Is it realistic to protect any of the data we share on the internet? Can any company or state promise us privacy? And how can we work to help each other share and consume all of that data conscientiously? Today we’re joined by Brett Gaylor, a Canadian interactive filmmaker producing documentaries about data, privacy and their real human impact. Brett is already a major figure in the documentary community: he received the International Documentary Association Award for best series, The Prix Gemeaux for Best Interactive Series, three Webby Awards and a Peabody Award. And yet he’s quick to call himself an imposter! We spoke with Brett about identity, from the impression of being an imposter to the power of the pandemic to change our perception life, both online and offline. We discussed opinionated producers, informed consent and much more, as always… We even had a special guest appearance from Google’s voice assistant! This show is created by Storm, a podcast production studio, and Anon, a creative anonymous conscious social network. Check it out at  and download the app to explore the bright side of anonymity.
