Tonight: Is it safe to use the new Covid Alert app? with Daniel Kahn Gillmor, aka dkg
LIVE EVENT this Thursday, Oct 22, starting 7pm Eastern. Sign up here for Skeptech: Smile for the Camera, a live event via Zoom! We'll hear from drone expert Faine Greenwood, Zoom magician Andy Deemer, and we'll watch a new paranoid video from WFMU's own People Like Us. I have a few comments, too, as host. Put on your tin foil hat, turn on that camera, and let's meet up on the fully surveilled service called Zoom! Tickets are just ten bucks, and all proceeds go to WFMU as part of our October Hellraiser. -mark
