By sheer accident, I’ve brought Heather back to the show almost exactly a year since the last time. This one is a little more personal than most shows and you even get a little glimpse at how our weird family works.
Hosts: Heather, Shamus. Episode edited by Issac.

05:57 ESA Data “Breach”
If you make no effort to secure something, is it still a “breach” when it falls into the wrong hands?
During the show Heather said there was “no reason” for the ESA to collect home addresses. After the show she came up with an alternate explanation: The home addresses are there so publishers can send journalists free crap.
Still, seems like this sort of information ought to be compartmentalized and not stored in a single PDF where every exhibitor gets automatic access to every journalist.

And it’s gotten worse since we recorded this!
And this isn’t the first time they’ve done it!
