Transatlantic Cable podcast, episode 101

Jeff and Dave discuss the $5 billion fine for Facebook, Google Home listening ,and more.

For episode 101 of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast, Dave and I jump from one side of the pond to the other for a number of security related topics before ending with a story completely out of the security space.

Our first story looks at a new Facebook UK service, the result of a man winning a lawsuit against fake ads using his image. From there, we stay on the topic of Facebook and its whopping $5 billion fine from the FTC.

Our third story of the week takes a look at how people are now learning that Google employees are listening to recordings from Google Home. Following that story, we discuss how smart meters in the UK are switching to Welsh. We close out the podcast with a nonsecurity story that was too weird not to bring up.
