View Part 2 here: 

Jim Olson was the founding board chair for 40 Days for Life. He's also a retired CIA spy. And he sat down with us for a special two-part series of The 40 Days for Life Podcast. 

In this episode, Jim shares wild stories you won't hear anywhere else as well as expert insights on America's past, present and future, including:

  • His heartbreak upon learning of a close colleague who became the most notorious double agent of the Cold War;
  • The difficult conversation he had with his oldest son after Iranian terrorists tracked down--and threatened to kill--his family;
  • His fears for the future of America and why the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan has weakened the U.S. worldwide;
  • The intense moral dilemmas that come with spying.

Jim will be back again next week to discuss 40 Days for Life, his faith journey, and why abortion is such a critical issue globally.
