Nicole Perlroth is an award-winning cybersecurity journalist for The New York Times.
She is the author of the new book This Is How They Tell Me the World Ends: The Cyberweapons Arms Race.
Perlroth explains the existential threat that cyberwarfare and such digital weapons as computer viruses and “zero-day exploits” represent to an internet-connected society.
She also warns that individual hackers and organizations working for countries, corporations, terrorist groups, and other organizations can easily disrupt American and other societies by extorting and otherwise interfering with banks, hospitals, municipalities, and essential infrastructure such as telephones, gas, heat, electrical power plants, and the water supply.
And Perlroth shares her personal insights and experiences navigating the secretive world of hackers and cybersecurity.
Chauncey DeVega continues to warn that Rep. Liz Cheney is no ally or friend to the Democrats, liberals, progressives or other pro-democracy patriots. In reality, she represents the very right-wing forces that helped to birth American neofascism and Trumpism.
And Chauncey also reflects upon his experience of falling ill after the 2nd Covid vaccine shot and then suddenly feeling better and experiencing the joy of reliving his youth by watching Top Gun in the movie theater.
