Do we even care about privacy?

Listen 00:48:44

Guests: Adrienne LaFrance, Robyn Greene, Joseph Turow

Three years ago, Edward Snowden revealed the extent to which the American government, through the National Security Agency, surveilles citizens’ online and phone activity.  It was the biggest story of the year, dominating headlines and conversations. But during this year’s presidential campaign, privacy seems to have taken a backseat many other perennial issues.  Today on Radio Times, do Americans even care about privacy?  We’ll be joined by ADRIENNE LaFRANCE, staff writer at The Atlantic, who covers technology, ROBYN GREENE, policy counsel for the Open Technology Institute at New America, and by JOSEPH TUROW, professor of communication at Annenberg School of Communication at University of Pennsylvania.
