Transatlantic Cable podcast, episode 81

March 7, 2019

When we were looking over the stories that we wanted to cover this week, Dave and I noticed that one theme seemed to take the lions’ share: privacy for kids online. As parents, we had to dig in a bit and talk more about these subjects.

Episode 81 kicks off with the latest at Facebook. Unlike what we’ve seen in many past weeks, this is not a privacy snafu, but rather cryptocurrency rumored to be coming from the social media giant (along with one from Telegram). From there, we move to a story that shows a paltry number of computers being upgraded to the latest version of Windows 10. We then head into the parenting stories of the week. First we look at a fine levied on TikTok by the FTC before closing out with a story on YouTube’s comment problems.
