In this episode, Rob and Don go on a mission with guest Jack Ward to reveal the truth about spies in popular culture. The trio explore the 60’s Spy Craze, talking about what led up to it, how it played out, and what parts of it are still influencing our popular culture today. From The Scarlet Pimpernel to Jason Bourne, and everything in between, this podcast takes listeners into the shadowy world of men and women who might not exist. All this, and why Mission Impossible might be the greatest spy TV series ever, is waiting for you in this episode of The Department of Nerdly Affairs.
