"...Pecol take it in turns to host, and each tale is told in-depth across several episodes. While the podcast is based on historical research, dramatisation is used to bring these headline-making tales to life."

Jessa Crispin • The Spectator Jan 15, 2022

"Every season of Against the Odds, then, is a gift. The focus is on one tale of endurance and (sometimes) survival, of men and women pushed to their psychological and physical limits as they battle the elements or terrorists or hunger, and each can be listened to without going anywhere at all. No matter the historical setting, the hosts Mike Corey and Cassie De Pecol ramp up the suspense in sometimes delightfully cheesy ways, making it all exciting even if you already know the end results.
