Speaker for June meeting: Jason Fagone

Elizebeth Friedman "The Woman Who Smashed Codes"
Jason Fagone and Deborah Bonanni discuss the relatively unknown cryptographer Elizebeth Friedman,
her beginnings and remarkable achievements in codebreaking -- including in foreign languages she did not know -- her alliance and marriage to NSA "founder" William Friedman;
her work at Riverbank Labs; Rum running; and many other hidden aspects of an outstanding (at times astonishing) "in the shadows" life assisting the nation.
The interview runs 37 minutes and includes several Q&As.
