Miranda Sawyer - The Guardian - Dec 5, 2020

"And another podcast full of secrets. In Bed of Lies, we hear from seven different women who formed relationships with undercover policemen who joined leftwing activist groups in the 1990s and early 2000s. The practice began being exposed in 2010, but the effects are still felt by the women involved. We’re a few episodes into this gripping, complicated tale. Each man seems unique and yet they all act in the same way with the women they seduce, gradually ensnaring them into a life that seems wonderful but is built on pathological dishonesty. Their stories are shocking and heartrending. This is a must-listen series."
