Intelligent, reasonable espionage

It’s great to hear intelligent men talking about espionage who are not homophobes or misogynists or idiots. Great suggestions for what to read, and great to listen to while relaxing.

Fun and Insightful

I recently stumbled upon this podcast, and I enjoy Shane's interviews. I've been cherry picking the many episodes in the pod's backlog, and it's offered some great stuff that's added to my "To Be Read" list.
