Just for starters, if you haven’t been following the whole brouhaha between Apple and the FBI, this podcast isn’t going to make the most sense. Glenn and Susie are joined by security expert and Macworld contributor Rich Mogull, and they all have strong feelings that tend toward the Dark Side.

Our FAQ has a pretty good overview of the situation as it stands today, and will be updated as new events unfold. Rich wrote a stunner of a piece on how this could eviscerate civil liberties as we know them, and Glenn touched on the international implications as well. More links are in the show notes below, and obviously we’ll be keeping an eye on this story as it develops.
