NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden leaked details of massive government surveillance programs in 2013, igniting a raging debate over digital privacy and security. That debate came to a head this year, when Apple fought an FBI court order seeking to access the iPhone of alleged San Bernardino terrorist Syed Farook. Meanwhile, journalists and activists are under increasing attack from foreign agents.
To find out the government's real capabilities and ask whether any of us can truly protect our sensitive information, founder Shane Smith heads to Moscow to meet Snowden.
