Miller, the first FBI agent arrested for espionage against his own country.  

When Miller is spotted with a suspected Soviet spy and former FBI Informant, it sets off a chain of events that will threaten national security, shake public faith in the institutions meant to protect Americans, destroy a family, and derail careers. Featuring the voices of Congressman Adam Schiff, Richard W. Miller’s family, former US Attorney Robert Bonner, and veteran reporter Linda Deutsch - and based off of extensive research, including Miller’s own prison diaries and trial transcripts spanning 7 years. Expect intrigue, suspense, and a modern exploration of a remarkable past event.

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.

WellProduced

This production is very well presented, I enjoyed listening to the story and could easily believed either side of the case as it seems to remain relatively neutral throughout, the bottom line is did he do it to the level as claimed and with what motivation or was he used as an example? Definitely worth the read and the plot keeps you interested

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!

Heavy Going

I love spy stories such as Aldrich Ames & Robert Hansen,but to be perfectly honest,I felt this particular story extremely heavy going,took me a good few days to finish it,not sure I'd listen to it again....

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.

Way too long

Repetitive. Boring. Repetitive and boring. Six episodes would have been enough. Helped me fall asleep

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.
