Excited about this podcast and future discussions of tech and government!
We need more discussions about topics that a lot of members of Congress seem not to understand too well.
Fun and Serious
This podcast has a nice way of diving deeply into tech policy while keeping it light. Topics include privacy, net neutrality, international data, and how to be successful as an app maker. If you build apps for a living, or even has a hobby, this is well worth listening to stay informed about laws and regulations that may affect your app.
Engaging & in depth conversation about important tech news and issues. Looking forward to next month!
