Full Episode Here:


Elizebeth Friedman: Cryptanalyst Pioneer

Film Description
Based on the book The Woman Who Smashed Codes: A True Story of Love, Spies, and the Unlikely Heroine Who Outwitted America's Enemies, The Codebreaker reveals the fascinating story of Elizebeth Smith Friedman, the groundbreaking cryptanalyst whose painstaking work to decode thousands of messages for the U.S. government would send infamous gangsters to prison in the 1930s and bring down a massive, near-invisible Nazi spy ring in WWII. Her remarkable contributions would come to light decades after her death, when secret government files were unsealed. But together with her husband, the legendary cryptologist William Friedman, Elizebeth helped develop the methods that led to the creation of the powerful new science of cryptology and laid the foundation for modern codebreaking today.

The film highlights this incredible woman's contributions to strategic war cryptology development with the limitations of being an invaluable person, who is a woman, in US military spy history.

Hello, everyone! I have been thinking about this post for a few days. I was trying to decide what to do with my 14,000th post.

I decided to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Taught by my grandmother and as a former resident of Puerto Rico, I continue to celebrate even after some have trashed, burned and packed away the tree.

Last night, I would have put hay and water under my bed, for the camels and the donkeys. This morning I would have opened up the gifts left for me by the three kings. We'd eat lots of wonderful food and share loads of hugs and kisses. Then we'd take down the tree and pack it away with all the freshly made memories ready to wait for celebrations later in the year. The holiday season finally ending with the celebration of Epiphany, Three King's Day, Old Christmas.

So, Merry (Old) Christmas everyone. I hope you and those dear to you have a wonderful 2021. Thanks for sharing this memory with me. I love you.
