Our guest today is former teacher and journalist, Bill Macdonald, the author of The True Intrepid: Sir William Stephenson and the Unknown Agents, and Intrepid's Last Secrets: Then and Now. 

The intelligence exploits of Canadian spymaster William Stephenson were celebrated in his lifetime in espionage lore the world over. This mysterious man, known widely as “Intrepid,” established the secret WWII organization known as British Security Coordination, and is said to be the real-life model for James Bond. 

Bill has spent half a life time researching the subject and he will share some of these findings with us. Who was William Stephenson? Bill will help us sort out the true and the untrue and as in all these cases the truth is nearly always more interesting than the fiction.
