Episode 2: Spy Craft
What is it about secrets and spying that holds such interest, curiosity and energy for us? And, why were these women agents, who were living ordinary lives pre-war, exhilarated by being undercover in dangerous circumstances?
In this episode I’ll discuss the high stakes of being involved in espionage whether behind the lines or on the home front. Then, I’ll introduce you to Garnet, a young woman from the UK who was decoding enemy messages in the secret facility at Bletchley Park.
Later it was boots on the ground for her to aid Czechoslovakian resistance cell members escape the Russians. That’s the focus of this episode of Invisible Women, different kinds of spy craft.
Award winning Vancouver actor Eileen Barrett is the voice of Garnet. You can read more about her here.
