    “Honey Trapped: Sex, Betrayal & Love” – with Henry Schlesinger

    “Honey Trapped: Sex, Betrayal & Love” – with Henry Schlesinger

    Summary
    Henry Schlesinger (Rare Bird Books) joins Andrew (Twitter; LinkedIn) to discuss two of the most mysterious and alluring forces in human history: sex and spying. He is a journalist and author proudly based out of NYC. 
    What You’ll Learn
    Intelligence

    The impact of sexpionage on history 

    Debunking common “honey trap” myths 

    Examples of weaponized seduction and leveraged love 

    Cyber honey traps and digital sexpionage

    Reflections

    Psychological implications of love and lies

    The relationship between pop culture myths and historical truth 

    And much, much more …

    Episode Notes
    Sex. Espionage. Sometimes they both overlap by accident...but sometimes it's entirely intentional. From Samson and Delilah in the Bible to the Profumo Affair that rocked British society in the 1960’s, they are a heady and dramatic combination.
    But how is sex used in modern espionage? How do the professionals combine them, if indeed they do? What myths surround the use of both? How have men and women used sex and seduction to spy? 
    To answer these questions and more, Andrew sat down with Henry Schlesinger to discuss his newest book, Honey Trapped: Sex, Betrayal, and Weaponized Love, which explores the fascinating relationship between sex and spying. 
    And… 
    You know about Benjamin Franklin in Paris as a “bon vivant, wily diplomat and aging lion,” but read Henry’s article about him as the “Founding Forger” engaged in disinformation and fake news during the Revolution!

    Quote of the Week
    “The thing about espionage is that it encompasses the best in human beings and the worst and everything in between.” – Henry Schlesinger.

    “Nazis on the Potomac” – with former National Park Service Chief Historian Bob Sutton

    Summary
    Bob Sutton (LinkedIn; Twitter) joins Andrew (Twitter; LinkedIn) to discuss the mysterious intelligence site P.O. Box 1142. High-value Nazis were interrogated here during WWII.

    What You’ll Learn
    Intelligence

    The interrogation of top Nazis for intelligence 

    The analysis of literally tons of captured German documents 

    Refining ways to escape and evade Nazis in German occupied Europe

    The importance of intelligence on the German Army’s Order of Battle 

    Reflections

    The National Park Service & History

    Politicizing Interpretation

    And much, much more…

    Episode Notes
    This week’s guest is the former Chief Historian of the National Park Service, Bob Sutton, and what a wonderful conversation we had.
    His book, Nazis on the Potomac: The Top-Secret Intelligence Operation that Helped Win WWII, tells the story of military intelligence facility P.O. Box 1142 – present day Fort Hunt, around 15 miles south of Washington DC.It was here, between 1942-1945, that around three and a half thousand high level German prisoners were interrogated, captured documents analyzed, and ways to help Americans escape and evade Nazis in occupied Europe studied.
    This story is particularly incredible, because many of the interrogators were German born Jews.
    This story was almost lost to history, but thankfully because of the NPS and Bob Sutton, it never will be.
    [Conflict of interest disclosure, Andrew has an “America the Beautiful” Annual Pass].
    And…
    John W. Kluge arrived in the United States from Germany not speaking a word of English in 1922. He was 8 years old. He would go on to be the head of the Military Intelligence Research Section (MIRS) at P.O. Box 1142. After the war, he would go on to become the richest man in the United States. He was so appreciative of America, that he provided funds to Columbia University and The Library Congress to provide opportunities to future students and scholars. Andrew is a former John W. Kluge Fellow at the Library of Congress and therefore a direct recipient of his philanthropy for which he is grateful.

    Quote of the Week
    "Doing what we did at Fort Hunt is actually fairly unusual, where we didn't know the story. We were able to locate people, we were able to get money, we could actually interview everybody that we found…That's relatively unusual." – Bob Sutton

    Summary
    Ryan Zimmerman (MLB Stats; Wikipedia) and Marc Polymeropoulos (Twitter; LinkedIn) join Andrew to discuss intelligence and America’s pastime. From the SpyCast Field of Dreams.

    What You’ll Learn
    Intelligence

    Sign-stealing and codebreaking

    Glue guys and teamwork

    Ethics in baseball and espionage

    Clutch and pinch hitters in espionage and baseball

    Reflections

    Daring to fail

    Stepping up to the plate of life

    And much, much more…

    Episode Notes
    Buy me some peanuts and crackerjack. Few things in the world compare to sitting back, putting your feet up, and cracking open a cold one while watching the World Series. 
    For the 2021 World Series Marc joined us for a fantastic discussion on the links between baseball and espionage. How do we top that? A baseball fanatic ex-CIA officer? 
    Why, how about getting a first-round draft pick, World Series Champion with over 6500 at-bats? Done! Enter Ryan Zimmerman, Mr. National! 
    Ever wondered about signs-stealing, how to run a baseball counterintelligence operation, or what some of the many, many links are between baseball and espionage? You’ve come to the right place for a discussion that goes to the bottom of the ninth inning over a two-episode conversation.
    Ryan played for the Nationals from 2005, when he was a first-round draft pick, through to 2021, when his #11 jersey was retired. He is an ex- All-Star, Silver Slugger, Gold Glove winner, and 2019 World Series Champion. 
    Marc is a highly decorated former CIA operations officer who specialized in counterterrorism, the Middle East, and South Asia. Prior to his retirement, he served at CIA headquarters in charge of clandestine operations in Europe and Eurasia. He is the author of the 2021 book, “Clarity in Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the CIA.”
    And…
    “Big Data” is upending many fields, not least baseball and espionage. Gaining a competitive edge is central to both activities, the big argument is about how much “soul” is lost along the way. The Houston Astros have been a lighting-rod team, whose “smart and modern” or “cold and cynical” approach has been discussed at Penn's Wharton School of Business and in the pages of the Harvard Business Review. 

    Quotes of the Week
    "I think “Dare to Fail” is enormous. I would want you to put me up at the bases load in the bottom of the ninth. I'll take it every single time. Even if I feel like I have zero chance, I want to be there." - Ryan Zimmerman
    "You know, you have to have that mentality in these professions." - Marc Polymeropoulos
