Entertaining and informative

Excellent reporting on the impact of data in our lives. So often this kind of reporting gets the details wrong or sensationalizes things. This podcast is pretty much on the nose.

Being able to sleep soundly is over rated

This fun and terrifying podcast covers the various serious security breaches and their impact. Full of useful information this may be habit forming and have side effects of: anger, fear, and restless activism

Humorous, investigative, proactive

A great combo of all 3 elements. Fascinating deep dive. Too bad the companies declined to participate.
