We live online. We share our Twitter handles, not our phone numbers; people know you from your posts, not your physical presence; terabytes of data are created, posted and stored online every day, and every minute scrolling Instagram consumes 1.5 megabytes of it. But how many of those minutes do you spend thinking about what apps and websites know about you? Can we control and protect the data that we share voluntarily — or involuntarily? How vulnerable is our privacy?

“Who is that?” explores the hidden world of data breaches, legislative flaws and behavioral traps of the online space. Each episode takes on a different facet of life online with cyber experts, security advocates, lawyers, activists and researchers telling the real story about the pluses and pitfalls awaiting us in the digital world.

    It’s hard enough to sell major corporations on the importance of protecting their users’ data, or convince the government that privacy is, in fact, a human right. Is there any hope for teaching each and every smartphone user out there to think before they tweet?

    I’m pretty sure that today’s guest would argue that there is. Joining us is none other than the Data Diva herself, Debbie Reynolds. She is a technologist, thought leader and consultant navigating the intersection of “Data Privacy, Technology, and Law,” advising everyone from the Department of Commerce to the New York State Bar Association. Most importantly, she hosts “Data Diva Talks Privacy,” regularly among the top data security and privacy podcasts online.

    You balance between being didactic and letting your audience come to its own conclusions | Brett Gaylor

    You balance between being didactic and letting your audience come to its own conclusions | Brett Gaylor

    Is it realistic to protect any of the data we share on the internet? Can any company or state promise us privacy? And how can we work to help each other share and consume all of that data conscientiously?

    Today we’re joined by Brett Gaylor, a Canadian interactive filmmaker producing documentaries about data, privacy and their real human impact. Brett is already a major figure in the documentary community: he received the International Documentary Association Award for best series, The Prix Gemeaux for Best Interactive Series, three Webby Awards and a Peabody Award. And yet he’s quick to call himself an imposter!

    We spoke with Brett about identity, from the impression of being an imposter to the power of the pandemic to change our perception life, both online and offline. We discussed opinionated producers, informed consent and much more, as always… We even had a special guest appearance from Google’s voice assistant!

    There is a huge difference between “can’t do evil” and “won’t be evil” | Jonathan Victor

    There is a huge difference between “can’t do evil” and “won’t be evil” | Jonathan Victor

    How will the future look like with the technological boost we experience today? Will we be still able to control our identification data or will it be taken by tech giants and intermediaries? What is the difference between Web2 and Web3, and why is it crucial to be aware about these concepts?

    Our today’s guest is Jonathan Victor, the Ecosystem Lead of NFTs & Gaming at Protocol Labs, an open-source R&D lab building protocols, tools, and services to radically improve the internet and help us navigate the digital future.Together with Jonathan we spoke about the connection between design applications and data leaks, tackled the possible conflict between data identification and Web3, discussed what is in common between a movie ticket buyer and visitor of any website and if we have brain chips in the nearest future…And, of course, that’s only a tip of the iceberg!

    We share all kinds of information about ourselves without anyone asking us to: posting photos on social media, arguing on Twitter, and even by buying tickets to travel internationally.

    How do scientists study this data? What are the psychological and anthropological ramifications of our love for “sharing”? And how do tech giants treat their own internal “scientists” and “scholars”?

    Our today’s guest is Emily Martin, Professor Emerita of Anthropology at New York University. Emily is also a groundbreaking author, most recent of  “Experiments of the Mind”, a book that offers an inside view of the experimental practices of cognitive psychology and how they can explain the allure of social media.

    We spoke with Emily about the addictive nature of social media, the ethics of scientific research, our self-presentation online versus offline, and much, much more.

    Think before you click | Ellen Helsper

    Think before you click | Ellen Helsper

    How does your age affect your access to information? What about where you were born? Your family? Your first language? Does the internet give us the tools to go beyond those circumstances, or does it reinforce them instead? After all, the platforms we use every day were created by a handful of geniuses in Silicon Valley, but the majority of their billions-strong user bases don’t live anywhere near there — or anything like those select few developers.

    Our today’s guest is Ellen Helsper, Professor of Digital Inequalities in the Department of Media and Communications at LSE. Her scientific work focuses on understanding the relationships between digital and social inequalities, and researching the links between general vulnerability and online marginalization amongst younger and older generations.

    We talked to Ellen about “digital natives,” inclusivity in the online and offline worlds, the economics and politics behind public-private partnerships in the digital sphere, and far too much more to list here.

    You can have security without privacy, but you can’t have privacy without security | Bill Mew

    We consume and produce gigabyte after gigabyte of content online every day. Guess what: that data can be used to identify us. How safe is that information, though? Who actually has access to it? The government? Researchers? Other people? In this episode we dive deeper into how different countries (the EU, the US and Australia) treat data privacy and security.

    Our guest today is Bill Mew, the CEO of CrisisTeam.co.uk, a firm specializing in crisis management in the digital space. He’s also one of the global leaders in digital ethics in the constant search for the balance between meaningful protection and maximizing the economic and social value of the online world. His twitter: https://twitter.com/BillMew

    By the way, Bill has recently been shortlisted for Privacy champion of the year by PICASSO - https://twitter.com/BillMew/status/1577990463679856644?s=20&t=EQz0gWhdpIIU84D1KEni6g - stay tuned!
