Secret Intelligence in the FBI

Sometimes we tend to think of the FBI as America’s police force, but the bureau’s primary mission is actually secret intelligence. Host Ben Kieffer talks about the history of the FBI with award-winning author Tim Weiner and his new book Enemies: A History of the FBI. Later, Ben talks with Jim McMillan, a special agent stationed in the Quad Cities, about the facts and fiction behind being an agent.
