Episode Info: Listen on YouTube This episode we talk about how you can get off Google, shut down your Onedrive and take control of your data. From files to calendars, social media to password managers, there is an incredible amount of self-hosted alternatives to popular platforms out there just waiting to be used. The best part? They’re all pretty easy to use – and we take you through many of them this episode. As if that wasn’t enough, we also have a bumper selection of weird and wonderful news to discuss, including the latest from Facebook’s Libra cryptocurrency, Africa’s manufactured smartphones, China’s worrying new facial recognition measures and scientists implanting memories in bird brains. BlockFi (a Bitcoin interest account platform) is in the spotlight for our ‘Cool Tool’ and we also chat about a couple of new ways to stay private and secure on the internet.
