Interview with Ray McGovern

Ray McGovernThis is our first podcast here at EP. Not quite a full production, but out of Beta – one for the historical archives! Ray McGovern had a 27-year career with the CIA as an analyst, spanning the administrations of JFK to GHW Bush. His duties included chairing National Intelligence Estimates and preparing the President's Daily Brief (PDB). During the mid-eighties, Ray was one of the senior analysts conducting early morning briefings of the PDB one-on-one with the Vice President, the Secretaries of State and Defense, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, and the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs.

This show is long: about 1:18! So be warned. I didn't want to chop it up, as the conversation seems an organic whole. We cover Iraq, Iran, the NSA and CIA scandals, Impeachment, and other subjects. I hope you enjoy listening. It was recorded the afternoon of January 5. Photo taken after the interview, credit to me.
