@MortenVSchroeder Thanks for the great recommendation. It's more visual than a Tarantino movie. Also extremely informative and well made podcast.

Caliphate attempts to go beyond media headlines on ISIS and ask the sort of questions that aren’t being asked enough- how and why there are some who are born in the West yet decide to join ISIS ranks. Making efforts to understand these different perspectives is not only topical but is surely an essential prerequisite to any lasting resolution. My only criticism would be some episodes feel a bit diluted but that might because of the heavy nature of some of the content.

Extremely well produced series on ISIS, with the reporter behind the scenes with ISIS members and following several stories throughout. Slightly disappointing ending but otherwise very good.

Super interesting insight into ISIS through in-depth journalism and first-hand encounters. The journalist is trying to track down a former ISIS soldier and you are following her on her quest to solve this mystery. I bingelistened to this podcast and got through them all in just about 2 weeks! The first half is a 10, the second half is an 9. Overall its a 10!
