I was on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal, discussing the future of spying, the importance of soft power, and how national security should be a non-partisan issue. Watch me here!

The CIA will face some challenges to untangle the Trump-Russia tentacles. I discussed it with The Dan Riendeau Show in our neighbor to the north. Listen here.

What’s significant about the WikiLeaks dump of CIA documents? I chatted with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation about it. Watch the interview here.

As President-elect Donald Trump takes on CIA, I talked to The Cipher Brief about the potential challenges the adversarial relationship might have on field operations. Listen here. Or read the transcript here.

What’s it like to leave the safety and security of a government job to launch your own project? Scary as sh*t, but fun! I talk about it here with the podcast Happen to Your Career.

UK spy podcast Spies and Shadows TV asked me to invite five spy figures to dinner. Like a good spy, I broke the rules. Have a listen.

Colorado radio personality Peter Boyles and I agree the world is in flames and we’re all up sh*t creek, but it made for an entertaining conversation! Listen in here (I come on in minute 48:00 of hour 3) and here (hour 4).

I talked to Colorado Matters on Colorado Public Radio about the Cold War, Red Dawn, and how a dinner with Russians changed my world view.

I loved chatting with Covert Contact and Blogs of War about Victor in the Rubble and the absurdity of bureaucracy. Listen here.

I chatted with International Spy Museum historian Vince Houghton on the SpyCast about Victor in the Rubble and the lengths good officers will go to overcome the absurd bureaucracy.

I did an interview with Find out what parts of West Africa stuck with me, how I compare to Ian Fleming and John LeCarre, and what I am doing for folks who don’t like reading The Economist.

Come listen to me talk on the radio machine and soundcloud! I’ve been busy talking about everything from why M*A*S*H is more realistic than Homeland to how I have control over UFOs.



Listen to me chat with my alma mater while Knickerbockers rally ’round.

And here I am controlling UFOs while claiming not to be tech savvy on the Butt Hurt Show.
