Can elections be "rigged?" Leo Laporte and Megan Morrone talk with the president of VertifiedVoting.org about the technology behind elections and the security of our votes. Lionfish are an invasive species taking over reefs all over the world. The folks at RISE (Robots in Service of the Environment) are building a robot to shock and trap these fish for food. Megan takes us to Pepcom's Holiday Spectacular with some new tech gadgets for the holidays. We scared the pants off of our staff with a scary Sony PlayStation VR game "Here They Lie".
- Both Pamela Smith, the President of VerifiedVoting.org and David Dill, Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University and Founder of VerifiedVoting.org talk to us about the vulnerability of voting machines and what should voters know.
