On this episode of the CyberBites Podcast, I had the pleasure of speaking with James Czerniawski of the Libertas Institute. The Libertas Institute is based in Lehi, UT and is a 501(c)3 who's mission "is to change hearts, minds, and laws to build a freer society by creating and implementing innovative policy reforms and exceptional educational resources." James is a Policy Analyst specializing on Technology and Innovation. The conversation starts out by framing the challenges and problems we as individuals and our government's face as it relates to technology, privacy and security. From there James talks about the Privacy Proposal that the Libertas Institute is working to get passed in the Utah State Legislature. This was a really fun conversation and super thankful for James taking time out of his week to chat. I want to thank Lindsay Marie for making the introduction and helping to set this conversation up.
James was born in New Jersey and raised in New York. Prior to joining Libertas, he was a Program Coordinator for the American Institute for Economic Research. He earned his master’s degree in economics from George Mason University where he was a Mercatus MA Fellow. He graduated from the State University of New York – Purchase with a bachelor’s in economics and American history. He is a travel enthusiast, a professional gamer, a cellist, an actor, a book worm, and a strong supporter for the ideas of liberty.

As a special note: this was the first time recording on a Rodecaster Pro. Man did this thing surpass my expectations. The sound is great, the ability to control and adjust things during the recording as fantastic, and you have to love the built in sound board.
