Episode 257 of the Transatlantic Cable kicks off with discussions about a concerning story of hacking airplanes and cargo ships – is it possible or just FUD?  From there the team discuss news about an office man in Japan (not much more is known about this mysterious gentleman) who went out for a drink after work and proceeded to lose a USB memory stick with data on over half a million city residents.  Talk about a hangover. 

From there, the team discuss a new age-verification method for Instagram involving selfies and concerns grow for Covid tracking apps that are pivoting away from tracking diseases to broader health related topics.
