In this episode, we meet two Dangerous Internet Hackers from 2600 and the radio show Off The Hook, to discuss how hacking became so important to politics -- from Russians messing with elections to Volkswagen lying about emissions. We also check in on Chelsea Manning and the Cablegate leaks, and look at the role hacking has as part of a future political resistance. Plus: when entities like The Pirate Bay are able to launch a meaningful assault on the centuries-old edifice of copyright, has the establishment woken up to the power of hackers to shape our culture?

In this episode, we meet Ryan Shea, co-founder of Blockstack -- the bold, ambitious project to create a new, decentralised internet in which users own their data and keep control of how their apps run, not Big Content. We discuss why the internet needs re-decentralising, if and how to pull users away from reliance on monopoly platforms like Facebook and Google, and look at some of the interesting disruptions being caused by blockchain based currencies. Plus, Ryan and Jamie float a scheme for a blockchain-powered 'rare meme' economy - drop us a line if you want to get involved!
