Joe Weisberg, CIA

This week on I Spy, we feature Joe Weisberg, the creator of the award-winning TV show The Americans. Long before his work on the show, Weisberg served briefly in the CIA. His experiences at the agency informed storylines in the show and helped shape Weisberg’s views on espionage. Eventually, he came to believe that spying does more harm than good in the world.

About I Spy:  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.
