    We have a brand new show on Secrets & Spies! Welcome to episode one of Espresso Martini. Once a month, Chris Carr & Matt Fulton will pick out stories that catch their eye about espionage, terrorism, geopolitics and pretty much anything that relates to the themes of the podcast. In episode one, we look at the legacy of Queen Elizabeth II, who died at the beginning of September. According to "C", the head of MI6, Britain's foreign intelligence service, Queen Elizabeth was the longest serving reader of intelligence briefs.  We then look at a Russian Spy in Italy who tried to get close to service NATO members. We also take a look at Russia's latest citizen, Edward Snowden, who was a former employee of the CIA & NSA. Other topics discussed in the podcast are the nuclear threat from Vladimir Putin's war on Ukraine, Luxury Nuclear bunkers and the world's most famous spy, James Bond, celebrating 60 years on screen. Topics and links to articles discussed: Her Majesty's Secret Service becomes His Majesty’s Secret Service. Her Majesty the Queen dies after a 75-year reign. https://www.pressreader.com/uk/yorkshire-post/20220909/281547999727062 Russian Spy at NATO: Socialite, Widow, Jeweller, Spy: How a GRU Agent Charmed Her Way Into NATO Circles in Italy https://www.bellingcat.com/news/2022/08/25/socialite-widow-jeweller-spy-how-a-gru-agent-charmed-her-way-into-nato-circles-in-italy/ Snowden becomes a Russian citizen. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-63036991 Ronald Pelton, a convicted spy for the Soviets, dies aged 80 https://www.washingtonpost.com/obituaries/2022/09/16/ronald-pelton-nsa-spy-dead/ The CIA turns 75!

    On today's podcast, I am joined by Dr Anthony Wells, and we discuss his latest book, “Crossroads in Time: Philby & Angleton A Story of Treachery”, which looks at the relationship between Kim Philby and James Jesus Angleton. The book also takes a look at if Angleton, whilst at the CIA, could have done more to prevent the assassination of President John F Kennedy in 1963.

    You can get a copy of “Crossroads in Time” here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Crossroads-Time-Philby-Angleton-Treachery-ebook/dp/B09Y7R55SG/ref=sr_1_2?crid=1EB2LGU13Z5ET&keywords=CROSSROADS+IN+TIME&qid=1663851282&s=digital-text&sprefix=crossroads+in+time%2Cdigital-text%2C52&sr=1-2
