Wanted to love this so much ...
The story itself is so fascinating and was really looking forward to listening but the hosts ramble on like late night radio talk back, they interrupt interviews with their theories. Have twice tried to stick with it and finish the series but I'll probably end up buying the book about the heist they plug a fair bit instead. Sadly I lose the will to live after half an hour...
