– Google has injected itself into our day-to-day lives as no other company has.  Whether it’s how we control our homes, collaborate with friends and colleagues, search for information, communicate, get to our destinations, or organize our precious memories, Google is there to help us along, making difficult tasks easy and user friendly.  And best of all, most of Google’s services are free!  But, nothing is really free, is it?  What do we (in)voluntarily give up when we take advantage of Google services?  Does Google spy on us?  How does the US Intelligence Community fit into the equation?  All this and a whole lot more in this episode of the Supernatural Occurrence Studies Podcast!

– NOTE: Something very strange happened after the commercial break, right as we began talking about Google. We’re not sure if this was an attempted hack to prevent us from continuing with the episode. It’s never happened to us before, and we find it ironic considering the topic, some of which is critical of Google.  We welcome your thoughts!
