It's a shame they decided to tell this story from the (now discredited) "ISIS guy"'-s PoV, rather than from the victim's PoV. It's clear the repoter has great connections and knowledge of the conflict - could have been a truly great podcast

not getting to the point quick enough, a lot of elements just to dramatize and draw out the story, also I find it very distracting to have a multitude of audio sources mixed together and interfading.
