3. UK Parliament's Damian Collins
Damian Collins has social media regulation in his sights, and as chair of UK Parliament's DCMS select committee, he's got strong opinions on how to whip the tech companies into shape. Here he joins Matt Navarra and Martin SFP Bryant to explain why tech companies seem to particularly fear scrutiny from UK politicians, whether we need international rules to govern big tech, what he thinks about Netflix's The Great Hack (in which he appeared)... and just what is Mark Zuckerberg's deal, anyway?  It's a wide ranging and fascinating chat with a man leading the charge toward greater regulation of the apps we all use. And we talk over the week’s news and share the latest tests and tools you need to know about. Geekout with Matt Navarra is sponsored by Pinterest.
