My chat this week is with Timothy Ashby, historian, novelist and author of Elizabethan Secret Agent: The Untold Story of William Ashby. Ashby was a spy working for Sir Francis Walsingham, spymaster for Queen Elizabeth I. Stationed in Edinburgh, he ran a number of operations to further the Queen’s cause against the Spanish.

We also chat about the subject of his novel, Ranger, Fédon’s Rebellion in 1795, a slave rebellion on the island of Grenada against the British.

Finally we talk about Operation Condor and the American efforts against regimes and democracies in Latin America and the Caribbean.
