Tech Talk: Civil Liberties & Smart Wall Technology

2016-04-20 CDT Tech Talk LONG logo

CDT’s Tech Talk is a podcast where we dish on tech and Internet policy, while also explaining what these policies mean to our daily lives. You can find Tech Talk on SoundCloud iTunes, and Google Play, as well as Stitcher and TuneIn.

After a nice sabbatical (thank you CDT!) I am back. Thank you to our producer Tim for hosting Tech Talk while I was away.

I could not think of a better way to return than to talk with CDT’s Emma Llanso and Mana Azarmi. In this episode, Mana talks about civil liberties concerns that come with a proposed “smart wall” on the southern border of the US. After that, Emma shares the latest on legal challenges to FOSTA, the bill aimed at addressing online trafficking, but that is having serious unintended impacts on free speech.

These are two important topics that will continue to play out over the coming year. Stay tuned!
