On the closing commentary: Agreed that the script is so horribly truncated to fit the time limit the writer has effectively had to cover the equivalent of a Jack Reacher novel, whilst having to introduce the audience to the lead character. It's so obvious that a two (or more) part version would be better, especially because the book is fast-paced and offers multiple cliffhanger moments that really It's worth discussing what sort of constraints in the USA's radio businesses prevented that. FWIW the lead character being bored in London after returning from South Africa is definitely not because he's a "businessman". That was the wildest part of the British Empire then; the British equivalent of the American Wild West. It's also a US 'tell' that his name is mispronounced throughout. Hann-eye, not Hann-ay (as in 'hay'). It's a bit puzzling for a Brit why they couldn't just read it as written. But then we have the deeper mystery of why Americans struggle with correctly pronouncing the names of our various '-shire' counties when it's the same 'shur' sound as in the US State 'New Hampshire'?

I wish there was an app that would the decelerate speech .Tired of listening to what sounds like the a disclaimer at the end of a commercial.
Ran out of time, I guess.
Loved this so much!! Thank you for allowing us to enjoy it. Caron Brown Little Elm, TX
sound quality on this is basically un-listenable
I love it 🥰
does anyone know what the sports car is that the guy crashed in? I can't hear it well enough to search but I'm really curious!
In rural areas the school districts use the radio stations for school cancellations and such to let parents know in those area's. I remember getting up on high snowfall days and listening to the radio for school cancellations then I would climb back in bed..lol
yes I agree ... the PR in that episode against the woman, way over the top...she can build a bomb but passes out....please most women are cooler under pressure....just think of any men when their wives are in labor.
I love how Johnny always gives his helpers if any a cut of the commission. Now a days if Johnny was on the job he would take the money and run the hell with anyone else!
