Episode Details

Original tape date: October 6, 2016.

Noel Field came from solid Quaker stock. He completed Harvard in two years, and joined the foreign service in the 1930s where he wrote speeches for two Secretaries of State. He then became a spy for Stalin. In her sobering book, True Believer, Kati Marton relates Field’s amazing story, and tells Jim Zirin how he came to betray his country for an ideology that eventually cast him and three members of his family into a Soviet gulag.
