Publisher's Summary

Are our parents really who we think they are?

Drummer with The Police, Stewart Copeland, sets out to uncover the truth about his father, Miles Axe Copeland ll - musician, raconteur, international businessman... and, it turns out, secret CIA operative.

Going back to the 1940s to trace his father’s involvement in the birth of the CIA, Stewart enters a murky world of dictators and dirty tricks. He learns about his dad’s role in overthrowing governments, assassination plots, and befriending an infamous Soviet double agent.

Helped by his brother and sister, and those who knew his dad’s world of politics and espionage, Stewart investigates the impact his spy father had, both on their family and on the world.

Masturbatory and nationalistic

Copeland talks about himself the whole time, and appears to think the US saved the Middle East from itself.

terrible

terrible podcast. It is a total misdirect, the title is very misleading. The author simply talks about music and his childhood non-stop. Nothing about espinoage.

I tried

I’m sorry, I thought it would be an interesting story, but it’s just really boring. I couldn’t get past Ep3.

Don’t bother

Someone tries to understand their parents, finds some disturbing truths, doesn’t like what they hear, gets angry and excuses it with patriotism.
