Space Junk - Space Espionage (with Dr. Vince Houghton) - Part 2

Space Junk - Space Espionage (with Dr. Vince Houghton) - Part 2

Introduction

In part 2 of my conversation with Dr. Vince Houghton, the chief historian, and curator at the international spy museum in Washington DC, we continue to delve into the intersections between technology, espionage, and society. If you haven't heard part 1, listen to that one first! http://spaceaustralia.com/opinions/space-junk-space-espionage-dr-vince-houghton-part-1

Dr. Houghton specializes in military and intelligence history, with specific expertise on late-WWII and early-Cold War eras. He is a veteran of the US Army and served in the Balkans before receiving his Masters and Ph.D. in Diplomatic and Military History from the University of Maryland.

We talk about how we balance privacy and freedom in our day-to-day interactions with smartphones and the internet, stereotypes of women in intelligence, and why Vince isn’t a big fan of James Bond.
