Fascinating podcast!

For the most part I found this an informative and timely podcast. However, in episode three the host references the Hollywood movie “Argo” when talking about the Iran hostage crisis. Considering that the movie takes considerable artistic license with the story, I would have expected him to mention “Our Man in Tehran” - an excellent 2013 documentary about the 1979 events. I found this oversight somewhat disappointing. Otherwise it seems to be a fairly thorough telling of the case to date, and I look forward to hearing more episodes as events unfold.

Very cool insights

Lots of the periphery details and sets up the story with all the necessary context so it makes so much more sense. 👏👏👏

Good podcast! Gets you up to speed

I definitely enjoyed listening to this podcast, not only because it’s a great story, but also because now I can follow the case as it unfolds and know what all the articles are talking about. This is one of those key current even issues that we should keep ourselves informed about.
Sometimes it did sound like it was lacking a bit more substance and depth and I wanted to know more details, go further beneath the surface - but wasn’t sure how myself.
What also caught my attention is the weird pronunciation of the name “Igor” like
“eye-gor” - is that how he pronounces his name ?? Never heard that.
Otherwise worth a listen for sure! Thanks hosts for a good time.
