Miranda Sawyer • The Guardian Feb 26, 2022

"An interesting new series from the BBC disinformation reporter Marianna Spring (is it me or does her job title sound as though Spring is dishing out the disinformation rather than investigating it?) More power to Spring for her truthful, empathetic reporting and for creating such an interesting series."

James Marriot • The Times UK Feb 25, 2022

"One of the many great things about Spring’s superb new BBC Sounds podcast Death by Conspiracy? is the way it shows how the vast and obscure forces of conspiracy interact with ordinary British life. A good reason not to listen to me but to Death by Conspiracy?, which is gripping, illuminating and sad. The best thing on BBC Sounds so far this year. I want a sequel."
