Really odd planning of the podcast. It's like you are overhearing a conversation between people that know the subject inside out. They never introduce the characters of the story, so you are treated to name after name with little or no context. Confusing and unclear. A shame.

Think the storyboard needs to be revisited. We want to know the juicy exciting details about how the heist took place first then discuss it! Bored now. (And I take umbrance at author Ulrich who inferred people from lower incomes wouldn't be so familiar with some of the artists. I am a cleaner with lower income yet earned a high A Level in Art History and also have a degree. So you can shove your judgemental ideas...) And on that note... see ya!

3 ad breaks for a 45 minute podcast? You have to be kidding me. This is the first time I think someone might be doing a podcast for the money. I just finished the 3rd episode and they still haven’t covered the heist in detail (“we’ll get to that later”) but did spend the entire episode on a musician who may be at best tangentially-related to the theft. Each week it feels like the hosts are just winging it with no clue what they’re talking out. Yup, I’m out.

interesting podcast! but there's just too many ad breaks! the first episode is only 30 minutes yet there's ads before it starts, and three more ad breaks before it ends.. how are people supposed to get invested in the story when its constantly getting interrupted with so many ad breaks....if they think it's ok to have 4 advertising breaks within 30 minutes then the future full length episodes will probably have even more, and to that I say no thank you. I listen to tons of podcasts and I can tolerate 1 or 2 breaks on an episode which is an hour or more in length, but FOUR ad breaks in 30 minutes??....that is just silly, and it's a sure sign of hosts who care more about making money than getting their story across...and it's turned me off wanting to subscribe and tune in to future episode's.
