Spy Rewind – Covert Affairs (159)

Covert Affairs Spy TV

In this episode of Spy Rewind, Double O Section‘s Matthew Bradford and SpyWrite‘s Jeff Quest take a look at the globetrotting cable spy tv show Covert Affairs

They discuss whether all spies need to meet at the Berlin listening station, the benefits of location shoots and how to be a “fashion-forward” spy.

Plus, Bowie in Berlin, R.E.M., cliff diving white Jaguars, and Jeff makes another failed attempt at an accent, this time German! All that and more in this episode of Spybrary.
