What does a spy look like? Where would a spy even, well,  spy?

Pulitzer prize-winning journalist Daniel Golden exposes the new front-lines of the global spy-game: college campuses. 

As the worlds super-powers have pivoted toward knowledge-based economies (the production of proprietary technologies, new-age warfare, and the science of nuclear weapons), spies have learned to train their eye on a new target. Goldens extensive research reveals startling insights into how this change in focus has transformed college classrooms into breeding grounds for espionage, technological theft, and even defection. 

Award-winning journalist Angie Coiro sits down with Golden for an hour to expose what spies today really look like and what secrets countries like the United States, China, Iran, and more are desperate to keep secret.
