Airing on Thursday, March 26, 2015: First up, we talk with William McGeveran, Associate Professor, University of Minnesota Law School, about selling customer data in the RadioShack auction. Next, we take a look at Microsoft new policy that all (U.S.) vendors with 50 employees or more must offer their employees 10 days paid vacation and 5 days sick leave, or some combination thereof.  What impact might this have, and beyond publicity, what’s in it for Microsoft? And we'll also speak with Sarah Jeong, a tech policy journalist, about doxxing and swatting.
