Yarn 17 | Chernobyl

E[A travel and history documentary] It’s October 2019 and we're visiting the Chernobyl exclusion zone in the Ukraine. We'll spend two days exploring the zone with a small group of tourists and a guide and we'll stay overnight inside the exclusion zone, in Chernobyl’s only functioning hotel. This year the exclusion zone has received a surge in visitors following the popular HBO TV drama series starring Jared Harris. That series took an in-depth look into what exactly happened the night of the disaster and the events in the immediate aftermath. In this podcast we will focus much more on the zone as it is today, its most intriguing sites and its recently declassified secret origin. So come with us as we explore what was once, the most dangerous place on earth. - Written and produced by John Roche. Music score and sound mixing by Drembot. Very special thanks to our tour guide* - Comments and feedback very welcome! *For information about the guide and tour company we used contact us here: Email: yarnstorypodcast@gmail.com.

Yarn 15 | Blak Bisnis

E[A true crime story] Modern piracy and the hijacking of the Petro Ranger. - You probably don’t think of pirates as wearing expensive suits and working in high rise office buildings. In the 90’s the biggest pirates of South East Asia were impossible to tell apart from high powered business people. It was hard to tell them apart because they could be both. This is the true story of one of the most sophisticated pirate syndicates in South East Asia and it's mythic leader Mister Wong. The syndicate was run like a business. They had assets, employees, customers, lawyers and accountants but they operated outside the law and in secret with little regard for human life. Locals called their activity Blak Bisnis… - Written by John Roche.

Yarn 13 | The boxer and the bomber

E[An historical audio drama] Based on a true story. Dublin, St. Patrick’s Day 1923. A bloody civil war has been raging in the city for almost two years. Brothers, sisters and friends have often found themselves on opposing sides. In an attempt to restore order the new state have started executing dissidences in high numbers. Opposing forces react by calling for a compulsory period of national morning. All public amusements are to be shut down. Anyone staging or attending a public event leave themselves open to terrorist attacks by the opposition. Sounds like the perfect time to stage a world championship boxing match in the city right? What could go wrong? Our story is told from the point of view of two characters you normally wouldn’t associate with civil war Ireland. The Battling Siki – The current light heavy-weight champion of the world. A Senegalese fighter, who’s faced racism and marginalisation his whole life. His last title fight in Paris was marred by a match fixing scan...

Yarn 09 | Cuban missile crisis

E[An historical documentary] October 1962. A bold move on the Cold War chessboard makes America very nervous. Russia installs nuclear missiles in revolutionary Cuba and points them directly at the US. Life as we know it becomes increasingly precarious as communication between Moscow and Washington breaks down. Meanwhile, naval personnel on the Caribbean seas sense they have their finger on far more than a trigger. Yarn 09 is the story of the Cuban Missile Crisis. We explore the ideological and technological that created history's most dangerous moment and ask who the heroes really were?
