A weekly History, True Crime and Society podcast featuring Jim O’Grady
 4 people rated this podcast
While the devastating images of the 9/11 attacks are seared into our national collective memory, most of the events that led up to that day took place out of public view. Over eight episodes, Blindspot: The Road to 9/11, brings to light the decade-long “shadow struggle” that preceded the attacks. New episodes drop every Wednesday.

Hosted by WNYC reporter Jim O’Grady and based on HISTORY’s television documentary Road to 9/11 (produced by Left/Right), this 8-episode podcast series draws on interviews with more than 60 people — including FBI agents, high-level bureaucrats, journalists, experts, and people who knew the terrorists personally — and weaves them together with original reporting to create a gripping, serialized narrative audio experience.

Blindspot: The Road to 9/11 is a co-production of HISTORY and WNYC Studios.

I really enjoyed this podcast! It delves quite a bit into the founding of Al-Quaeda, the origin of Osama Bin Laden and his hatred towards America, political foreign policies, attacks that led up to and hinted at 9/11. Highly recommend listening
I think this is a well researched, informative podcast for those who want a very comprehensive dive into the events that lead up tp 9/11. Personally, I found it very long and boring in a lot of parts (which feels a little bad to say).
