Professional and historical perspective

If you're a student of modern history, espionage, or tradecraft, this is a series of entertaining conversations about key historical turning points and the protagonists (and antagonists) involved. Quite apart from entertaining stories from beneath the surface of our everyday world, the intelligence, nuance and perspective brought to bear makes this a treat for the mind. Note: if you're thinking of writing spy novels, this is on your must-listen list. (The occasional 'movie villain' accent comes extra)
