In episode 16, Lucy Kind interviews Eva Galperin, the director of cybersecurity at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, an international non-profit digital rights group that promotes online civil liberties. Eva leads EFF's Threat Lab, where one of her focuses includes eradicating "stalkerware" - spyware used for domestic abuse. Eva explains how private companies are profiting by selling malware that allows abusers to track everything a victim does on their device.  She breaks down how these virtual risks lead to real-world harms, and why it's so important to design technology for the most marginalized members of society.
