What made the experience of listening to Stalin's Secret Agents the most enjoyable?

....All those U.S. WWII policies that don't make sense. Why was the U.S. so solicitous of Nationalist China so to foment war with Japan, only to three years later, dismiss China as feudal and corrupt? Why the insistence on unconditional surrender for both Germany and Japan? Why was Lend Lease to the Soviets so generous with nothing given in return? Why did the U.S. encourage the Soviets to enter the war against Japan, though the U.S. was on the cusp of victory? Why the vengeful Morgenthau Plan, that spurred the Germans to desperate fighting against the Western Allies, though the Red Army to the East was sweeping down?

Defenders of the Roosevelt Administration need conjure sundry and tortured explanations for how each of these inane policies were in the U.S. interest. The readers of Stalin's Secret Agents will, like Occam, have one explanation.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Stalin's Secret Agents?

The Truman Justice rigging of the Grand Jury.
