Espionage Podcast Video Statistics
So far, every Parcast podcast I've listened to, this one included, has been presenting obvious conjecture as facts along with *presumably* actually researched facts. They are essentially presenting their cheesy audio equivalents of 90's crime show dramatizations as fact. They routinely make very specific claims about the inner monologues and emotions of these people on a moment-to-moment basis without qualifying the statements as speculation, all in the name of entertainment. Either these people have the personal, extremely detailed diaries of just about every subject of these real life stories, or they're making a lot of this content up. Parcast has lost any shred of credibility for me, and I will never subscribe to any future content of theirs. I also have no idea how accurate the other supposed "facts" are, but several people have been citing apparent inaccuracies. If you listen, do it with a BIG grain of salt.
Great podcast looking forward to hearing more
I couldn't even get through five minutes. It's highly sensationalized and overproduced, with the storytelling of pulp fiction and dramatic music to match.
... is that I need more episodes. Really enjoying these, as they have become one of the top 5 podcasts I look forward to in the week. Keep up the great work, you got a fan in me. Ps, I have no complaints about your pronunciation of the word “nuclear”. People be trippin...
It’s pronounced ‘NOO-klee-AR’ not ‘NOOK-u-LAR’
First of all, the pronunciation of certain words doesn’t bother me. Dialect and vernacular are different everywhere. I grew up with my grandmother saying “zink” for sink and she’s one of the smartest people I know. Second, I love the content. Every time I’m in DC I visit the spy museum; I t’s one of my favorite places. I love that this podcast started with the Rosenburgs and I can’t wait to hear more!
Interesting topic, make the story sound more interesting.
An interesting idea and pretty good story, but the delivery needs work. I don’t think the narrator is terrible, but the “nuke u lar” mispronunciation others have mentioned is pretty bad. How did that get past everyone making the podcast? There are also some dry mouth noises getting through that are kind of gross, especially with headphones. Take a break during recording, hit pause, and sip some water. Seems easy enough. (Please don’t do this while recording though. I feel like I have to be explicit.) Some of the writing is awkward, too, almost like it was written by a Russian spy trying to sound American. The description of people in the theater being “blissful to” Julius’s crisis below them is so odd. I assume they meant “blissfully unaware of,” but how can an adult English speaker mess that up, and no one else catch it before it goes live? Whoever complained that this podcast needs interviews with the people who did this stuff... spoiler alert: they are dead.
If Chuck Norris gives you a bag of wet mice for a Christmas gift, consider yourself lucky! It could have been something related to his foot and your face.
Espionage should be an interesting subject in its own right but this podcast takes the basic facts and then makes it into a sort of a play. Conversations and even internal thoughts are given to characters. This leads me to question the whole podcast. For example if the writers can manufacture conversation to make the podcast more interesting what else has been embellished for dramatic effect? GB
Thoroughly enjoy listening to the tales of espionage on this podcast; such attention to the details. GB
The host lets the show down. GB

Espionage or spying is the act of obtaining secret or confidential information without the permission of the holder of the information. Spies help agencies uncover secret information. Any individual or spy ring (a cooperating group of spies), in the service of a government, company or independent operation, can commit espionage. The practice is clandestine, as it is by definition unwelcome. In some circumstances it may be a legal tool of law enforcement and in others it may be illegal and punishable by law. Espionage is a method of intelligence gathering which includes information gathering from non-disclosed sources. Espionage is often part of an institutional effort by a government or commercial concern. However, the term tends to be associated with state spying on potential or actual enemies for military purposes. Spying involving corporations is known as industrial espionage. One of the most effective ways to gather data and information about a targeted organization is by infiltrating its ranks. This is the job of the spy (espionage agent). Spies can then return information such as the size and strength of enemy forces. They can also find dissidents within the organization and influence them to provide further information or to defect. In times of crisis, spies steal technology and sabotage the enemy in various ways. Counterintelligence is the practice of thwarting enemy espionage and intelligence-gathering. Almost all nations have strict laws concerning espionage and the penalty for being caught is often severe. However, the benefits gained through espionage are often so great that most governments and many large corporations make use of it. Information collection techniques used in the conduct of clandestine human intelligence include operational techniques, asset recruiting, and tradecraft..
