Welcome to The Gentleman Hacker ...



The podcast that explores human-centric issues of the tech media landscape.

    The Gentleman Hacker Series 1 Episode 1: Internet Shutdowns

    The Gentleman Hacker Series 1 Episode 1: Internet Shutdowns

    Dear Listener,

    Technology is not neutral. It shapes our media – From equality of access to freedom of expression, from human and cultural development to democracy itself.

    Technological structures are reflections of their creators, and defines who and what is important … who and what is ignored and … who or what holds power.

    Welcome to The Gentleman Hacker, the podcast that explores human-centric issues of the tech media landscape.

    The topic for this premier episode is the changing nature of Internet Shutdowns, where governments give the order and communication companies comply and switch off access to the Internet (or parts of it) for political purposes.



    We feature guests that highlight the experience of shutdowns, that are dedicated to improving methods of detecting them, and that are finding political ways to push back against them.



    They may already be Coming Soon near you …



    Yours Sincerely etc,



    The Gentleman Hacker, Esq.
