William Binney has been working in intelligence since the Cold War. As a cryptomathemetician, he helped create a new surveillance system called Thin Thread. When he discovered Thin Thread was being used to spy on American citizens, he spoke up and eventually left the agency.

Also in this show, Dick and Phoebe read and discuss your responses to Tuesday's show about preventive mastectomies, and children's book author and artist Ashley Bryan remembers being in a boat waiting for D-Day to begin. He kept a sketchbook in his gas mask and drew when he could. "It kept me connected to my humanity," he says.
