Brilliant

This is probably the best podcast I have listened to in a long time. The narrator is so good at telling the story. Very clear and the description of the whole feud is second to none. I highly recommend this podcast. 👍

Crime journalists at their best

As a consumer of news, my knowledge was at the extreme edge. This podcast educated, informed and entertained the listener throughout. The quote “Bad things happen when good people do nothing” springs to mind.

Irish authorities it seems only react when they are embarrassed internationally.

I have no hesitation in recommending this podcast to anyone. Brilliant.
