Critic Reviews

Score: 4.8

Jake Greenberg - PodcastReview.org - Feb 24, 2021

"From its opening episode I’m Not A Monster is compelling and propulsive. The creative team behind the show constructs it as a highly reported profile of one American woman, rather than attempting to generalize the tendencies and conditions that lead a US resident to join ISIS."

Miranda Sawyer - The Guardian - Jan 23, 2021

"Baker has amazing access to those involved, including Isis fighters (though I don’t think he should have interviewed Sally’s child), yet this gripping podcast allows you to make up your own mind."
