In this slightly depressing pre-Christmas episode we talk to Cindy Cohn of the Electronic Frontier Foundation about her work in digital rights, how we can build a more free digital realm, and the EFF's issue of McSweeneys, "The End of Trust". We then talk about homelessness and how it's been made much, much worse by the Tories. We promise to have a more cheerful episode next week. Merry Christmas!
