Well, how about 2021 so far, eh? We REALLY try hard not to get political, but tech is so heavily tangled in politics right now that it is SUPER hard not to talk politics.

We kicked off the episode focused more on how the events of 2020, the quick jump to platforms like Zoom and more led to a further degradation of our on-line privacy protection -- as if there was much there in the first place!

Then we moved on to what we both agr...
