Annie Jacobsen at LATFOB

Annie Jacobsen and I sat down at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books to discuss her most recent book, Operation Paperclip: The Secret Intelligence Program to Bring Nazi Scientists to America. Along the way we also discussed the TV adaptation of her Area 51: An Uncensored History of America’s Top Secret Military Base by Chris Carter of X-Files fame as well as who has optioned Paperclip. Spoiler alert: His partner optioned—and is directing—the film version of Unbroken.

I also mentioned some of the articles that Annie Jacobsen wrote for LA, The Los Angeles Times Magazine when I was its editor in chief. Links to articles written by Annie Jacobsen are directly below:
