If you like hipster hosts who whisper and space sounds while a dude is talking about Iran then this horribly over produced and terribly written podcast from NPR is for you!
Interesting topic but poorly told
Most confusing telling of fascinating story. I know this history but found this telling frustrating and hard to follow. Please don’t waste my time with 5 minutes of intro filler and then jump around like True Detective or other try too hard content that aspires to be artsy but fails because it doesn’t serve the story.
Fascinating topic, far too much irrelevant banter from the hosts, who seem to be trying to spoon-feed you information. Their insistence that they too knew nothing about this before researching the show sounds irritating rather than charmingly humble. Would expect better from NPR.
