One of the BEST

Terrific production of a fascinating story. I was riveted throughout. This is one of a few exemplary podcasts that define podcasting—more like radio drama. The best are usually British, just like TV.

So Good, I’m tempted to relisten

This podcast is fascinating, you go in thinking one way and leave a tad bit conflicted.

It’s well researched, written, told and produced.

I preferred the Season 2, but Season 1 is interesting as well. Looking forward to the next Season!

Things aren’t quite as they seem.

Do we remember things as they were or as we’d like them to have been? This is a fascinating tale of the search for truth during a shameful time when there were willing participants in the extermination of the European Jews. The perpetrators go underground only to be “rehabilitated. “ It has twists and turns that make the listener wonder if the real story will ever come to light. The soundscape adds to the drama. Superb. (And there’s a real medical mystery subtext that underpins the investigation. )
