It's really kind of a remarkable story, when you think about it. Max Schrems, a law student in Austria, does a stint abroad at Santa Clara University School of Law. A Facebook executive comes to his class to talk business. Schrems digests what he's heard and decides he's got issue issue with the way Facebook is handling EU data given national security authorities' potential access to it. He files a complaint with the Irish Data Protection Commissioner and, in the end, after a whole lot of legal back-and-forth, the European Commission invalidates a Safe Harbor, putting thousands of companies who'd been relying on it to transfer data overseas in a big-time lurch. It didn't necessarily make him popular. 

In this podcast, Schrems talks about his ongoing case, which he describes as getting ping-ponged around because no one wants to actually deal with it. He talks about why he doesn’t think privacy is his life’s work, why he doesn’t think comparisons to Snowden make sense, and why it’s time for privacy pros to think about a culture shift. Oh, and he also makes one thing clear: He’s not Jesus Christ.
