Ep. #47 show notes:&

Recorded Feb. 15, 2019

We are joined by special guest Michelle Dennedy, a vice president and the chief privacy officer at Cisco. This is a long episode that is worth every minute — covering everything from the modern privacy landscape, privacy as a fundamental human right, and all the ways you didn’t know underwear can protect you. We were a bit concerned about having a VP on, but after Michelle knocked us around a bit we figured out what was up. However, if this is the last EP you see listed, I think we all know what happened.
