I enjoyed these podcasts. Once again, a range of events and subjects are covered so every episode is different. I especially enjoyed the episode about the ghost army during WWII created to fool the German's. I'd never heard of this before and found this really fascinating. I also loved the episode about Chernobyl. This was chilling especially since authorities did not admit there had been an accident for some time and let people go about their business as normal, further and further exposing themselves to radiation. This chilled me. I also enjoyed the episode about Nelson Mandela's trial. These were the most interesting and therefore the most enjoyable episodes.
