Episode 8


The gang start plotting to spring Lawrence from prison, making Clarke's decision to close the case look increasingly suboptimal. Angela heads to the Big Top to track down Nish, and Milton Jones has the worst week of his life courtesy of the Only Joking team. Sara Pascoe joins Pat and Adams in the studio, where she is disappointed by the absence of her favourite member of the Springleaf crew...

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.

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.
