This episode we discuss one of the most monumental pieces of legislation to be passed by a Western government in recent history. Australia’s Assistance and Access Bill was recently pushed through Parliament and has implications for almost anyone using the internet worldwide. We discuss what the bill says, what it allows government agencies to do and what effect it will have on both businesses and users of the internet.

As usual, we highlight and chat about a smattering of news, including rumours of a Facebook cryptocurrency (Facecoin?), record levels of worldwide debt and a mutual fund which is using blockchain technology to settle transfers. We also discuss an easy way to see if your data has been breached, and a listener recommendation for a thought-provoking TV show.
