In the series premiere of Whirlwind, host Tim Weiner tells the story of Samuel Dickstein, an American Congressman who turned out to be working for the enemy as an “agent of influence.” Joined by guests Alexander Vassiliev, a former KGB officer turned journalist; Leon Panetta, former CIA director; Rolf Mowatt-Larssen, former CIA intelligence officer; and journalist Catherine Belton, Tim explores the possibility that there’s an “agent of influence” in the White House today. In partnership with Cadence13, Jigsaw Productions and a production of Prologue Projects. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices
