It's a really good podcast, but could be improved in the following ways: 1: Audio quality - could easily be improved with a new mic and some EQing. 2: Editing - the recent episodes have whole sentences repeated!

Live Interview With Author Jason Wilson at CrimeCon London
1786
At CrimeCon London last weekend, I had the pleasure of interviewing author Jason Wilson about his excellent new book, 'The Old Man And Me'. In front of a live audience, we chatted about why he wrote his book about growing up and living with his gangster father.

The book is no nonsense and talks about the reality of crime, not the glamourised versions you hear about elsewhere, and in this interview Jason was very open about his life. I hope you enjoy and there is link to the book below.

The Secret History of Flight 149
2251
Imagine boarding a flight thinking you’re going on holiday, but instead you get taken hostage by Saddam Hussein. 

It might sound far-fetched, but in August 1990 this really happened to the passengers and crew of British Airways Flight 149. 

What followed has been dubbed the most shocking government cover-up of the last thirty years, and now there’s a new podcast about it. In this new podcast you’ll hear directly from the hostages - the people used as human shields by the Iraqi regime.

Listen to episode one here today.

For episode two and beyond, you should go and search for The Secret History of Flight 149 in your podcast app. If you’re listening on Apple podcasts, then it’s also available ad-free on the Crowd Stories channel.

The podcast this week, from Essex in 2015, looks at the activity of one young group of vigilantes. I look at how in their aim to out 'perverts', they ended up using extreme violence which left one innocent man dead.....

Introducing 'The Apology Line' - from Wondery
401
If you could call a number and say you’re sorry, and no one would know…what would you apologize for? For fifteen years, you could call a number in Manhattan and do just that. 

This is the story of the line, and the man at the other end who became consumed by his own creation. He was known as “Mr. Apology.” As thousands of callers flooded the line, confessing to everything from shoplifting to infidelity, drug dealing to murder, Mr. Apology realized he couldn’t just listen. He had to do something, even if it meant risking everything. 

From Wondery the makers of Dr. Death and The Shrink Next Door, comes a story about empathy, deception and obsession. Marissa Bridge, who knew Mr. Apology better than anyone, hosts this six episode series.
