This is an unbelievable podcast. It really gives you a a chilling glimpse behind the curtain of the type of people and the mindset that we’re dealing with across the world.

Questions I seem to have missed it about Huzaifah: 1. After his interview, he gets investigated, so and says he's out. How then is he still talking to them? 2. I thought the parents were in Canada, so why was the dad in Pakistan? 3. The family probably knew he was giving these interviews, so didn't they tell him to shut up or he'll go to jail? Why didn't he stop?

as a Muslim convert, I have absolutely no violent thoughts or aspirations. I only follow the true message of peace Islam brings. this podcast really helped me too understand why and how people end up joining terror groups. I'm sure there are few differences between ISIS and the Klan. I felt out of place trying to explain to people the circumstances behind joining groups like these and frankly, even trying to rationalize it can make some people think you're defending it. the two are not the same. this will help me to help others understand. jazak'allah

I've been lost for months now, no other podcast even comes close to comparing to Caliphate. Hands down, best podcast I've ever heard. Normally only podcast while driving/cleaning, but I lost sleep in order to finish episodes of Caliphate...

It's interesting how everyone reached different conclusions out of listening to this podcast. I think the message I'm getting is that if racism, bullying and any other type of opression and segregation didn't exist daesh would've never reached so many people. We need to normalise equality ASAP to make sure no one feels left out and joins them.

I appreciate this guy's honesty. He could pretend he's completely renounced his views and just say what they want to hear, but he's at least being real. He hasn't changed that much. And he's open about that. But on another note, seriously fantastic journalism. I don't think I've ever seen (or I guess heard) a better exploration of the radical Islamist phenomenon than this podcast.

Thank you for the incredible work you do. I find it incredibly important to know so much more. Our typical nightly news gives us glossy headlines, but your in-depth reporting is invaluable in helping us understand the people and what's truly occuring. My comments probably don't begin to accurately express what I mean, but please know that your hard work really is appreciated.
