For the 293rd episode of the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast, we are down to a two-man booth as both Dave and Jag are away on vacation. To kick things off, Ahmed and I take a look at a story that pulls the curtain back on one of the web’s most notorious websites – 4Chan. We were kind of shocked when we saw who was one of the benefactors and am pretty sure that you will be as well.


We then climb out of the cesspool before falling into a story on a scam targeting taxpayers. From there, in the third story we look at a positive case for AI – yes, you read that right, we are positive on AI for once on the podcast. In this story, a university student uses AI to help get her out of a ticket. 


The happy stories end there, as our next tale looks tragically at the use of airtags for vigilante justice in Texas. If you read the headline below, you know the story. To close things out, we talk about Elon Musk’s weird move of adding the Dodge Coin logo to Twitter, replacing the very familiar bird.
