20: The Enforcer

The latest on Uber, plus FTC Commissioner Terrell McSweeny talks internet privacy and protecting the open internet.

Enforcers abound on this week’s podcast. With help from Former Attorney General Eric Holder, Uber took on a series of recommendations to save itself from its own workplace culture, plus CEO Travis Kalanick is taking a leave of absence. But are there larger lessons for tech? Then we’re talking with FTC Commissioner Terrell McSweeny about internet privacy and why she believes the open internet still needs a regulatory safe space. Plus, McSweeny answers our Make Me Smart question, and we have the results of our unofficial “Delete Twitter” Twitter poll.
