This week’s podcast is about the Central Intelligence Agency in the Nixon administration. In August of this year, the CIA will be releasing all the daily briefings the agency disseminated during the Nixon and Ford administrations at a special event at the Nixon Presidential Library.

Here with us to discuss the presidential daily briefing during the Nixon years is David Priess, author of the newly released book “The President’s Book of Secrets: The Untold Story of Intelligence Briefings from Kennedy to Obama.”

Priess served in the Bill Clinton and George W. Bush administrations as an award-winning intelligence officer, manager and daily briefer at the CIA, as well as a desk officer at the State Department. He has his PhD from Duke University and is currently a director at Analytic Inc., offering specialized training, mentoring and consulting services to the intelligence community, other government offices and the private sector.
