Austin author, Pulitzer Prize-winner, and terrorism expert Lawrence Wright (The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11) was interviewed in this past weekend's This American Life episode for a piece called "The Spy Who Bugged Me," in which Wright details, quite chillingly, how he discovered that his phone had been tapped under the Terrorist Surveillance Act.
