Far be it for me to close out one of the more surreal years of my life on a normal note, so I went on the WP Tavern podcast on 20 December to discuss GDPR, its impact on the WordPress ecosystem, and the transatlantic divergence in approaches to privacy which could create a transatlantic divergence in the ecosystem if not handled properly.
Many thanks to Sarah for arranging the interview before maternity leave, to Jeff and JJJ for the great questions, and to Simon for holding my beer.
