XHM #176 - "Saving the world with style" (2013 July 29)

7:19am - 9:04am

Mrs Peel; we're needed. Laurie Johnson's score to the British spy series The Avengers gives this show a focus; otherwise, the wheels fall off this shortened bus. All apologies for the shorter than usual episode. Consider it an old-school type podcast that doesn't fully wear out its welcome.
