In recent weeks we have come to learn that the National Security Agency has been conducting secret surveillance programs of Americans’ phone calls. Through a former employee, Edward Snowden, we have also learned of the NSA’s secret PRISM program, in which digital correspondence, such as emails, photos and video chats, are also being monitored and recorded.
In this episode we discuss the recent leaks in the NSA’s secret surveillance programs. We discuss the details of the programs, the legal basis for them, the motivation for whistleblower Edwin Snowden and where we go from here.
