Kim Philby: The communist double agent who infiltrated Britain’s MI6 & defected to the Soviet Union (E1082)

On this episode, we speak to James Hanning, author of ‘Love & Deception: Philby in Beirut’, focusing on the life of communist double agent Kim Philby, who infiltrated Britain’s MI6 and passed secrets to the Soviet Union, detailing his time in Beirut, Lebanon. He discusses Philby’s motivations for turning to communism and eventually defecting to the Soviet Union, why no one in Britain’s intelligence services seemed to suspect him, the part of his life spent in Beirut, how Philby eventually fell into depression, and much more.
