What SHOULD President Obama say tonight in his final State of the Union address? And what is he likely to say instead? Berin Szoka offers TechFreedom’s take.

He and Evan discuss encryption, the rise of tech policy in the presidential campaign, the good and bad news on surveillance reform, a coming clash with Europe over data flows, the first amendment, fourth amendment, and mass surveillance, making broadband deployment easier, the perils of regulating the Internet, and big data.

Along the way, Berin casually compares Donald Trump to Vladimir Putin.
