  • Hansen

    Excellent! Research was meticulous. Each episode featured someone who had known or worked with Hansen. Interesting into the reasons the FBI did not catch this man sooner. So Hansen proved he was so smart while he destroyed his family and hurt his country. Rather the question “How did that work for you?”

  • Good story but…

    This is a great story and it is told well. I do hope I am not the only one commenting on the misogyny of Hanssen’s best friend stating he never watched them with out Robert’s permission. It was Bonnie’s permission that was needed.

    Utterly binge worthy, incapable of turning episodes off, most intense 24 hours spent listening this deep dive. The waves of collateral damage by this enigma is unfathomable.
