I’m currently on the road and unable to record any podcasts. But I am working and came across some potential topics for future Private Citizen episodes today. So let me just park a few links here for future reference. They might help you as well, just be aware of the source of each story – obviously something I always carefully examine on the podcast.

I’ve just released another episode of The Private Citizen, hopefully one of a couple this week. In this one, I examine an example of exceptionally bad journalism that hit the world recently. I’ve discussed this kind of thing before, but sadly, the journalistic landscape seems to be getting worse, not better.

The Private Citizen 85: The Latest in Despicable Journalism

I’ve also updated the album art for the show again. As you can see, I am aggressively fighting for your right to have something to hide!

This week on The Private Citizen, I explain Steve Gibson’s SQRL, which is a really cool solution to the problems we all face with passwords on the internet.

The Private Citizen 84: Steve Gibson’s Squirrel
