I was put off by the voice used for commentary at the end of each episode as well as the repetitive and long recap at the beginning of each episode. That said, this is a very entertaining podcast. Good job. Please continue your work.

I couldn’t help but binge the whole thing. Just a fascinating story.

Why so many commercials? We skip through them with that many. Disappointing. It was great heading Jack’s story though.

This was a gripping story telling series. The art of tracing details was absolutely fascinating. As a new podcaster I’m learning a lot.

Brilliant

I don’t think I’ve ever binged a longer-series podcast as quickly as this one. The storyline, first-person commentary, and narration were all superb. Bravo!

One of the best stories I’ve ever heard. Delivery was very engaging and well produced!
LivEvie via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/22/23
This was an amazing story expertly told. All the drama of a spy thriller, but it actually happened. I wish there were more episodes. This has stayed with me for a long time.

This podcast is binge worthy! I started listening yesterday and have one episode left. Truly entertaining!
Rennebohm via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/05/23
You can’t write fiction as good as this real life story. Excellent narration!
JKoros via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/25/23
Im not a big on podcasts . I mean on fiction . When i educate myself , main point is to read . And many people are listen to audiobooks and then say i read this and that - nope - doesn't cut for me . Those short cuts . (Pun intended) reading is a job its in its way a learning curve . Im...Read full review »

Excellent, so enjoyable great structure and informative.

Not enough about actual spy work, too much on affairs. The next-episode previews, commercials and intro are very annoying.

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.
kjhwill72 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/27/22
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.
podcastbinger22 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/19/22
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….
redwolfhopw via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/08/22
Put this one off for months because I thort I was going rubbish, turns out it’s the best podcast iv listened too, absolutely amazing story
Wintywozere via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/01/22
Excellent story telling. I was never bored. Intrigue abound. Thanks for your work.
DJ Splash via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/26/22
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
diamondsonmywindshield via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/17/22
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?
Rasputin's girth via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 07/18/22
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!!!
