Update: 2021-03-294


On June 29, 2003, a 14-year-old boy was fighting for his life, laying in a pool of his own blood in an alley in Greater Manchester, United Kingdom. He had been stabbed by a contracted assassin that was working on behalf of The Secret Intelligence Service, or MI6. Listen to this week’s episode to find out why the British Government would want a 14-year-old boy dead, and the events that led up to his near-fatal stabbing. The twists and turns in this episode are straight out of a James Bond movie!

I believe that there are young people who are agents of MI6. Don’t know when I heard this but I think I heard something like that. Or it might’ve been MI5. Bet I’m wrong lol but I might as well share.

seems like you were reading something directly from what someone other than you researched and wrote. this episode was so ridiculous I'm not sure what the point was. I've listened to all the episodes and truthfully the integrity of your content isn't as good as earlier ones. it's like you'll throw anything out there as long as you don't have to invest much time preparing. that's how you come across lately.
