Episode 64: Virginia Hall, Part One -- Traveller, Translator, Secretary, Spy

EVirginia Hall was a woman of talent and frustrated ambition -- denied again and again from a position as an American diplomat, first on account of her sex and second on account of her status as an amputee. In a different world, she would have remained nothing more than an over-qualified secretary, but as with the advent of the Second World War, she became something more: one of the most successful and adaptable intelligence agents working inside Vichy France.

Episode 63: The Unkillable Michael Malloy

EIn 1932, during the waning hours of prohibition and the dawn of the Great Depression, a group of unscrupulous criminals, headed by speakeasy owner Tony Marino, came up with a dastardly plot to come up with some quick cash: to take out three life insurance policies on a haggard, homeless drunk named Michael Malloy. They figured Malloy wasn't far off from the grave, and they wouldn't need to lift a finger to send him on his way. But it turns out that Iron Mike Malloy was a lot more durable than they ever suspected.

Episode 55: Project X-Ray

EBack in the frantic days of WWII, the National Defense Research Committee of the United States government had a policy of accepting civilian submissions for how to achieve military success against the Axis Powers. Most of these suggestions were never used, as they were likely ineffective, unworkable, or otherwise profoundly stupid. Sometimes, however, simply being obviously dumb was no barrier to being accepted or enacted, as is the case with Project X-Ray.
