Hey, you’re listening to Tech Policy Grind, a podcast from the Internet Law and Policy Foundry where we hammer out the latest, at the intersection of law and technology.

My name is Emory Roane, and Today, Joe Jerome joins us as we talk to Fred Jennings, Associate Corporate Counsel at GitHub, about bug bounty programs, the pitfalls businesses need to keep in mind when setting up bug bounty programs of their own, and the challenges and highs of working at one the coolest Microsoft acquisition yet, right? Seriously though, Github is an awesome company and I hope you enjoy this peek into what its like working in house at a tech company that’s managed to grow to more than 30 million active users while still sticking to its open source heart and soul.
