We’re back in LA to talk about a topic that’s always hush hush – surveillance!
* Do intelligence agencies conduct too much domestic surveillance – and do we need to keep an eye on them?
* Why are they leaking – and is it spy vs. spy?
* Do they keep us safe – or is that just what they want you to think, man?
Featuring a fantastic cast who’s willing to wind up on a watch list:
* Professor James Harrigan, former dean of the American University of Iraq-Sulaimani who’s written for the Wall Street Journal, U.S. News and World Report, and more.
* Comedian and former NSA employee Bryan Vokey!
* Comedian Sammy Obeid – seen on Conan, America’s Got Talent and more!
