Alexa, Witness for the Defense

Alexa has been a silent and virtual witness to several cases of crimes being committed at home. As a result, police have been calling on Amazon for the audio recordings in hopes of finding irrefutable evidence against suspects.

I consider the possibilities on this episode of The Jim Stroud Podcast.

I debate the issue in this episode of “The Jim Stroud Podcast.”
