Loud & Clear: September 5th, 2018
In what was *not* my regular weekly segment (because Monday was Labor Day), I joined Brian Becker and John Kiriakou to talk about encryption backdoors and the testimony of Sheryl Sandberg and Jack Dorsey in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
The intelligence services of the Five Eyes nations-the US, UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand-are quietly warning technology firms that they want access to all encrypted emails, text messages, and voice communications, and they are threatening to compel the companies to give it to them if they don't do so voluntarily. Meanwhile, big tech CEOs are testifying to Congress. Brian and John speak with web developer and technologist Chris Garaffa.
