Thanks for sharing!

I find middle school students always like to discuss censorship and they find China example fascinating.

This is a great lesson!

Some of my favorite tech podcasts are

The Secret History of the Future,

Reply All,

Note to Self (it has stopped, but has some great story based episodes on privacy)

If Then

All of the above could be used in High School. They all mostly make connections between technology and society and or ethics.

 

For myself I listen to:

FT Tech

Cyber Wire

Developer's Tea
