Nicole Perlroth

Nicole Perlroth’s book This Is How They Tell Me the World Ends is a masterpiece on the topic of cyberwar and the zero-day hacks that make it deadly. This episode is required listening for anyone curious about the state of global cyberwarfare today, and how it affects everyday life.

Join us as we explore with Perlroth the strange new digital battlefields that seamlessly connect to our phones, cars and smart appliances–a cyberscape where mistakes are weaponized and everything has a secret backdoor. If you’ve ever wondered how easy it is to be hacked, this reporter’s account of the zero degrees of separation between us, the spies and the people they spy is a good place to start.

And if spies aren’t your thing, there’s a Tin Foil Swan on proper app hygiene.
