This week on Interchange, host Joe Crawford speaks with Indiana University Law Professor Fred Cate, an expert on privacy and “cybersecurity”. Cate talks about government surveillance on the local, state and national levels – from the spying apparatus at the National Security Agency, to cell phone intercepts by the Indiana State Police, to new surveillance cameras in downtown Bloomington. Cate talks about how our understanding of privacy has changed since the adoption of the Fourth Amendment, which was intended to protect Americans from unlawful search and seizure, in 1792.
