Excellent NYT podcast

I started this podcast last year before I purchased my NYT subscription. I wasn’t able to finish it last year and had forgotten about it until today.

This is so engaging and interesting. The content is obviously well researched but is personable and accessible. I loved hearing about an Iraqi man’s love for Metallica in between the hard-hitting heaviness of the subject.

Rukmini Callimachi could read a grocery list to me and I would want to listen. She has the absolute best voice for podcasts.

Intimate & Visceral

Rukmini Callimachi narrates this beautifully woven journalistic story. Amazing insight and deep dive into intimate vignettes of life inside/amongst the IS caliphate. Highly recommend to everyone and anyone!

Incredible reporting and very informative. I so appreciate being able to see and learn about a topic that I knew little about.
