Pearse Redmond of PorkinsPolicyReview joined me again to talk about the CIA-sponsored spy drama Homeland.  We discuss the Agency links to the show, its commercial and critical success, the implications of the title, the context and subtext of the storyline, the characters, the themes and memes and possible predictive programming elements.  We rounded off looking at the worldview and values underpinning the show, and thus imparted to the show’s truly global audience.
