FUTURE LEFT PODCAST EP.5: Big Data's Privacy Dilemma

FUTURE LEFT PODCAST EP.5: Big Data's Privacy Dilemma

This week's main discussion is about big data and the implications--particularly on privacy--of the wide net cast by corporations and governments on all 1s and 0s generated by citizens. Casey and Adam also talk through their picks for the stories of the week:  five knuckleheads that want to protect Exxon from their climate cover-up, racial bias in jury selection, and an honorable mention by the mundane yet revolutionary utilities of 3D printing.
