Published on 16/03/2021

What does a Swiss company making encryption machines have to do with “the intelligence coup of the century”? Why did Swiss women have to wait so long to vote? 

Hear these stories and more on The Swiss Connection, our podcast that brings Swiss stories to the world with host Susan Misicka.

Our latest episode is dedicated to the story of Crypto AG, a precision engineering company making spy equipment including encryption machines. It’s a true story of spy agencies, international intrigue and secrets kept over nearly 70 years. You can find more information on the Crypto story  here, in a summary of the redacted “Minerva” document that we mention in the show.
