Welcome to the Contrafabulists podcast, Kin Lane and Audrey Watters' weekly discussion of the latest technology (and politics of technology) news.
(Apologies for the sound quality. We are in New York without our normal recording set-up. And apologies for the two f-bombs.)
In this episode, we talk about fake news and natural disasters, Facebook and political advertising, and the Equifax data breach.
Here are the stories we referenced:
- "Why the Equifax breach is very possibly the worst leak of personal info ever" via Ars Technica
- "Fake Russian Facebook Accounts Bought $100,000 in Political Ads" via The New York Times
- "Facebook Wins, Democracy Loses" by Siva Vaidhyanathan
Feedback is welcome. (You should email Kin with it though, not Audrey.)
