On the evening of June 23, in the United States, millions of women went to bed with a Constitutional right to choose to have an abortion, and they went to bed with the many assurances that are tied to that right—to speak about getting an abortion, to organize and provide support to those seeking abortions, to search for abortion services safely online, to di

When good-faith hacking gets people arrested, with Harley Geiger: Lock and Code S03E14

The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, or CFAA, is a decades-old hacking law in the United Stat

At the start of the global coronavirus pandemic, nearly everyone was forced to learn about the “supply chain.” Immediate stockpiling by an alarmed (and from a smaller share, opportunistic) public led to an almost overnight disappearance of hand sanitizer, bottled water, toilet paper, and face masks.

Hunting down your data with Whitney Merrill: Lock and Code S03E11

Why data protection and privacy are not the same, and why that matters: Lock and Code S03E09
