With a million followers and several books on kitten care, Hannah Shaw is no stranger to interview requests and the technical issues to which they often give rise. But when a podcaster helped her navigate a “problem” in her Meta settings, Kitten Lady was hacked. Hear how her eye for deceit and nimble action saved the day.

Check out the episode to find out why keeping up-to-date with social media apps and settings can keep you from falling prey to the same scam, and why you should consider adopting a kitten (Travis did right after the recording). This week’s Tin Foil Swan asks the question: Are classroom apps privacy invaders or useful tools for educators?
