The Rundown

The episode begins with a discussion of my undying love of the Libby app. Libby is an application available from your local public library that allows you to download ebooks and audiobooks to your phone or Kindle.

After the break, Joby joins Nate for a remote interview. Joby is the author of two books The Triple Agent and Black Flags. He is a reporter for the Washington Post where he works national security and intelligence beats. We discussed shared themes in his books: the dangers of executive branch hubris, the incredible effectiveness of Jordan intelligence, and the role that women are playing (as tageters) in the intelligence and counter-terrorism communities.

Joby is currently on book leave working on his upcoming book.
