We all know that our internet privacy is being eroded, but how far down the rabbit hole have we really gone? Is it even possible to be anonymous anymore? On this episode, we discuss the many ways we are surveilled and the power privacy has. Does data control us? Is privacy an obsolete concept? These and other questions illustrate how much corporate and state access to our data has changed society. Is freedom worth sacrificing for safety and convenience? Is continued surveillance compatible at all with civil liberties? Join us as we seek answers.
