Specknacob ,

Great throughout

This is a great podcast series , very well narrated and with fascinating insights from experts.

Thoroughly enjoying it, great job!

brave new girl ,

Gripping

Brilliantly narrated by Sarah and Emma- what a story! I was gripped all the way through. I love how they bring on a psychotherapist to help us understand the character traits of the con artist at the centre of this scam, so that we can avoid being conned in our own lives. A brilliant series, I highly recommend it!

mrs single ,
