Fantastic POVs from life during the Cold War era

If you enjoy first-person narratives of individuals living behind the Wall in communist countries during the Cold War, then this podcast is for you. Many of the episodes focus on the GDR (my favorite of the individual arrested by the Stasi during a tourist trip). There are many more episodes beyond this. I hope that more episodes are developed with individual individuals from other COMECON countries. This is a fantastic unique podcast unlike other podcasts that might recite historical information.

RAF Greenham Common Podcast

I found the RAF Greenham podcast to be very interesting and quite on point. I was stationed there as a young airman from 1982 to 1986. A short 6 months after the first of 96 Ground Launch Cruise Missiles (GLCM) were deployed. Looking back I didn’t realize the significance of the time or mission. I have many memories of the CND protestors and famous people coming by lending their morale and monetary support to the protesters. We were always told we were making history but discouraged from recording it under the threat of Article 92 punishment. I lived in Reading, Thatcham and Newbury. The host nation was great. Definitely wild times and unbelievable encounters with the demonstrators. Yes, the deployment manual that was spoken about is a very, very important piece of history to hold on to. I will always be proud of my time at RAF Greenham Common.
