#6 Talking Privacy with Librarians

Libraries have always been places for free and unfettered intellectual exploration. But how is this threatened by the inherent leakiness and insecurity of the networks we use to access information these days? In this episode we talk to Alison Macrina, Bill Marden, Melissa Morrone, Chuck McAndrew, and Phoebe Stein about privacy policies, CryptoParties, Tor relays, and other adventures. CORRECTION: The episode says that Chuck's surveillance self-defense courses can be found at leblibrary.org -- the website is actually leblibrary.com.
