Journalism at it’s best!

In-depth and well narrated. Appreciated the author responding to critics regarding romanticism of BB. Murder was her redemption...and that is such a profound thing for family and friends to process. Thank you!

Scary!

How prescient was Benazir when she advised the USA against funding jihadi fighters in Afghanistan against the soviets. We now have taliban and al Qaddafi

Very Comprehensive. All of us have to live with the conclusions; it's frustrating yet a good reminder of where we have come and where we need to go.

Love the podcast “The Assassination”

It’s gripping, and a deep dive into a society that is secretive and harsh. Hard to comprehend this living in the West.

Well produced series on a complex story

It’s a multi threaded story, told with ease and high quality production values. The short, direct, uncluttered sentence structure makes this an easy listen. Packed with rich imagery in each tightly produced episode, you’ll feel the emotion of her homecoming, the growing sense of unease approaching The Assassination, and the investigation to no where following it. OBJ does mention at the end of Ep. 10 why the corruption allegations against BB aren’t explored, and why he thinks it’s not important to this particular series on the assassination.

Fascinating coverage, frustrating reality

I was very captivated. Some part of me wondering if her reference to Musharraf was symbolic (to emphasis he didn’t do enough to protect her because she was in direct competition). Also her husband may have later taken a step back and avoided blaming the military to secure possible future for their son to run for the office? Possibly that was in her will and he didn’t want to make him a target at a very young age? I wonder how the All Rounder Imran Khan planning to tackle all these? Why is those terrorist breeding institutions are still standing? Such a mess. Very sad for average Pakistani citizens.

Really well done. Would have appreciated some discussion on how her gender was perceived and whether there was any validity to the corruption charges. Maybe a podcast on her life would be a good follow up!

So sad

Fabulous! Even if Musharraf was not responsible he had a responsibility to protect Benazir. So likely he is at the pointy end of the stick. So sad for Pakistan people and country. You could be amazing.
