#7 - The attack on Didi

32 mins | Jul 14, 2021

Today's episode from 15th July 2021. First today, we look at China's crackdown on ride-hailing firm Didi and ask whether Big Data is becoming the next battleground between the world’s superpowers. And later, with working from home becoming the norm, do we need a new law to ban out-of-hours emails? What is behind the Chinese government's national security probe into ride-hailing company Didi shortly after the company listed its U.S. IPO? The Bloomberg News Team explores how Xi Jinping is looking to control the masses of data held by the country’s tech giants. During the pandemic, many workers have felt more under siege than ever from emails that arrive at all hours. Elle Hunt examines whether the legal right to disconnect would help employees who are struggling with workplace boundaries. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
