Yeah, it's a bit good innit. I can't make head not rail of it, other than the map showing her presence in Wales might indicate internment in the isle of man.

 

Also, tell your brother about that cold war conversations link as well. I'm fact, he would probably be a good candidate for an interview.

2 really good podcasts on the CIA and the development and testing of LSD.

 

https://coldwarvault.podbean.com/e/ep30-science-and-the-cia-part-1-the-curious-case-of-frank-olson/

In 1953, a CIA experiment with LSD triggered deep depression in a Department of Defense biochemist. Dr. Frank Olson committed suicide - or was murdered - a few days later. This story is a lense through which we will delve into the shadowy history of the CIA's experimentation with psychedelic drugs and mind control.

This episode delves into the origin and realities of the sometimes mundane (and sometimes insane) world of MKULTRA and particularly its most lurid episode: Subproject 42, also known as Operation Midnight Climax. Sex and the CIA. This time on the Cold War Vault.

Really great podcast on Cold War Conversations from a guy who was in the Special Forces detatchment in Berlin, whose job among other possible taskings was attacking the Headquarters of GSFG at Zossen Wunsdorf....

His book looks pretty fascinating too.

Nice. :)

 

There has been a lot of discussion elsewhere whether it was Ames or Robert Hannsen that was responsible for the most damage. A lot of what subsequently turned out to be Hannsens work was initially dropped on Ames. I still think Ames was responsible for blowing Gordievsky though.

Cold War related but not a podcast:

 

https://www.warrington-worldwide.co.uk/2020/04/06/memories-of-burtonwood-airbase/#prettyPhoto

 

Army Depot Burtonwood, where treasures slept for years:

 

"Pictured below are some of the 600 iconic “Willys Jeeps” which were stored at Burtonwood in the later years. One jeep built in 1947,when it was being serviced in 1990 had ONLY 17 miles on the clock! It had never been in service and the only time it moved was for service or being moved around the warehouse. "

 

It wasn't part of the POMCUS depots but it seems it had enough stuff to equip a division or 2!

One of the episodes of that podcast is actually recorded at Burtonwood museum. I gather they actually have one of those jeeps still there. It was a seriously major facility postwar, one that has been all but forgotten.
