In the latest episode, we follow up on some themes from 020, discussing the incident(s) in Charlottesville, the aftermath, and the role that technology played in organizing the protests and counter-protests, disseminating by-the-minute events of the rallies, and crowd-sourcing the investigation into violent perpetrators.

Normally, we steer clear of politics unless it directly relates to programming, technology, or cyberpunk themes, but Charlottesville hits close to home, so talking about it was something cathartic and necessary.
