Critic Rating

The Illuminati - the infamous conspiratorial obsession - wasn't always that way. It was the work of one man that brought the illuminati from obscure to omnipresent - John Todd. In the 1970s, Todd burst into the public eye with tales of secret societies and dark rituals, claiming to be an ex-witch linked to human sacrifices among the elite. But as his tales spread and followers grew, his web of secrets unraveled, and ultimately - he vanished. 'Cover Up: The Conspiracy Tapes' exposes the twisted hidden story of a man whose myths influenced some of the most notorious events in...

"(Season: The Anthrax Threat) It's a thoughtful reconsideration of the anthrax attacks from 2001...all of the crime writers agreed the series should be placed alongside the better historical podcasts we've heard."

"(Season: Body Brokers) It's a straightforward take...we didn't need to hear over and over that Megan had big hair...but the podcast was pretty solid. It certainly had us asking questions."

"(Season: Pill Plot) Initially I found Raphael’s delivery — and this show’s production — overbearing. But everything settles down into an intriguingly necessary story of our times."

"Cover Up: Ministry of Secrets weaves a ripping yarn. Milton is a captivating podcast guide, winningly enthusiastic as he draws his listener into a postwar world...He is excellent at setting the scene of his contemporary investigation too...Production-wise this is first-rate too, with atmospheric soundscaping by Peregrine Andrews. Crabb cuts a rum figure, even in a story so steeped in naval lingo."

Miranda Sawyer • The Guardian Mar 11, 2023

"...the jolliest listen...This story – not one that would usually grip me, I have to say – quickly expands into a wider subject...Milton’s charming presentation and the excellent soundscaping by Peregrine Andrews are more than enough to keep you interested. Plus, not to reveal too much, the story really does go quite wildly rogue and comes right up to the present day. Once you hear that Crabb’s ex-wife was sure he’d gone to the Soviet Union, you’re hooked."
