My father the spy

May 30, 2013

Guest: Scott Johnson

SCOTT JOHNSON was 14 when his father pulled the car into a Detroit parking lot and told his son that he was a spy. For years Johnson believed his Dad was a diplomat with the State Department and lived all over the world with him,  but in fact, he was working for the CIA.  Johnson recounts this discovery and how he became part of the duplicity in his new memoir, “The Wolf and the Watchman.” Johnson, a former foreign correspondent, comes in to talk to Marty about his father’s secrets and how they shaped his own life.
