We discuss a few privacy-related stories that hit the wires this week about Apple and Amazon. Apple seems like they’re trying to do the right thing, but are they going about it the right way?

Finally, we explore Prasanna’s journey through CCPA, as he uses it to try to get one company to tell him where they got his private info.
