The Spy Who

5.0/5

Critic Rating

These are stories you were never meant to hear. The invisible but vital work of the world’s intelligence services: secret operatives playing to very different rules. The Spy Who, hosted by Indira Varma and Raza Jaffrey, takes you deep inside that shadow world to meet spies who risked everything in the national interest – or, sometimes, their own.


Critic Reviews

Score: 5

Scott Bryan • Podcast Rex Mar 10, 2024

"...features storytelling with immersive sound production and the hosts acting the various characters and what they have said. It is essentially like being read a bedtime story but with a scale and production of a Radio 4 play."

Hannah Verdier • The Guardian Feb 22, 2024

"It’s irresistibly film-like, with dramatic recreations of scenes from the time."
