NSRH9: ACLU MN Legislative Director Ben Feist
Sam sits down with ACLU of Minnesota Legislative Director Ben Feist. Feist has been lobbying for oversight, accountability and to protect our liberties for around five years. He’s been at the forefront of fights over regulations of newly disclosed surveillance technologies such as license plate readers (ALPRs), StingRay and KingFish cellphone snooping devices, and drones.
The conversation starts off covering the CellHawk revelations North Star Radio Hour brought forth and continues from there. The two talk about Feist’s impressions from the last legislative session, national politics, movements and much more.
