More Spy TV round table discussion on the Spybrary Spy Podcast. Our panel is back to run the rule over The Sandbaggers Season 3.
We are joined by Spybrary Podcast listeners, Hannah Cooper, Jeffrey Westhoff, and Paul Hodges of The Sandbaggers Facebook Group.
Before we get into the deep dive, Paul Hodges also talks us through some of his Sandbaggers memorabilia and shares more about his interaction with Ian Mackintosh’s daughter, Zoe. Paul reveals that Zoe believes that her father didn’t die in a simple plane crash in Alaska.
