Episode 6: The Code/Law Switch and Informational Injury with Kristian Stout

Tech Policy Grind

This week on TPG we grabbed Kristian Stout to talk about how he made the leap from programmer to think-tanker, advice for 20 year olds everywhere, and a substantive, in-the-weeds discussion on FCC and FTC authority, informational injury, privacy and all sorts of wonky wonderfulness. Tune in, we think you’ll like it. (And, if you do, don’t forget to follow us on twitter, and head over to iTunes to rate and review the show – we’re looking for any and all feedback!)

Stay tuned to the end of the episode for a special note about upcoming episodes! On Jan. 29th Tech Policy Grind will be at State of the Net, the country’s largest internet policy conference, to record a series of brief interviews with panel speakers about topics ranging from AI to Internet Governance to Cyber Security and Fake News. Keep your eyes peeled on our twitter @techpolicygrind for more info!
