In the fourth episode of Kill Switch, we deep dive into the technical side of internet shutdowns, and provide you with some tools to help circumvent government tactics that prevent people from getting online.

We hear from a digital security helpline expert about setting up private Virtual Private Networks; get an introduction to the world’s largest repository of network disruption data; find out what’s been going on in Venezuela; and learn more about the frighteningly sophisticated internet security of Iran. 

This episode features interviews with Maria Xynou from Open Observatory of Network Interference, Hassen Selmi from Access Now’s Digital Security Helpline, Andrés Azpúrua from Venezuela Inteligente and Venezuala Sin Filtro and Amir Rashidi.

Hosted by Felicia Anthonia. Produced by Access Now, the #KeepItOn coalition, and Volume. Funding support from Internews. Production assistance by internet teapot. Music by Oman Morí.
