They has a Fauci-style "expert" on Russia who literally confused and the names of the premieres and obviously was lying / making stuff up. I am not even a history major and knew the order of succession.Read full review »

Excellent show. I listened with my husband and we both enjoyed it.

I binged this whole series, super interesting guy. It blows my mind that someone can do so many horrible things yet end up having such a privileged life.

Very interesting in the beginning but faded and got repetitive towards the end, cool information but not groundbreaking
Al-Russ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/10/22
Presenter sounds like hes got no emotions

Love the show, why do you run a commercial/intro fully 8 minutes in the middle chapters? Do you think after 6 chapters I’d forgotten what I was listening to? Or is that done to benefit your Alzheimer’s affected listeners ? Still a great show, just an odd marketing technique….

Excellent story telling. I was never bored. Intrigue abound. Thanks for your work.

This is one of the best stories I have ever heard. Very interesting, couldn’t stop listening. Really recommend.
StivRid via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/24/22
The story is interesting and I’m thoroughly curious about what happens but Imperative entertainment and the show’s producers/additional narrator is too frustrating to continue. Instead of moving on to the next episode, or even silence, I’m thrown into a preview of another show. The secondary...Read full review »

If this guy is to be believed, women are endlessly throwing themselves at him because he’s just so irresistible. Hmm…I’ll take that with a grain of salt, which leads me to conclude the same about the rest of his story

The best and most genuine spy story out there. Jack is one in 100 million.
The Duke of Hearts via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/08/22
Really interesting story 👍
Beastiejw via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/04/22
What a wild well told story but..why come public now?
Lionessinflames via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/19/22
Great story, the ads are annoying but you need to keep the lights on, but for the love of god…. Why do you play a trailer for the show 10 minutes into the show we are already watching?

What a story teller he is. So fascinating to listen to his progression of ‘life’. Amazing!
Doobeedi via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 07/17/22
It’s a good story I just don’t believe it to be true . Good story though
00000!00000 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/12/22
I loved this story. Jack did some careless and destructive things in this life. He’s the first to say so. This podcast - and Jack’s honesty - really allow the listener to experience a tiny bit of the intensity, the struggle, the victories, and the losses of this man’s unique life experience....Read full review »

Absolutely amazing story, wonderful story telling and really can’t understand how it doesn’t have 10 stars… truly unique
WorldNinja via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/06/22
A MUST LISTEN! Same as most of the others, fascinating and gripped from the start, excellent.
NatalieABZ via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/05/22
Meh
Jack Barsky sounds like a terrible person tbh. Not cuz he’s a spy, I’m cool w that. But because he’s this crazy narcissistic douche who thinks I care about his personal life—I don’t. That’s the problem w this podcast. It’s a very cool subject ruined by its lack of direction. There’s NOT A DROP...Read full review »

This is easily in the top five of all the podcasts that I have listened to. The content is incredibly intriguing and very easy to follow. I can’t recommend this podcast enough.
Flbnd via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/11/22
The story itself is fascinating. When Jack talks, you want to listen. Sadly, the melodramatic narrator, useless sound effects, and poor editing combined with a story structure that jumps around too much, basically gets in the way. The show is worth a listen; just be prepared to be confused at...Read full review »

Absolutely intriguing story. A phenomenal perspective into history, cultures, and the mind of someone who’s life was shaped by the most unusual events.
klimperton via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/06/22
This is a heck of a story that you just don’t get to hear. Thank you!
Christ___ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/02/22
Just phenomenal, gripping from start to finish, great podcast about a very interesting story.
BruceyisSexy via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/27/22
This is one of the best podcasts going around. Jack’s story is so compelling, and presented in such an engaging way, I simply couldn’t turn it off. And that’s saying something because I usually struggle to get through more than a few episodes of most podcasts. Fantastic.
Ally_blue via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/27/22
I served in the U.S. Army in the 1980s on the East German Border in the Fulda Gap. We had encounters with Soviet Military Liason Mission (SMLM). I thoroughly enjoyed this. It takes me back to the heady days of the end of the Cold War. This needs to go to TV or the big screen. Get it to Netflix ASAP.
Lord Newcomb via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/27/22
This pod cast is probably binged more than any other! Story, casting, framework it is related in , all made it worth the hours of listening!! Then dealing with the fact “ it is ending soon!!” Thank you so much!!!
Kbhailey via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/18/22
The ads were a bit over dramatic very annoying. But the podcast was great am going to get the book. 💕
la hermanas via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/17/22
Wow
Addictive. Amazing story. Well done.
2021retire via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/10/22
I've really been enjoying this podcast. I.love hearing the story of going from a regular person, to a spy and then what he has to do to get into the US and disappear. No you won't hear spy secrets but as you listen, imagine how your life would be uprooted, imagine scenerios where you have...Read full review »
KimmySue3 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/10/22
Binged the whole series within 24 hrs. Fascinating & very well-presented. Most interesting aspect was to hear about Jack’s emotional evolution as he got older. His frank honesty makes a compelling contrast with his previous life of subterfuge. P.S. Really interesting to read all these...Read full review »
Fluffster Normalpaws via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/09/22
There was a lot of repetition in each episode. The story was fascinating, but in the end I didn’t like Jack Barsky.He didn’t take responsibility for any of his children until Chelsie. It was pretty obvious that he was egocentric and selfish.
random38482047-0;7 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/03/22
Agree with the commenter who states the obvious, this man has a strong German accent mixed with a New York accent, like many immigrants. No Native American would ever believe this man was an American. Very little is believable without addressing this obvious lie. What did this man actually do? It...Read full review »
NYC131313 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/12/22
I absolutely loved this podcast! I was hooked from the beginning and it stayed interesting to the end! Some people have complained that there weren’t enough details about his “spy” work… but this isn’t a Hollywood film! Obviously he can’t share sensitive details that only the government should...Read full review »

great listen. confused on how i should feel about the situation.
Vols Fols via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/09/22
Great look, the only thing that could have been better was I felt the ending was a bit abrupt.
CamaroGirl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/08/22
Couldn’t stop listening and highly recommend this podcast!
skeenp via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/01/22
Jack Barsky, hiding in plain sight, a compassionate, genteel man, risked his life for years. He does a great job of reliving & enlightening ALL of us to the outrageous & real-life spying going on all around us (and the World). Moscow lies; sends him a radio message; “Order of the Red...Read full review »

What a wonderful story. Brilliantly narrated. Loved it!!
Cynthiaer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/29/22
Your life story was told wonderfully. Stayed up all night binge listening.
Phxonhip via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/29/22
Excellent, informative story telling which kept me on the edge of my seat... literally!
kd^ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/27/22
Really enjoyed this podcast. Only thing i would change is shortening the intros, outros and the narrated show introduction. Just gets repetitive
andrewbray via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/18/22
Fascinating life but lacking in details of the “spy” stuff he actually did.
ac1967 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/10/22
Good story, well told. Very interesting for a child of the 60s but I’m disheartened by the fact that this man got away with both spying and defecting and both governments bent over backwards to assure his comfort and that of his families. Jack really pulled one over on everyone. Jack defrauded...Read full review »

Highly recommend. The story is told so well. I’m hooked and can’t wait to see how it ends.
Miss worldwide via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/22/22
Loved the honest, behind-the-scenes look into this world. Narrative techniques were brilliantly done.
Popupslayer123 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/21/22
The agent himself tells the story and he describes a world I don’t know and am very curious about. Other voices on the show are knowledgeable and they share what they know through experience. I am tired of opinions and chat and PERSONALITY. This is a guy telling what happened. More...Read full review »
