6: PRICKS & PRIVACY: needle spiking, piquerism, are our phones listening to us & more

Do phones listen to us? 

What on earth does our title mean? This week on Eavesdroppin’, we start off by talking about TV shows Michelle is obsessed with before Geordie moves on to the ser-i-ous topic of needle spiking. *DISCLAIMER: We are not victim blaming in any way, merely investigating thoughts and theories… Right, now that’s clear… What is needle spiking? Why has it become a new date-rape phenomena in the UK? Are women being pricked and injected, or is it something else? Who is The London Monster? What is Piquerism? And is unauthorized hair cutting assault? Is the phenomena actually needle spiking or drink spiking? Is it a real thing or scare mongering? Listen in to make your own mind up…

Then the pair move on to the issue of privacy… Well Michelle gets slightly ranty about it and is kind of shocked that no one seems to care about digital privacy anymore… Are we being listened to by our phones? Should we care? Would we trade convenience for privacy? And is it OK that the UK government creates a referendum to exit the EU but doesn’t ask us if we consent to having all of our online activity tracked and stored? What about CCTV – is surveillance without consent OK? Is having our privacy and freedoms taken away an issue? Or is it just a byproduct of the digital age that we just need to accept? Listen in to find out!

We hope you enjoy the episode and remember, wherever you are, whatever you do, just keep Eavesdroppin’!
