Welcome to Down These Mean Streets, a weekly trip back to the Golden Age of Radio where we rub elbows with the era's greatest private eyes, cops, and crime-fighters. Since 2013, I've been podcasting everything from cozy mysteries to police procedurals, spotlighting characters ranging from hard boiled gumshoes to amateur sleuths. 

Be sure to tune in each Sunday for adventures of a radio detective and the behind-the-scenes stories of their shows. Join me as we spend time with Sam Spade, Johnny Dollar, Sgt. Joe Friday, and more!

Dana Andrews is undercover for Uncle Sam in I Was a Communist for the FBI. Based on the real-life exploits of Communist infiltrator Matt Cvetic, the syndicated series presented espionage dramas of Reds on the homefront and the efforts of the G-men to thwart their nefarious plans. Cvetic's story was adapted for the big screen in an Oscar-winning film and then on radio in this syndicated drama. We'll hear Matt Cvetic on the case in "Treason Comes in Cans."
