Celebrated NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden explains the mass surveillance of Americans by means of their cell phones

He explains how both the government and Big Tech companies capture and use your data. How they record your every movement. And how they collude to prevent you from stopping all that data capture.

The talk reveals Snowden to be, not only a brilliant technician, but a complex, humane and caring person.

Edward Snowden

Snowden's talk is taken from an interview with video blogger Joe Rogan (*The Joe Rogan Experience," #1368, October 2019). I have lightly edited the talk for radio. Many thanks to Rogan and Snowden both.

New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "benign neglect") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
