Episode 11-Former KGB Double Agent Jack Barsky on the Russian Spy Game
In Episode 11, it’s a first – as Melissa and Matt interview an honest-to-God, real live ex-East German SPY for the KGB. Prost! Jack Barsky spent ten years spying in the U.S. for the Soviets before deciding to walk away and become an American citizen. He was the real-life version of the guy in “The Americans.” Barsky’s book “Deep Undercover” details his experiences as a spy during the Cold War. Fascinating stuff! And, he’s got amazing insights about Vladimir Putin’s Russia today, and Putin’s goals for expansion and what he’d like to see happen here in the West. Dasvidaniya comrade, you know you want to listen!
