This week, we hear a podcast that tells stories from women in the U.S. intelligence community, their challenges, and how Girl Scout cookies can sometimes be a tool on the job.

Foreign Policy recommends: Iron Butterfly 

This week on FP Playlist, we feature an episode from Iron Butterfly, produced by the National Security Institute at George Mason University and the Amazing Women of the IC. This series brings you real stories and experiences from women in the intelligence community. 

Iron Butterfly host Megan Jaffer spoke with FP Playlist about the unique experiences of each of their guests, and why retired Lt. Gen. Mary Legere goes by the code name Dragon Six.

I Spy

Spies don’t talk—it’s the cardinal rule of the business. But here at Foreign Policy, we get them to open up. On I Spy, we hear from the operations people: the spies who steal secrets, who kill adversaries, who turn agents into double agents. Each episode features one spy telling the story of one operation.
