Techdirt Podcast Episode 60: Barry Eisler On Truth, Fiction And The Surveillance State (Part One)

from the which-one-is-stranger dept

Those of you who’ve heard our previous episodes with Barry Eisler know that he has a unique insight into many of the topics we discuss here at Techdirt, stemming from the wide variety of perspectives he’s had in his past: as an operative for the CIA, as a tech industry lawyer, and now as a bestselling author (his new book, The God’s Eye View, explores a plausible future inspired by the Snowden revelations). Recently, Mike conducted an interview with Barry at the Commonwealth Club of California, and on this week’s podcast we’ve got the first half of that interview, with a fascinating discussion about the truth (and fiction) of the modern surveillance state.
