EFF Unveils New Podcast, How to Fix the Internet

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), with the support of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation's Program in Public Understanding of Science and Technology, launched the first season of the podcast How to Fix the Internet. It features “conversations that can plot a pathway out of today’s tech dystopias,” including on topics such as “ways out of the big tech lock-in, protecting our connected devices, and keeping texts and emails safe from prying eyes. …”

The hosts are EFF team members Cindy Cohn, executive director, and Danny O’Brien, special advisor. Guests will include comedian Marc Maron, cybersecurity expert Tarah Wheeler, and Harlan Yu, the executive director of technology justice nonprofit Upturn.

“We can’t create a better world unless we can envision it, and these conversations are needed to help us see how the world will look when technology better supports, protects, and empowers users,” says Cohn.

For more information, read the press release.
