In this inaugural episode of Broken Mirrors, Marc and Tom talk about where they want to see the series going and the long history of Canada-U.S. relations in intelligence and military matters. In the second segment, they are joined by Ian MacLeod and engage in a freewheeling discussion on changes in journalism, the effects of technology and the Snowden Affair. In the third segment, Tom looks at a risk assessment of the Snowden revelations and asks who and what have really been damaged.
