Finger power & Spyware scandals

This week we dive into the biggest spyware scandal of the year, Pegasus, that was sold to authoritarian regimes and is being used to target activists, politicians and journalists. Plus, the power is in our hands – or rather, fingertips – with a new device that can generate small amounts of electricity from finger sweat or pressure. And US President Joe Biden says that social media is killing people, while beyond-the-grave deep fakes get us pondering the moral and ethical limitations of the technology. Guests: Rae Johnston, co-host of the Queens of the Drone Age podcast & Josh Taylor, technology reporter at The Guardian
