Tom & Chunga Play Spy Games

December 8, 2020

The holidays are upon us and The Hacks are having a hard time concentrating. Because of this, Tom and Chunga want to change things up a bit. They’re putting on their tinfoil hats and talking about Spy Games.

Nation-states spy on each other. Let’s be honest, they spy on everyone, enemies, and allies. While spying on your enemies is a given; should it be acceptable to spy on your closest friends and allies? What about countries spying on their own people?¬†Every time a story breaks in the press, everyone seems to act shocked and amazed that a nation would take such action.

In truth, allies and have always spied on each other. Tom Hatch is a former member of the U.S. intelligence community and he says that the only way to truly eliminate confusion, deception, and the “fog of war”–is to spy. Yes, even on those you trust. Does Tom have the same opinion when it comes to spying on its own citizens? Does he think whistleblowers like Edward Snowden are heroes or villains? Listen now to find out!
