Why Photograph? Memories

“The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do.”

Andy Warhol

I cherish the memories triggered by photographs (aka Kodak moments).

Andy Warhol was born in Pittsburgh, my hometown, in 1928. He was educated at the Carnegie Institute of Technology (Carnegie Mellon University) in Pittsburgh.

‘Talks with a Spy’

A former French intelligence officer describes what it is like on the inside

Talks with a Spy‘ is a YouTube channel created by Olivier Mas, a former member of France’s foreign intelligence agency, the DGSE.

Mas left the DGSE in 2017. He speaks in French. Some episodes are available with English subtitles. When he is interviewed, the questions are in English.

He covers topics such as top spy novels and films, the five best intelligence services in the world and how to recruit a source. All the episodes are first rate.

Mas also dedicates an episode to discussing how he sees Le Bureau des Légendes, my favorite spy TV series.

In addition, Mas has a book, written in French, and a website. A podcast is in the works.

If the world of espionage is of interest, this is highly recommended.
