Although the story is undoubtably an interesting and tenaciously reported, BBC Sounds stumbled over its toes when it came to the production elements of this podcast. The music was very distracting and so so repetitive. Stock clips from One Coin promotional materials were overused throughout the...Read full review »

Hi there, I am from Uganda. I have fallen in love with the effort you guys put in to pull off this very informative investigation. About One Coin, I do know a person or two here that were part of the scam. THE RULE OF THUMB is, If it’s too good to be true, then... Thank you BBC.

The story behind this is really cool. They waste A LOT of time getting to the point though. This could all be done well and compellingly in one or two episodes. Episode 7 is just them walking around showing people a picture of her and 99% of them have no idea who she is. Sub par story telling in...Read full review »

I LOVED this podcast, great information and explaining crypto to person who doesn’t know much about it

An incredible story, impeccably researched and brilliantly delivered. Essential listening.

Has it been effected by COVID?

Not the best journalism or editing but well intentioned and a cracking story, definitely worth a listen.

Can you give an update as to when another episode is likely? i.e. in a fee weeks? or months? Just trying to manage my own excitement :)

I love the music. The people who don’t are lame. The story is so interesting and well done. I think he is very professional but is trying to make it entertaining, and not dull, and he does an excellent job of that. Making it entertaining does not make it bad journalism. Podcasts are a unique...Read full review »

Very relevant in today’s world. MLMs scare the S*** out of me because they can destroy people’s lives. Do your due diligence before investing!

Great listening. I look forward to hearing more.

I binged the whole show…great podcast and reporting.
HZBaskin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/22/21
…und gleichzeitig deutlich macht, was passiert, wenn man einem Krypto-Asset wie OneCoin und seiner Krypto-Queen blind vertraut, ohne die dahinterstehende Technik (es gab keine!) zu verstehen und zu durchschauen. Die Krypto-Queen erinnert an einen Führer aus einer sehr dunklen Zeit in Deutschland...Read full review »

The story is interesting and seems to be well researched but…. the music is so horrible. I could not stand the wailing. Had to stop listening.
JaneNE77 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/13/21
Well researched and interesting. Sometimes the podcast can get a bit repetitive but it is very captivating.

A good concept and very informative. The Bulgarian choir music is so distracting that I can’t concentrate on the narrator at times.

Good Job! Love it!

What a fantastic series, what a great series to accompany lots of long walks to lighten lockdown. Such an interesting story, well presented. Would highly recommend.
pokemwq via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/18/21
I hate how all these podcast report but just add a bunch of fluff. When the story is complete, the reporters still are no where closer than where they started. Waste of time
Paintcan21 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/12/21
There is an interesting story to be told here, and probably more than enough information to fill the run time, but the podcast has a massive amount of unnecessary (and awful) music, repeated sound bites, and redundant summaries. It’s mostly filler and the content that is there seems to only...Read full review »

Halfway in, thrilling so far, top work
K lond via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 08/03/21
I don’t usually binge anything, but this was just so fascinating! Such a shame that so many people were conned out of billions of dollars. Really well reported and a great reminder to remain vigilant- if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!
JakesterPDX via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/31/21
This is brilliant and I’m Glad you’ve raised awareness and hope it save a lot of pain for families and vulnerable people.
Sunshine_088 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/25/21
I stumbled on this after a great BBC podcast experience. This podcast, however, is unprofessional both as a podcast and as a piece of journalism. The host is self indulgent in his questioning and weak in his execution of actually reporting relevant information. Lots of leading questions and...Read full review »

I don’t usually review podcasts but this one was worth it. I listen to this podcast series in two days! Well worth the time.
Nlandi27 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/08/21
Can’t wait to listen to more episodes. I love the music and your professionalism. Big hugs from Australia
Carol GD via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/08/21
I’m hanging on, but only just. Just listened to a ridiculous interview with a postman and others as they sought Ruja. Really, what was that all about? Way too much padding.
Infant Roctet via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/07/21
Please, the content is good but you're putting waaaay too many sound effects and music beds. Hearing disabled really suffer with this junk! Seriously!? We dont need your ringing bells and video game music. The reporting just disappears into a mess of audible junk.Read full review »
Willniccolls via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/07/21
Wonderful storyline. From start to finish it was exceptionally done. The problem? The music is literally like nails on a chalkboard. It plays too loud and in ways you almost can’t avoid it. Awful doesn’t begin to describe it.
DubbaDeezy84 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/05/21
Great podcast- great investigative journalism. Highly recommend.
Opinari via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/04/21
Can’t wait for the next episode, hope that’s coming soon.
RobWdck via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/01/21
Its a great investigative report and a lot of work. A lot of repetition and some episodes go nowhere because everything was well hidden. I agree that he specifically is not very professional for the BBC which I respect and as an American find that is very credible and reputable source. Also he...Read full review »

I don’t want to hear the music interludes without talking. I’m here to hear the story.
tronix304 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/26/21
Really gripping and exciting story, a really well crafted approach to storytelling journalism. Please can we have the next episodes?! 🙏🏼
ClaraFCN via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/23/21
An unnecessary recap at the beginning of every episode and repetitive, padded content. This can be edited down. This podcast is of the style where the host has inserted himself into the story, it’s not about the CryptoQueen herself but the host’s haphazard hunt for her. I listened to 3 eps &...Read full review »
roodax via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/23/21
The only reason I imagine this is highly rated is because it's core is a good idea: exposing a scam. And make no mistake, Onecoin is a scam. But the podcast is mostly over produced fluff. Every episode is is mainly about the team's experience as they made the podcast. Information on the...Read full review »

A compelling story which proves the adage- if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is. Such a con!
PMcFlegal via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/26/21
exciting, well researched, BBC at their best
pendlerS12 via Apple Podcasts · Switzerland · 05/23/21
Where did the episodes go after August?
FlyerFan17 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/19/21
There are many good podcasts out there, but this one is outstanding. What courageous journalists. And they actually find out new stuff, thanks to great detective work. The human tragedy is also captured well (and humanely), for all those involved. Thanks a lot!
Jansa223 via Apple Podcasts · Belgium · 05/19/21
Too corny
@JackShih via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/18/21
I listened to the whole podcast from beginning to end without stopping. It’s a fascinating story of a cult-like scam that has affected and devastated people across the world. Beware people who talk a big story, particularly when it comes to money. Great reporting from Jamie Bartlett and Georgia...Read full review »

This is a great story told well. The moral of the story, if it’s God to be true, it probably isn’t. Listen and learn.
