Not all spies look like James Bond and Ethan Hunt. Most of them look like ordinary people, which makes them all the more dangerous... So what does it really take to be a spy? Every week, we cover a real-life spy mission: the stakes, the deception, the gadgets, and how it changed the course of history. Each two-part series follows one mission of a historic spy, and if they made it out alive. Espionage is a production of Cutler Media and part of the Parcast Network.

Slow down!

Great topics, but I can’t follow them because the narrator speaks so fast. I feel like I’m being rushed. Don’t think I’ll keep the subscription.

Nothing special, questionable research

I started with the french triple spy episodes and it was entertaining but the drama was forced at times when the narrator is trying to set a scene.

The Rosenberg one was next, and it was a frustrating episode. There’s certainly no shortage of viewpoints on the rosenberga but the podcast made a point to talk aboiut the proximity fuse—which was indeed stolen—the podcast makes it sound like some key part of a nuclear weapon when it doesn’t really have anything to do with nukes, it’s more for anti aircraft artillery. It makes me wonder about how thoroughly information was researched even on a very well worn topic.

The question of what kind of other errors or misrepresentations are in the stories puts a damper on any enthusiasm I had for the podcast.
