How do you arrest more than 800 suspected criminals around the world? Get them to use an app that happens to be controlled by worldwide law enforcement. We dive into the weird world of the ANOM app and the role it played in what is shaping up to be one of the biggest crime stories of the year. Also - dozens of the world’s most popular websites like the New York Times, Twitch and Spotify disappeared offline last week… and it’s all thanks to one company that underpins a huge part of the internet we experience. Plus are you more likely to swipe right on a dating app for someone who’s vaccinated? And why are we wasting our time on Zoom when we should be making holograms of each other? Guests: Ariel Bogle, Analyst at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute & Sam Koslowski, Co-founder of The Daily Aus.
