This episode is made with, to & by STEAL THIS SHOW’s glorious patrons! If you’d like to support the show you’ll get access to a Slack channel & the show’s creators, uncut interviews, and more. Don’t get it twisted, YOUR support is really important.

In this special episode, we bring together STEAL THIS SHOW Patreon supporters Eric Barch and Joe Matheny to discuss a wide range of topics from filter bubbles and Jamie’s ‘bubble swapping’ concept, Joe’s attempts to create a standard for handling personal data online way back in the 90s, and the results of our mysterious, short-lived Tor spying experiment, Project Dirtbag. Project Dirtbag might have died a quick death, but the Patreon specials will live on!

    Crashes at 11:35 (and any point past that). Both here and on iTunes. Maybe it’s just my device but this hasn’t ever happened before. Hmm.

      Hi Supergloom! We couldn’t figure this one out but have uploaded a new version to see if it was an upload problem. Will try to get the torrent swapped out, too! Cheers – j
