A Nazi spy is tasked with uncovering underground Allied resistance networks. He was favored by the SS as a top hunter. Robert Alesh was a Luxembourger priest better known in France by his alias: "Father Robert Ackuin." The raids, arrests, and executions that Alesh’s treacherous work made possible set British intelligence back months. Alesh’s time as a priest served him well in his search for Jews and the Allied spies. Alesh begins working for one of the most evil men in history: the head of the Nazi Gestapo in Lyon, France: Klaus Barbie. Alesh receives his first hard evidence of the existence of “The Limping Lady,” the Allied spy running prison breaks and sabotage operations. So Robert Alesh and Virginia Hall begin a game of cat and mouse.

My name is Joshua Topolsky and I have a new podcast called What Future.


But I want to tell you that I'm being forced by my producer to record a promo telling you about my show.


And I'm not trying to force you to listen to it.


And maybe you're not interested in internet culture and the future of life on planet Earth.


And why John Carpenter movies are so good.


You may just want to listen to a podcast about, I don't know, sports or whatever Joe Rogan talks about.


And that's fine, you know, no judgment.


But if you like what you're hearing and I know that you do, you can listen to all of what future on the I Heart Radio app, Apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts.


Hey, I'm Joel Stein.


I want you to close your eyes and imagine a pocket watch.


It's moving from side to side.


You're getting very sleepy.


Great. Now that I've hypnotized you against your will, you're going to start liking long-form journalism.


Like so much. You're going to listen to a podcast where the host interviews a writer about their long-form story every week.


I'm that host.


Listen to story of the week on the I Heart Radio app, Apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts.


I'm Danish Ward's host of Stealing Superman, a new I Heart original podcast about the most unlikely art heist of all time.


It was Nick Cage's own personal national treasure.


At a 1999 New Year's Eve party, someone snatched Cage's priceless comments.


But who?


Listen to Stealing Superman on the I Heart Radio app, Apple podcasts or wherever you find your favorite shows.
