On this week's episode, we're joined by Kathryn Gledhill-Tucker and Samantha Floreani to tackle some big questions about digital rights, predatory tech companies and regulation. 

Kathryn Gledhill-Tucker is a Nyungar technologist and digital rights activist who serves on the board of Electronic Frontiers Australia. Their work explores the intersection of activism, science-fiction, and technology in imagining radical futures and ushering them into existence.

Samantha Floreani is a digital rights activist and writer living on unceded Wurundjeri land. They also live on the internet and strive to make it a better place through their privacy advocacy and tech policy work as Program Lead for Digital Rights Watch.

You can read the article about queer online spaces and government regulation that Kat mentioned towards the end of the show here on Junkee.
