Maybe 6 out 10, not so shore. The story at the beginning was so exciting, but after 4 or 5 episodes I noticed that it's not as cool as it should be. Too general about main events and too detailed about unimportant matters. With no doubt Jack Barsky was a kind of person with unique capabilities, but almost the action part of the whole story was removed and became boring 😴.

What a narcissistic piece of shit. I listened for 12 episodes while this a-hole describes himself as a hero of the revolution; the smartest, the most revered by his government blah blah blah. From listening to his version of his awesomeness, I'm left with the understanding that this man played both sides of the iron curtain to his advantage. He left his women and children behind with nary a glance backward. His oozing, self-satisfied gushing over his daughter Chelsea as the reason he chose to stay in the U.S. insults the intelligence of a moron. Jack shows no love for anyone except himself. Poor Chelsea is just a pawn in this sociopath ridiculooffus attempt to appear human, nevermind all his other children and women who are insignificant in this assholes celebration of himself. ugh. I need a million showers to wash off the stench of this monsters story.

Great podcast so far. My mother is from the DDR en literally EVERYONE in our circle of acquaintances/friends/ family knew what the Stasi was up to. I mean half the country turned out to be a secret "Spitzel"/informant. So for Barsky to claim he didn't and just saw them as a force of good reeks of disingenuity, even if he lived in the "Tal der Ahnungslosen". People knew.
