Listen to the episode:
Codebreakers are linguistic alchemists, a mystical tribe attempting to conjure sensible words out of meaningless symbols.
Secret messages, lost languages, black chambers, and sneaky spymasters. Crack our code to find the next meeting of book club, where we’re whispering about Simon Singh’s non-fiction exploration “The Code Book: The Science of Secrecy from Ancient Egypt to Quantum Cryptography.” Catrina nerds out about linguistics, Aurelien dreams of the crossword-solving spy life, and we both have existential anxiety about quantum computing and the future of privacy.
