Thank Zuck it's Friday #15 - Spies, regulation and beer

It's the end of the week, and that means it's time for 'Thank Zuck it's Friday': the tech news podcast from Computing.

This time the team - reunited once again - talk about subscription beer and driving lessons (although not together), and then discuss the ECHR's ruling against GCHQ, MEPs' anger at Ireland's data protection regulator, and the future of power generation, which may or may not arrive in time.

To hear more from the Computing team, listen to the most recent episode of The Spark, where we speak to the founders of some of the world's fastest-growing and most exciting companies about their journeys.
