A podcast about some of the most spectacular terrorist attacks in history. In this podcast I tell the stories of the terrorists, their victims and the consequences for the survivors and for society. About people who will sacrifice their own lives or the lives of others for a political, economic, religious or social goal.

Who was behind it, who they wanted to hit, and not least: Why.

My name is Natasja, and I am a journalist with a Master’s in Middle Eastern Studies. Unfortunately, I have experienced terror in my life several times. The massacre in Utøya in Norway happened half an hour’s drive from where some of my immediate family lives. A good friend of mine was only a meter away from one of the suicide bombers on the London Underground in 2005. He miraculously escaped with two burst eardrums. Finally, I worked in Afghanistan some time ago, where a major terrorist attack on a local cafe claimed the lives of 21 people. Among them, the owner, who had served me a layer cake on my birthday the year before. Fortunately, I have never been in the middle of a terrorist attack myself. But these experiences have awakened my curiosity, fascination and a fear that most people probably think about: Will it happen to me someday?

Before you start listening, I must warn you that the podcast contains descriptions and details that can be violent and are unsuitable for especially small children and people who are affected by hearing about murder and violence.

The series is based on journalistic research and contains fictional elements in the shape of made-up scenes and dialogues.
