There’s a threat to the entire Internet lurking in the devices you may have in your home. Hackers are using networks of exploited and hacked Internet Of Things (IOT) devices (cameras, thermostats, lights, etc.) to direct overwhelming attacks at sites and services on the Internet. While this may not seem like a threat to you personally, it actually endangers everyone that uses the Internet (and even those who don’t). Join us and find out more about this threat.

SPECIAL GUEST: Michele Battle-Fisher. Health, and how we develop, treat, and enhance it, is something that affects all of us. Policies are frequently developed by those in power with little regard for those that have to live under those policies. From the water issues in Flint, Michigan, to the “soda tax” proposed by a variety of cities, these policies can have a wide variety of receptions and results. In this episode, we’re joined by systems thinker Michele Battle-Fisher to take a look at how the complex web of variables interacts to promote (or discourage) health outcomes. Recorded 9/25/2016.
