This week, Fordham Conversations is all about spies and surveillance. WFUV's Connor Ryan reports on NYC's surveillance cameras and how some people feel their privacy is being invaded. Then, Chris Williams talks to Spy Store NYC owner Bob Leonard about different types of spying equipment and the reasons for using them. Fordham University professor Al Auster discusses how spies have been portrayed in film, and how that differs from actual espionage.
