thank you Rukmini for making me realize that even life in India is a privileged one. thank you for reminding me what I have to stand up for. I am astounded by your bravery, assertion. we need more of you in our world. ( have lots of children or adopt me, I am a fully functional person doesn't need much except the glory of your being.)

Everyone has THAT podcast that they will just listen to over and over. This is mine. I served in the Marines and I can say Rukmini is not only one of the bravest but also one of the smartest people I've read about. She's pure inspiration

Sure what he did is terrible and he's a bad person, but what scares me the most is the ease with which the reporters obtain confidential information that should be protected. He is an individual with potential involvement with ISIS, but he's not convinced. First the reporters obtain confidential data from Pakistan, then US. This is scary and it doesn't even bother them! Ok this isn't surprising for Pakistan as it's rather corrupt, but I'm amazed it's so easy for US and nobody goes to prison for this! Next thing you know Rukmini, your privacy is invaded in talk show with 3rd parties finding out your tax returns, financial records and all kinds of private data about you from friendly government officials! This is scary, I'm amazed you don't see a problem with this!

Peter Fabian no. i wouldn't and i do feel ya. no need to defend your moral judgment... it's not unlike my own(tho from what I've listened to they have not shared details like ssn or tax data with their audience-which would be insanity, also super illegal). but what I am specifically curious about is whether or not one or more, real, codified laws have been broken by the investigators. wasnt coming atcha and if anyone else can answer the query please chime in.

"zip recruiter. finds the right people for the right job. Zip recruiter- smartest way to hire" And exactly right after an ISIS recruit stabs someone in excruciating graphic detail. Is ISIS using Zip recruiter too or what? Could this ad not be played at the start or the end?

Avid podcast listener and I'm going to make a big call here: just as good as serial season 1, if not better.

The production quality is really great but the subject is very disturbing and alarming.
