Rafhh ,

Such Arrogance!

I enjoyed this show. However, the last episode quote at approximately the 44 minute mark was too much. “Most of the listeners of this show will never purchase a piece of fine art in their lives.” Wow, just wow.

Stick with the Story

While the first episode is a little slow, by the middle of the story it’s an absolutely fascinating crime scene of fake art. Baldwin is an excellent host and narrator. Thanks!

Well Done

I recently watched a Netflix documentary about this gallery. I enjoyed it but this doc has way more info and really well done. Only half way through so I cannot speak for the last episode but the low overall rating does not reflect the show but most likely personal issues with Alec Baldwin
