In this episode, Dr. Eric Haseltine (self-proclaimed neuroscientist gone bad) tells the story of NSA agent Charles Gandy. Gandy was part of an uncharacteristic collaboration between the CIA and the NSA to find out what was happening in Cold War-era Moscow. Secret information was constantly ending up in Soviet hands, and assets were compromised left and right. It’s a true tale of American hubris (and psychology) Haseltine believes we can learn from today. There may be people out there who are smarter than we are–and have better tech. Instead of ignoring or laughing off these threats, it’s imperative to investigate and prepare.
