I really enjoyed this podcast even though it was hard to listen to at times. I loved the fact that it was so to the point and not repetitive. Some podcasts rehash the same info over and over. This one doesn’t. Owen Bennett-Jones reported it so well and his voice is perfect. Thanks for all your...Read full review »

This was a piece of journalism right from the top tier. Brilliantly produced and put together, the unique cultural and political context explained brilliantly for the ordinary Joe. Although a tragic tale, it’s not one devoid of hope as Benazir Bhutto defiance and fortitude will remain a source...Read full review »

What a well-researched, well-told story about a brave woman and a politically corrupt state.
LizAnne S via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/26/22
This is the gold standard of podcasts. Absolutely perfect reporting of an absolutely horrific story.
Mia.11 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/11/22
An excellent piece of investigative work. Methodical. It also highlights mendacity of Pakistan’s populace, how inured have they become to jihadi attacks and every section of society is complicit.Unfortunate but true. Terrorist infrastructure has to be kept intact come what may

An amazing investigative project, that how one journalist can cover an independent and inclusive viewpoint. Much appreciated BBC
Shakeel Ahmed Arain via Apple Podcasts · Pakistan · 06/19/22
RIP Bhutto . The Lady deserved much better! Capital Investigative reporting!
NappyDresser via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/19/22
This is a condescending white man’s description of a part of Pakistani history. Parts of the podcast are interesting but the presenter is someone who has the sensibilities of a colonial time.
not George Costanza via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/15/22
Excellent podcast, although I didn’t agree with implication ‘Sarensar’ movements were suspect, he doesn’t run his hand across his throat, he is avoiding a camera to his right and is just habitually holding his throat,feeling awkward at is intrusion into the shot , you can then see him leaning...Read full review »

MaverickAbundance via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/09/22
For someone that was not real familiar with the assassination. I found this to be very informational!! I think the reporter did an excellent job of investigating and reporting on those investigations. I definitely better understand what went on and how her assassination came about. Great job to...Read full review »

I have just got into podcasts as I’m a delivery driver and I listened to this podcast in one day owen Bennett-jones thank you
kev pitt via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/04/22
A very important piece of Pakistans history. Would have given 5 stars but for the annoyingly pompous narration by the journalist . Second star docked for sticking with age old prejudices and biases when it comes to adopting a position towards Pakistan . Why not let journalism speak for itself ?...Read full review »

Breadman'84 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/23/21
Amazing podcast, fascinating story told in way that you can follow and even look into the wider politics of the time later on. I have listened to this a few times and each time I am glued.
Bleeper77 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/03/21
Over the top there is no mystery it does not matter who was responsible because at the time the whole country was getting blown to bits by terrorist it’s was extremely naive of her to return to Pakistan to take charge where she had already failed the people 2 times in a county which is so corrupt...Read full review »

Very important story to preserve for history and document fully. I’m listening in 2021, and have no concern that it was released in 2018 and thankful that I found it. The assassination was unconscionable and should be solved and prosecuted fully. Nevertheless, I do believe that Bhutto and her...Read full review »

Such an important story told in such detail. I’ve listened to this twice and loved it each time. Very interesting with lots of context, detail and integrity.

Incredible Background behind the assassination attempts Could never understand why the USA gave $Ms every year.
Ukmichael via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/05/20
Excellent investigation and a very sad story of a courageous woman who died too soon. Thank you for taking the time to tell her story. Excellent production. Thank you
acooton via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/25/20
Only 3 episodes in, but this is brilliant. The quality of the research is exceptional and the story is both fascinating and exceptionally important.
Bippsmeister via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/02/20
A great podcast, not least because what was a very complex political situation was made easy to follow in this series. Great work all round.
Chevyiam via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/15/20
The meticulous investigation explains the political instability in a country of 200 people, which they are doomed in poverty.
Arg11119 via Apple Podcasts · Greece · 09/21/20
Another woman killed . I guess it’s even more common place in countries where civil rights for all are sketchy .Terrifying to be born into a country that has a fledgling actual ‘justice’ system. Good the podcast will reach teach more people how a lot of non western countries work around politics...Read full review »

A profound, shocking, thought-provoking and revealing series that is both well researched and well produced.
Uneebb via Apple Podcasts · Pakistan · 07/24/20
This podcast was really interesting and sad. I learnt so much from this and would recommend it to teens and adults. The only reason I gave it 4/5 stars was because I was slightly confused about the outcome. Still, it was still good.
I.R.M.P via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/07/20
It’s very good, informative and moving. Highly recommended. There’s a little bit too much of the presenter and his activities. But listen and learn.

My words won’t do justice to describe how amazingly owen benett Jones has conducted this investigation.

Fantastic, deep, journalism. One of my favourites.
AJRWakelin via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 01/26/20
I’m new to non sports podcasts, in fact this is my first non sports podcast I’ve listened to. It was so engaging and loved how live interviews and real sound was incorporated. This kept it interesting, the length was right to, not too overwhelming.
Cjberns via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/17/20
Engaging reporting! One or the best! Thanks for research
