Cold War Conversations
Award-winning real stories of the Cold War told by those that were there. Every week we interview an eyewitness to the Cold War. Soldier, spy, pilot, factory worker and dissident, we aim to cover the whole gamut of the Cold War experience. Hosts Ian Sanders, James Chilcott and Peter Ryan bring your ears into the heart of the Cold War. Reading a history book is one thing, but hearing a human voice, with every breath, hesitation and intonation brings a whole new dimension to understanding what it was like to be there.

Tremendous show!!
This show is in my top 5 podcasts. I fancy myself as something of a history buff, and learn something (usually multiple somethings) from EVERY episode. Bravo!!
