The Live Drop Podcast

The Live Drop is an interview-based podcast with a strong Cold War focus, intent on gathering stories and facts about the Cold War, intelligence operations, and related history. Mark Valley, the creator and host of The Live Drop, served in the U.S. Army and was stationed in Berlin, Germany with the opportunity to witness history in the making as times changed. These experiences helped spark a lifelong interest in this particular part of history and eventually led to the creation of this project.

The Live Drop Mission

Some stories shared by Live Drop Assets (guests) are stories that would not otherwise be told if no one asked. Other stories are fact-filled, verifiable history told and retold. The Live Drop is an effort to collect these stories and share the big picture through the more personal experiences and details, offering new perspectives and in the process allow a chance for the audience to see the connections the present still has with the past.
