In this episode of The Privacy Advisor Podcast, Joe Jerome, CIPP/US, talks about how growing up in the cornfields of Iowa helped shape his passion for privacy — specifically, his sense of autonomy. Privacy is a tool to push back at the world and its encroachment on our lives, Jerome says. His role as policy counsel at the Center for Democracy & Technology allows him to do the kind of work he feels is meaningful for the protection of our "digital selves" and for understanding how technology is impacting our values. In this fun-loving episode, Jerome also discusses the fact that it's possible he's a vampire, why robots might take over, and how the future of data transfers may, in fact, be via carrier pigeon unless the EU and U.S. can make nice.
