Podcast Favorites

http://spybrary.com/interview-spy-novelist-charles-cumming/ David Craggs and Shane Whaley hold a no-holds-barred talk with the outspoken Charles Cumming. Conversation ranges far afield from his new novel, The Man Between, to classic spy novel influences and even some current political commentary tidbits. 

http://www.thelivedrop.com/live-drop-episode-6/Mark Valley talks with Tim Hall, who served in the US Army in Germany, specializing in Morse Code signals -- collection and transmitting. Tim was at Teufelsberg, a special listening station used by the US Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM) and NSA during the Cold War. As all episodes of The Live Drop display, Valley brings his unique military and intelligence background to his conversations.

https://longform.org/posts/longform-podcast-303-rukmini-callimachi  Rukmini Callimachi covers ISIS for The New York Times and is the host of Caliphate. This 90-minute conversation is phenomenal, superior even to her fine Caliphate podcast. 

Behind the Bookshelves - The AbeBooks podcast - Ian Fleming's Lecacy June 1, 2018. This episode is a wonderful, detailed 22 minute interview with bookseller Jon Gilbert about Fleming's writing career, WWII Intelligence work, short stories, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and more.

Carolann Ames - Laurel Canyon Road 

Amazing vocals; gave me shivers. All original songs, what’s really expected these days, but also lyrics that peek inside Ames. I enjoy this record; it’s calming yet engaging at the same time. Even if you’re not a listen-to-the-words person, I know you’ll like the sound of Carolann Ames. Pretty doesn’t do this music justice.
