Enemy of the [Surveillance] State

14 - NSA, Encryption, and Congress

June 22, 2020

This week, I discuss the corruption of the NSA and how its very existence threatens not only the privacy of Americans, but the very security it promises us in exchange for that privacy, and the ongoing war on encryption. I  also introduce a new segment that I’ll call “messing with the scammers,” this week on EOTSS!
