Jack Barsky, born in East Berlin 4 years after the end of World War II took an amazing life’s journey from becoming a college professor to being recruited by the KGB. His assignment? Infiltrate and live in the United States as a spy under our noses. He was to build his identity, grow rich, and then do serious damage to the US. Fortunately, things took a very sharp turn and Jack is now very much a proud American citizen.

In this interview, we dig a little beyond just the mechanics of being a spy in our midst. We explore things like the mental strain and psychological damage of leading dual identities and much more.
