Not all spies look like James Bond and Ethan Hunt. Most of them look like ordinary people, which makes them all the more dangerous... So what does it really take to be a spy? Every week, we cover a real-life spy mission: the stakes, the deception, the gadgets, and how it changed the course of history. Each two-part series follows one mission of a historic spy, and if they made it out alive. Espionage is a production of Cutler Media and part of the Parcast Network.

Great story telling
This is just great story telling. I have no interest in spies necessarily but I love the way these stories unfold and I get hooked right from the start. Great for bedtime listening or any other time.
