Undercover cop Pat Springleaf (more widely known by his covert name: James Acaster) talks to Mike Wozniak about his ambitions to break into true crime podcasting.
James Acaster is the covert stand-up comedian persona of undercover cop Pat Springleaf. Everyone knows that. And as it’s obligatory for all comedians to have a podcast these days, Pat wants in.
When Pat was undercover, he wore his wire 24-7-365. Or 366 if it was a leap year.
In this one-off event for the London Podcast Festival, he talks to Mike Wozniak about the true-crime podcast he’s working on, using the wire recordings he’s amassed over years of infiltrating criminal gangs.
