There's a strong parallel (to me at least) between the transparent and always monitored society posited in this podcast and that of the late, lamented, Iain M Banks' Culture novels, where everyone could, if they wanted to, monitor everyone else and privacy was more a product of not being interested than concealing one's activities (and no I'm not suggesting that the desire to conceal is a bad thing) or not having them being monitored.
To quote Wikipedia ...
"At one point it is said that if the Culture actually had written laws, the sanctity of one's own thoughts against the intrusion of others would be the first on the books.
This gives some measure of privacy and protection; though the very nature of Culture society would, strictly speaking, make keeping secrets irrelevant: most of them would be considered neither shameful nor criminal."
Any podcast which makes me think is a good podcast and this was a great podcast.
