Hooked on Freddie

Society & CultureTrue CrimeDocumentary

Did one man’s friendship with a dolphin go way – way – too far? It’s 1987 and the British seaside town of Amble has seen much better days. So when a wild bottlenose dolphin nicknamed Freddie appears in the harbour, it feels like a miracle. Everyone wants to swim with him. But Freddie chooses one person above all others: Alan Cooper, a dedicated animal rights activist committed to freeing captive dolphins. Then Alan’s friendship with Freddie is turned against him and a devastating accusation spirals out of control.

  • Sounds interesting but the deliverance…

    I wanted to listen to this podcast but am put off listening, as other reviewers have said we aren’t four year olds.. a different presenter could really ‘sell’ the story.

  • Puts the ‘pod’ in podcast

    Intriguing story, well told, you wouldn’t believe it if it wasn’t true. Raises questions about humans’ relationships with animals on all fronts. Narrator comes in for a bit of stick in the reviews but for once I thought the cheeky script actually worked. Leaves room for the viewer to make their mind up. A good companion piece for BlackFish.

  • Worth Listening to

    A very fascinating podcast that was thoroughly and even handedly presented. The narrators style was to tell it almost like a children’s story but given the unusual nature of the events surrounding Freddie it works.

  • The host is a problem

    Great story but I don’t need you to tell it like I’m a four year old.
