You Seem Interesting Season 2 Episode 15: The CIA & Marc Polymeropoulos

Marc Polymeropoulos served 26 years with the CIA in some of the most dangerous places on Earth. His daily challenges had much higher stakes than most of us could ever fathom. Through countless successes, which include thwarting would be attacks on Americans, intelligence victories, recruiting assets and so much more, and as he discusses on the show, his numerous failures, Marc developed his core principles of strong leadership. He wrote about those in his new book 'Clarity in Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the CIA'. Marc was terrific on our current status in Afghanistan (where he was stationed previously), knowing you'll never get credit for a job well done, why intelligence work is like baseball, and the challenges of recruiting someone to spy on behalf of the United States against their own government or organization.
