UK Spy Podcast – Ep 51, Sunday Spy Show

Join THE INTELLIGENCE TRAIL guide Brian Gray for his monthly take on the key UK intelligence issues, on the Sunday Spy Show at Spies & Shadows TV.

Episode 51 of the best UK spy podcast is here for you to listen to. Most of the material was collated then duly recorded in late June. But there was a problem, namely one particular article that REALLY irked. And so a suitably explosive reposte was called for. Then it was deliberated on for a while as to whether it should be kept in the podcast.

It got cut. Nearly twenty minutes of it. Will the ‘missing minutes’ ever see the light of day (or the audio equivalent) ? Who knows.

Anyway, there’s a few stories covered PLUS US contributor Michael Brady offers his Stateside perspective of what’s going on with Comey-gate.

As usual, there’s seriousness, sensibility, and a wee tad of stupidity as well, all in the right proportions.
