India McKinney is the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s director of federal affairs. She joins the podcast this week to talk about privacy and data protection at a time when many anticipate the Supreme Court will roll back reproductive healthcare rights. In this episode, India and Jared talk about concerns that online data could be used by those wanting to punish people seeking abortions. Then, they share their takes on the letter Democrats in Congress sent to Google, concerned that Google’s location tracking practices could enable that threat. Later on, India and Jared go over what average people can do to limit the data collected on them. Also, what can lawmakers and regulators do to be better advocates for internet privacy in the US?
