Does Privacy Still Exist? What You Need to Know Guests: Leslie Francis, PhD, JD, professor of law and philosophy, University of Utah; John Francis, PhD, professor of political science, University of Utah; coauthors of "Privacy: What Everyone Needs to Know" Isn’t interesting how the urge to protect our privacy is with us so strongly at an early age? We hide our childhood diaries from prying eyes and post “Do Not Enter” signs on our bedroom doors. But do we ever really have privacy in this day when our credit card company and favorite stores hold more information about us than even our closest friends know and every move we make online is being tracked, quantified and sold? The premise of the new book, “Privacy: What Everyone Needs to Know” is that privacy still matters – and still exists – if you’re savvy about it. Related event: The University of Utah College of Law is hosting a free privacy lecture on Feb. 15. Information on attending or watching the livestream, here. For Global Refugees, the Crisis Continues Guests: James Bluemel, award-winning director of "Exodus: Our Journey to Europe" and "Exodus: The Journey Continues" on PBS Frontline; Hassan Akkad, Syrian refugee featured in "Exodus: Our Journey to Europe," researcher on "Exodus: The Journey Continues" The Frontline documentary “Exodus: Our Journey to Europe" included cell phone video taken by refugees to give us an intimate look at their efforts to reach safety. The film (watch online here) won a Peabody award, a BAFTA (the British equivalent of an Emmy) and an International Emmy Award. Now director James Bluemel is back with a sequel that follows-up with some of the refugees we met in the first film and introduces us to others. "Exodus: The Journey Continues," premieres Tuesday, January 23rd on on PBS Frontline.
