    089 - Queer Cybersecurity with Craig Terron & more

    This week Ash & Matt are joined by a friend, Craig Terron, who is here to talk about a research project he was involved with at work: Titled Online Surveillance, Censorship, and Discrimination for LGTQIA+ Community Worldwide. It is a crazy interesting document that looks at how using apps like Grindr & Her are potentially really unsafe and specifically in areas where being gay is a threat to your safety. How do governments access your data to target you? As if that wasn't enough, we have obviously packed it full of other gems like Spreadsheets and Friends With Benefits - Love a good rom-com :)

Love it!

I was a little late to the party but I’ve been enjoying binge listening over lockdown. It’s a great format and a perfect substitute for the pub chats we’ve all been missing. A lovely blend of honesty, humour and a hint of sass - Ash and Matt should be very proud!

Best friends to be....

I have started divulging in this very late in the day... but I have gone all in and started from Numero uno and I believe No.72 has just been released. I am now fully invested in these boys lives.... now on Ep. 10 within a week and it has been an emotional rollercoaster. Fits of laughter to some wet eyes, they don’t know it yet but they are my new best friends....
Great company on my commute to and from work, I am hooked. They are thirsty bi**hes and I bloody love it 🥰
