Ben looks at the US Supreme Court’s potential interpretations of the computer fraud and abuse act, Dave's got a report out of the UK on AI algorithm oversight, and later in the show, Dave's conversation with Nina Jankowicz, Disinformation Fellow from the Wilson Center on her book: How to Lose the Information War: Russia, Fake News, and the Future of Conflict.
