In Episode 30, we are recording live from Def Con 26 in Las Vegas, the world's largest and oldest hacker conference, to talk with experts on elections, hacking, and privacy. First up, we talk with Montana State Representative Daniel Zolnikov from District 45. He ran for office at 25 years of age, was sworn into office at 26 and is chair of the powerful Energy and Technology Committee at 31 years of age. We discuss how this conservative gets high praise from the ALCU, what he's done to protect the freedom of the press, and his slate of bills protecting Montanans' privacy. And we also talk about what he faced as a young candidate running for office and his advice for other young candidates who want to run.
