Studio guest Romesh Ranganathan attempts to get a grip on exactly what the podcast is, Sita bags Serpico his first acting role and Pat's crowd-work skills are tested to their limit when Donna encourages Lawrence and Huey to try out their new heist personas in public…


A true(ish) crime podcast, which sees undercover cop Pat Springleaf (James Acaster) share police wire recordings from the biggest case of his career: working to infiltrate and bring to justice the notorious SW6 gang, led by the villainous Lawrence.


Back in 2013, ex-conman-turned-undercover-cop Pat was in the middle of a career-defining undercover gig - but problems beset him on all sides: the gang are getting suspicious; his wife wants a divorce; the police are demanding results; and his ex partner in crime is blackmailing him. Not an ideal situation for someone with a burning need to please absolutely everybody.


In 2023, meanwhile, Pat and his producer Adams play clips to studio guests as they unpack the criminal hijinks that launched the career of the man now reasonably widely-known as James Acaster.
