33: Equifax and the future of your data

COPY
Ever heard the one about the frog in a pot of boiling water?

In the wake of the Equifax hack (and the one before that, and the one before that … ), how should you think about credit, data security and online privacy? And what could the European Union teach American companies about protecting your data? Then: “Outlander” showrunner Ronald D. Moore answers our Make Me Smart question, and we answer some of your questions about #NoConfederate and our interview with April Reign.  

Mentioned on the show: If you want to learn more about the history of credit reporting agencies in the United States, you can read Josh Lauer’s book  “Creditworthy: A History of Consumer Surveillance and Financial Identity in America.” And if you want to read more about why the idea of a show called “Confederate” upsets people before they’ve even seen it, we’ve got some links for you at our website

None of us is as smart as all of us.

No matter how bananapants your day is, “Make Me Smart” is here to help you through it all— 5 days a week.

It’s never just a one-way conversation. Your questions, reactions, and donations are a vital part of the show. And we’re grateful for every single one.

Donate any amount to become a Marketplace Investor and help make us smarter (and make us smile!) every day.
