    Episode 353 - Chernobyl: The Power Station That Ended a Nation

    Episode 353 - Chernobyl: The Power Station That Ended a Nation

    The world’s most infamous nuclear disaster officially killed just thirty-one people, but in reality it’s death toll is incalculable. Raining radioactive debris over a city, and melting the skin off the on-site workers, the explosion and subsequent meltdown at Chernobyl reactor 4 is one of the most devastating man-made accidents in history. 




    This is the story of how fear, bureaucracy, and lies first brought down a nuclear power station, which then brought down a nation.

    Episode 352 - Over the Thin Blue Line: the Undercover Police Scandal

    Episode 352 - Over the Thin Blue Line: the Undercover Police Scandal

    Imagine finding out that your partner of six years – the love of your life, the father of your children – had never existed. That during all of your most intimate moments, they’d been spying on you, taking notes to report back to their superiors. That’s what happened to dozens of innocent British women in 2011, when they uncovered the SDS – a super-secretive unit of London’s Met Police.

    To infiltrate groups of (mostly harmless) left-wing activists, these officers went undercover, routinely starting long-term sexual relationships with female members, for years at a time. They groomed these women, sometimes even fathering children, only to eventually disappear without a trace. H&S plunge into the gross, ethically murky waters of undercover relationships.

    ShortHand: The KKK

    ShortHand: The KKK

    Far and away one of the most deeply evil groups in US history, the Klu Klux Klan are the best-known purveyors of white racism in the United States.

    The OG far-right trolls have been responsible for countless deaths and acts of discrimination, but where did it all begin? And why are they all called grand wizards and grand dragons, like some kind of ultra-racist D&D party? This is the ShortHand.

    Episode 351 - North Korean Abductions: Korean Career Couriers

    Episode 351 - North Korean Abductions: Korean Career Couriers

    Kidnapping might seem like an odd solution to low levels of education, but for The Democratic People's Republic of Korea it seemed like a perfect plan. Whisk away international intelligentsia to your hermit kingdom and reprogram them to become perfect North Korean citizens, capable of pushing forward your scientific endeavours – or more importantly, directing a cult classic knock-off Godzilla movie. 

    Unfortunately, it is a plan that hasn’t gone down overly well with the rest of the world. So how did it happen? And is it still going on today?

Fun Listen

I love the stories (many I've never heard before which is amazing) and the hostesses are a hoot! My only real complaint is the commercials are crazy loud in contrast to the show so I constantly have to toggle my volume. A small price to pay.

Babushkas of Chernobyl

I’m writing about the Chernobyl episode. If this is a good topic you enjoy, watch the Babushkas of Chernobyl. These women are awesome!

Anyone leaving fewer than 5 stars is an absolute trollop.
