Episode 38: Big Brother-ish or Nah? The Future of TSA Security.

We’re back!! Life happened last week, but Reyna Simone is back just in time to tell you about the future of security with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).  The agency plans to use biometrics—such as fingerprinting and facial recognition scanning to enhance security measures.  Reyna Simone discusses the program, provides tips for traveling with electronics and quips about whether the future of TSA security/government access to your biometric/DNA information is too much.

Parts of North Carolina and South Carolina are still reeling in the weeks after Hurricane Florence.  If you are interested in helping out those communities, here are some ways to do so:

World Central Kitchen:  this is one of my favorite charities.  They provide meals to those in need—and have a stellar record of helping in the aftermath of disasters (they’ve served 3.6 million meals in Puerto Rico since last year!)


American Red Cross:  The Red Cross is known for helping people and responding to disasters.  https://www.redcross.org/donate/hurricane-florence-donations.html/
