Because we know you can’t get enough of it, we’re talking about election security again in this episode. Our Senior Technologist Maurice Turner gives a report from DEF CON’s Voting Village. Not surprisingly, hackers yet again exposed some glaring vulnerabilities in America’s voting infrastructure.

And then we talk to Tiana Epps-Johnson, the Founder and Executive Director of the Center for Technology and Civic Life about how her organization is working to make the internet improve the democratic process – and yes, that includes elections.
