David Brin and The Transparent Society on National Progressive Talk Radio (AUDIO)

Last night on National Progressive Talk Radio, I began my co-hosting duties with regular host, Sean Prophet and our brilliant guest, Dr. David Brin. Dr. Brin is a celebrated science fiction author, having received the Hugo, Locus, Campbell, and Nebula awards. Perhaps his most well-known book is “The Postman,” which was later turned into a film by Kevin Costner. In addition to his well-regarded fiction, Dr. Brin has also written extensively on security and surveillance in the modern world. His non-fiction book, The Transparent Society, earned Brin the Freedom of Speech Award of the American Library Association. Our 74 minute conversation with Dr. Brin focused largely on privacy, security, and surveillance. From wikileaks and Edward Snowden to the NSA, Dr. Brin offered a unique perspective on what it means to have privacy in the information age. You can hear that full conversation below.
