Can you recommend me any good spy-themed podcasts? Think Tom and Janine in ZR but not necessarily during the apocalypse. Female protagonist is preferable. Thank you!
@lizstanton, all I can say is Shame on me. I failed. I’m not as good at finding podcasts as I thought I was …
Despite listening to so many podcasts, I could barely scrape a few together that kinda sorta fit what you’re looking for. There seem to be not many female led spy themed podcasts out there. (There is a lot of sci fy, but not much spy stuff.)
Maybe we can bribe Six to Start into writing an audio drama about Janine and/or Sara Smith?
Anyways, here are a few that might be at least close to what you’re looking for. And I really really hope our dear followers can add to this short list:
Espionage, sci fi, and time travel; with a great and diverse cast, a female lead, and if you like solving puzzles, there are mysterious numbers at the end of each episode …
Part short story anthology, part ongoing adventures of PI Juno Steel. He’s a PI, not a spy, and it’s more film noir than thriller, but there is investigating and a conspiracy so maybe that counts? Not a female protagonist, but has many great female characters!
Not an audio drama but non-fiction stories about real spies, interviews with intelligence officers, etc. (I haven’t listened to it yet, so I can’t say much about its quality)
There are one or two more that are unfinished but haven’t updated for years so I decided not to put them on the list. Because who wants to start listening to a thrilling spy adventure - and then never learn how it ends?
Also I assume you’re already familiar with Six to Start’s The Walk, right? Cause it fits your description very well!
Alright, followers, fellow podcast enthusiasts, podcastinators (?), do you know of any any podcasts @lizstanton should check out?
Love Love, Peace Peace
PS: Now I really want to write fanfic about Janine DeLuca and Sara Smith doing amazing spy stuff …
