all of us stuck in date trees, thank you.
fadingDiamond via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/24/20
I happened to see this on the podcast list. I enjoyed all the three parts. However I feel like you could have rigged more into the past history and political and government response to the family. I wonder why the modern India do not talk about any such historical family?! Also expect more...Read full review »

I remembered reading a piece on this family in the NYT Magazine years ago. Intrigued, I listened to the podcast. The fantasy and mystery that was weaved and the history that produced it are profound statements about human nature, identity, and place. Thank you for a compelling story well told.

I really loved this story... thank you

Thank you for this intriguing story and all the hard work behind it, loved listening to it!
schaazi via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 04/18/20
fascinating, well told story. haunting.
colorofheartache via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/16/20
Despicably, writer Ellen Barry, uses lonely man for story. She then rummages through his stuff for more story after he dies waiting for her call. She did this because she couldn’t go through his stuff when he was still alive ...
jussW22 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/16/20
A very enjoyable evening listen.
tidewaterglacier via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/15/20
One of the most interesting stories I’ve ever heard. If it had been a movie, I would have thought the scenario to be implausible. Highly recommend.
Stringerup73 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/13/20
If you’re looking to be transported to a place where there are palaces, royal families and where things may not be quite as they seem, this is for you.
MitchFin via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/08/20
Beautifully told tale!
Thisisbecm via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/06/20
This family is basically me at home right now.
Aklistener1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/03/20
All the ins and outs of a wonderful global story that well and truely could be a fairy tale.
keeganthomson via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/31/20
Incredible story. Not at all what I anticipated in the most delightful way. Bravo!
Jdubbed80 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/28/20
Lovely piece of work
Ruby Teys via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/28/20
That was the most devastating, depressing, beautiful story. I definitely shed a few tears at the end. I feel a bit empty after listening to it... It certainly gave me a lot to think about and it was very well told. Excellent work.
753mkat via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/26/20
A short but engaging series that brought me to tears by the end. Truly heartwarming, mysterious and with a saddening conclusion.
miss.creants via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 03/25/20
Didn’t want it to end. Very well today and interesting!
Jkcmagee via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/24/20
The story reminded me that sometimes we as humans create our own past to live with the present. Some characters we meet aren’t fairy tales at all, just people who need kindness and friendship.
CatLadyVibes via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/23/20
i love India and was drawn to the podcast for that reason. i think Ellen has a “large” podcast project about partition. The Jungle Prince is a story with an unexpected ending. Thanks Ellen Barry
Mo Donnelly via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/22/20
Though only three episodes long, it seemed like I spent years listening to this story. I felt the narrators yearning to believe in this fairytale on earth, and her heartbrokenness at the history of it all. I wept at the end not only for a friendship, but for a unity this tale brought to the...Read full review »

A beautiful story delicately told
davidash52 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/20/20
It’s such a beautiful and sad story. I’m so awed by this woman’s ability to connect with people. She integrates herself into their lives and becomes an integral member of their families. And not with pushy tactics, but with gentle dogged steps.
