Surprisingly Free is a weekly podcast hosted by Jerry Brito. As the web site proclaims, it features "in-depth discussions with an eclectic mix of authors, academics, and entrepreneurs at the intersection of technology, policy, and economics."
In this episode, Joseph Hall, a postdoctoral researcher at the UC Berkeley School of Information and a visiting postdoctoral fellow at the Princeton Center for Information Technology Policy, discusses e-voting. As he explains, there is a bit of confusion about the subject; electronic and internet voting are not the same. Consequently, security concerns differ. He also talks about benefits and costs of different voting systems, limits to having meaningful recounts with digital voting systems, why internet voting can be a bad idea, and the future of voting.
