Hey Listeners, I want to tell you about a new True Crime mini series from WONDERY called SPY AFFAIR.
In 2016 news of Russian interference in the American presidential election shook the nation to its core. Two years later Maria Butina, an alleged Russian operative sent to America to influence US politics, was arrested on charges of being a foreign agent. She quickly found herself and the people around her embroiled in a massive FBI investigation.
Maria would be portrayed as a spy and a woman who strung a web of lies, all focused on completing her primary mission – influence government officials in positions of power to benefit her home country – Russia.
Wondery’s new Mini Series, Spy Affair, is an inside look at the shocking true story of a woman who started her time in America with a trip to Disneyland and ended it as a convicted criminal.
