Season 3 / Episode 41
CYBER is a new podcast from Motherboard, a very well known and respected technology blog and online magazine.
The episode you’ll hear shortly is about the shady market of data aggregators and brokers who sell smartphone location data to bounty hunters, bail bondsmen, landlords, used car salesmen, and anyone who can afford it. We learn how bounty hunters go right up to the edge of what the law allows and use "neuro linguistic mind manipulation" to get people to give them information.
