I took the time to listen to 10 episodes. A waste of time. Everything covered is already well documented and investigated, I learnt nothing new. Just a lot of talk about nothing. Apart from an interview with a lying jihadist wannabe and a poor rape victim having to speak and confronted her IS captor on the phone, (poor girl) there is no real content.
While I appreciate that covering IS is not easy, there is zero substance to this investigation

Great start then got boring

The first few episodes were fantastic and riveting, but after there was some doubt about the Canadian, the story switched and got boring. It was felt like a bait and switch.

Sensational Beginning.

As a student, I feel as though there is a very rigid approach to talking about terrorism.
The topic itself, unfortunately, is actually so full and in order to objectively approach it I have craved something to balance my studies.
This podcast does that for me. It shows a side to this topic that people should hear, in fact, they need to hear it, because the fear spread by terrorism is only the surface. The iceberg is bigger below the water.
