THE PENTAGON’S BRAIN The Secretive DARPA Agency — a Podcast

In this week’s podcast, WhoWhatWhy’s Jeff Schechtman talks with Annie Jacobsen, the best-selling author of Area 51: An Uncensored History of America’s Top Secret Military Base, about her new history of the Defense Department’s secret, powerful, and sometimes controversial military science R&D agency. Jacobsen’s new book, released on September 22, is titled The Pentagon’s Brain: An Uncensored History of DARPA, America’s Top-Secret Military Research Agency.

In this first-ever full-scale history of DARPA, Jacobsen relies on inside sources, interviews, private documents, and declassified memos to paint a picture of DARPA as the “Pentagon’s Brain,” which she traces from its Cold War inception in 1958 to the present.
