"In charting out his remarkable story, the Real Dictators podcast feeds your mind’s eye with rich detail, soundscapes and interviews, bringing alive the period when the tyrant walked the earth...The stories of the ‘hidden lives’ of the other dictators are no less fascinating — or chilling, making for hours of absorbing listening. Narration is by actor Paul McGann of Dr Who and Luther fame. His voice is spellbinding, capturing your attention entirely."

"My personal takeaway from this podcast is the truly breathtaking scale, and cruelty of some of the atrocities created by each dictator. The show in essence caused me to pause, and think much wider & broader."

"What’s so good about it? It goes into its subjects in real depth, helped out by the expertise of the interviewees, and uses sound effects to try to put you right in the centre of the events it’s narrating."
