"Atomic Hobo is in the finest tradition of the sort of independent podcasting that thrived before the big corporations rolled onto the scene. The great downside of nerd-driven independent podcasting was the presentation style, which I think of as the freestyle drone."

Fiona Sturges • Financial Times Jun 2, 2018

"While rooted in fact, much of the podcast sounds like the plot of a disaster movie — though, given the daftness of much nuclear planning, there are diversions into comedy as well. But if the production is occasionally on the creaky side, the research is impeccable. McDowall’s podcast is an eye-opening and gripping account of a world braced for catastrophe."
