BREACH PODCAST: The Equifax hack — this time it’s personal.

Click to listen to the trailer.

Why was Equifax hacked? Who was behind it? Who deserves the blame? And what should you do now? We’re asking all those questions, and providing most of the answers, in the second season of the Breach cast, dropping March 4.

Six months in the making, it’s *almost* here.  Together with co-host Alia Tavakolian, producer Janielle Kastner and the (ever-growing) team at Spoke Media, we investigated the Equifax hack from every angle. We talked to a small army of insiders, including the man that CEO Richard Smith described as the “human error” responsible for the hack. We talked to experts about grand questions, like the death of privacy and the role of the nation-states. And we talked to consumers who are fighting back, and winning (in small claims court! You’ll love hearing from them.)

The podcast drops early on Monday, but there’s a trailer out now to whet your appetite. You can listen using the embedded player below, or if that doesn’t work, click here  

Thanks as always to sponsor Carbonite, which was exactly the kind of hands-off supportive partner a project like this requires.

The six episodes of Breach will be published weekly, beginning Monday. I’ll have much more about each episode starting next week.
