ROBERT & DAYNA BAER
The Company We Keep
A Husband and Wife True-Life Spy Story
Hosted by Aimee Allison
This is a real portrait of CIA operative Robert Baer (portrayed by George Clooney in the film Syriana) and his CIA “shooter” wife, Dayna. They describe what happens when you try to leave “The Company” and the world of rogues, mobsters, and clandestine warriors who’ve become your best friends and worst enemies. He was known by many inside the Agency as the best operative working the Middle East.
A beautiful former Cal Berkeley student, she was an up-and-coming young Agency talent determined to make it as a spy and gun-wielding “shooter” - a femme Nikita. When they were sent on a mission together, they fell in love. This is the authentic story of that romance, of their trip deep down the rabbit hole revealing how intelligence games work, how spies operate in the field, including their personal costs. The Company We Keep is unlike any previous account of life in the CIA.
Robert Baer is the author of three New York Times bestsellers: See No Evil, Sleeping With the Devil, and The Devil We Know. He has become one of the most authoritative voices on American intelligence.
