Just as I was doing some research for my next book blog I came across this interesting place – the Spy Museum – in Washington DC, located close by some other famous DC landmarks – Ford’s Theatre, for one – and only a few blocks from the White House.
Something to put on the American tour itinerary if you’re planning a trip in the near future!
But also they have an interesting podcast series which i stumbled across – twice a month, the International Spy Museum offers a new SpyCast featuring interviews and programs with ex-spies, intelligence experts, and espionage scholars. The SpyCast is hosted by Dr. Vince Houghton, historian and curator at the International Spy Museum. Dr. Houghton specializes in intelligence, diplomatic, and military history, with expertise in the late-WWII and early-Cold War eras.
I’ve provided two links – one to the iTunes list of podcasts here
and one to the list on the Museum’s website here
There are some interesting topics covered in their podcast series, most notably Cold War era spying but also contemporary subjects, for example, one China expert talking about how the Chinese really view America and its leaders.
