EPISODE 19 Featuring Dan Carlin  

"If I can add some nuance and complexity and some context and compassion. If I can get people to think about walking a mile in the other guy's moccasins, or pretend like you want to, I can feel like I'm adding something that is unusual. And it's a little bit shocking and upsetting to me that it is unusual. When people say it's so refreshing, you wonder why it's refreshing to try to see the other person's viewpoint? Shouldn't that just be how we are?" — Dan Carlin 

“It’s an uplifting story with millions of dead people” — Dan Carlin

Industrial Espionage  

From the East German Stasi to modern-day cyber hackers, Theo Leggett takes a furtive look at the people seeking to steal businesses' most valuable secrets, and what can be done to stop them. Researcher Erik Meyersson explains how, at the height of the Cold War, the DDR - with the help of a network of thousands well-placed human assets - was able to produce cheap copies of one of IBM's most advanced computers. Theo heads to Spymaster - a London high street retailer of James Bond-esque gadgets - to discover the modern tools of the trade, and to speak to Steve Durbin of the Information Security Forum, who explains how the greatest fear of big corporations that he works for is of being hacked. The most prolific modern-day cyber-thief of corporate intellectual property is China, say some experts. Theo speaks to John Carlin, formerly an attorney general at the US Department of Justice, about his efforts to fend them off.

Episode 231: Brooke Gladstone  

Brooke Gladstone is the host of On the Media.

“I’ve learned so much about how easy it is to redefine reality in this era of billions of filter bubbles. How easy it is to cast doubt on what is undeniably true. And I think that that’s what frightens me the most. I actually think that’s what frightens most people the most. How do we make sure that we all live in the same world? Or do we?”
