Episode 3,  Oct 05, 2022, 05:00 AM

In this episode, we sit down with Aimen Dean - a former terrorist turned British spy. Aimen joined Al-Qaeda in the late 90s but soon had a change of heart. We hear how he was recruited by the British intelligence services and sent back to Afghanistan to spy on the world's most dangerous terrorist organisation, through 9/11 and the London bombings, before he was eventually exposed.

These are the stories that resonated the most with LADbible’s audience when they were originally told on Minutes With.

In this podcast, LADbible’s Ben Powell-Jones sits down with those individuals for a more in-depth conversation, revealing untold tales for the first time.
