Whether you are a seasoned privacy professional, a website owner trying to decipher privacy compliance requirements, or a person that wants to learn more about your privacy rights, podcasts can be a very informative source of entertainment. Privacy podcasts can cover a variety of interesting topics such as: 

  1. New privacy laws and their requirements; 
  2. Enforcement actions, lawsuits, and fines; 
  3. How privacy compliance requirements affect certain industries (e.g. advertising and marketing industries); 
  4. Privacy in historical contexts; and 
  5. Interesting books, articles, and research in the field.

While there are quite a lot of privacy and data protection podcasts out there, below is a list of just a few of our favorites (in no particular order): 

Privacy Lawls by Termageddon 

Weā€™re a bit biased on this one. Privacy Lawls is a podcast where our President, Donata Stroink-Skillrud, interviews well-known privacy professionals (and yes, it does include laws and lols). The podcast discusses commonly asked questions (e.g. what does it mean to share data?), the history of privacy, and frequently misunderstood privacy topics.
