  • Episode 1: The Worst Thing You Can Imagine

    Nov 24 2020

    For decades, the FBI has kept the KGB from infiltrating their ranks. Until now. When FBI agent Richard W. Miller and Russian emigre Svetlana Ogorodnikova are spotted near the Soviet consulate in San Francisco, the news travels all the way to Bureau Headquarters. Within days, a completely unprecedented investigation is launched in order to answer the urgent question: is there a mole in the FBI?

  • Episode 2: To Catch a Mole

    Nov 24 2020

    The investigation of alleged KGB Spy Richard W. Miller - code named Operation Whipworm - is missing a smoking gun. Hundreds of agents, thousands of man hours, all under absolute secrecy, and still no ironclad proof that Miller is a spy. That changes when Miller and Svetlana buy tickets to Vienna for a meeting with the Soviets. Now, the FBI has 16 days to nail its suspects. But as the Bureau gets ready to close in, Miller does the one thing they never expected.

  • Episode 3: The Double Agent

    Nov 24 2020

    Three months before anyone suspected him of espionage, a phone call changed Richard W. Miller’s life. The caller told Miller she had information on the KGB’s activities. Miller was on the Soviet Counterintelligence squad, but just barely. After years of screwups he wasn’t the most popular agent. This was his chance to turn things around. Miller got approval for the meeting. And nothing -for him or the FBI -would ever be the same. [Contains sensitive content]

Repetitive at best

After episode three you hear the entire story all over again. They must have gotten paid per episode. After episode five I just skipped on to the epilogue.

Repetition in place of content.

The first half of the episodes seem to repeat the same information with different timelines revealing just a tiny bit of new information. The narrative is not that compelling so the changing event sequence is to keep you interested?

The resolution is somewhat anticlimactic.

Amazing story! I had no idea this happened!

What a cool true story! I love the way it is told and how you don’t know if he’s really a double agent or not! This should be a movie.

American History Made Radio Drama

This was an amazing retelling of the Richard W. Miller case and his story. I truly enjoyed the personal details of how each historical figure involved had a level of humanity to them and were tragically flawed. Excellent audio quality, truly rich in historical fact, and expertly composed.

captivating!

This story is so well written! It's like the author is pulling on a thread to unravel the story and with each pull, something different is exposed.

Complicated but Very Interesting

I'm not the smartest tool in the shed but I found it hard to keep up with. That could have been my fault. However, I found myself wanting to keep listening. It was fascinating, sad, amazing, unbelievable and supposedly true. I loved it.

A little longer than needed, but still enjoyable

The episode format meant that periodically bits of the story were repeated in multiple episodes, and I generally felt like it could have been told in a few fewer episodes, however it wasn’t egregious and kept me engaged.

Fascinating Account of the Spy Trial

This was a podcast about an FBI agent who was put on trial for espionage. A tangled web of sex, lies and misinformation and the "Mormon Mafia" in the FBI ensues. Actors voice various people involved. Miller himself was complex and an unlikely suspect. Excellently produced with a great cast and fascinating narrative, this is a must listen for true crime lovers. The damage done was not what you would expect. A riveting listen.

Podcast Lite

I was in LA at the time this all went down and remember some of the news stories, and I knew a guy who was on the periphery of the case. I was interested in learning more and putting the events in context with my own goings on at the time. I did get some of that, but was disappointed overall. The narration and voices were good but the grittiness of a case like this was missing, and it sometimes felt out of synch. This could have been done in half the time, it felt like they were stretching it out with repetition just to make it last longer.

I've listened to a few of Audible's podcasts and generally find them informative and well done. This one is okay, but not up to others I've listened to.

stick with it. it gets better.

you know how an american prime time documentary will spend 5 minutes going over the story thats already been explained then 2 minutes progressing the narrative. and then another 5 pandering to the lowest form of the english language just to make sure we get it. yes its like that. good narration though.

Muy interesante, engancha.

Me ha enganchado por completo. Muy interesante ver desde el punto de vista actual lo que pasaba realmente durante la guerra fría. Bien narrado y un puntazo poder contar con las voces de algunas de las personas involucradas, y sabiendo de antemano quiénes eran actores y quienes no. Recomendable.

A good lesson in life.

Totally absorbing and at first I wondered whether or not it was going to be too long. However, every detail was covered and all the threads and characters are brought together better than in many novels I have read. Processes in the law are well explained without being condescending. The narration is excellent and some fabulous voices feature!
As for the story... the predicament of the protagonist seems to be mostly brought upon himself as he repeatedly fails to understand the impression he makes on those around him, and consequently learns nothing and does not modify his own behaviour. He makes the same mistakes over and over. The price he pays in the end, though, would seem to many to be overly harsh. But it's too late. We only get one chance at life - be careful not to mess it up!

Fascinating story, slow start

Absolutely worthwhile your time, though for the first two episodes I was not best pleased with the repetitve pace and twisting structure of the storytelling. Very glad I stuck with it (finishing at 4am!!): a part of history worth knowing and reflecting upon.

Fascinating and compelling.

This was really well presented and a thoroughly compelling listen. I was so intrigued that I found myself conducting further research into the R.W. Miller case. I would definitely recommend this series.

Truly Enthralling

I loved this podcast. Spy stories and what they did is always interesting especially when you hear the CIA was run by Mormons and because of this, this so called spy was able to do what he did. He effectively was a Mormon misfit who wanted to be James Bond was allowed by the agency to nearly filfill his dreams and then was prosecuted because it showed the agency for what it was.
