Featuring Jim Olson on September 6, 2019

After 30 years of chasing Soviet KGB secrets and jumping out of moving cars for the CIA, Jim Olson now shares his adventures with the world through his books. Olson was Directorate of Operations during his time at the CIA and mostly served overseas in clandestine operations. Currently a professor of practice at the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University, he is also the author of “Fair Play: the Moral Dilemma of Spying.” In his new book “To Catch a Spy,” Olson offers the American people a warning that our response to foreign espionage needs to be stronger and a guide for how our country can protect its national security and trade secrets.
