    #1: GDPR madness and Justice Kavanaugh

    // We faced some audio problems: the audio quality decreases at around 0:40 but gets back to normal at 2:15. Sorry! //

    Benedikt got fed up surfing the web again. He stumbled upon an article in The Telegraph titled "GDPR 'means hackers can access all your data online'". As he hates paying for online journalism (the article was behind a paywall) he located its original source: NewStatesman America's piece called "GDPR has made it easier to access our own data - and for hackers to do so, too". And all of this has been set into motion by a tweet of Assistant Professor of Computer Science, Jean Yang.

    Eddie followed the developments of the last two weeks in the United States concerning Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Not only did Eddie get deep into the discussion surrounding Brett Kavenaugh's alleged sexual assault, but also the actual legal and human skills that the Justice possesses. Will this affect the Supreme Court in the future?

    Listen to Eddie and Benedikt ranting about these two topics to find out what's really going on.

    Introducing: Simply Untrue

    Welcome to Simply Untrue! In this episode 0, Benedikt and Eddie briefly introduce themselves and explain what's going on here in the first place. We then hear Eddie share his frustration, or rather quest for enlightenment, with the Australian approach to human rights. For the last 15 minutes or so we turn to something more likely to be recurring on this show: headlines and articles that just annoy the heck out of us. This week: the supposed meme ban in the European Union.
