NULL, from Radiolab 🎧

I listen to an astonishing volume of podcasts. I wanted to share today's episode of Radiolab with the DEV Communityβ€”I think you'll appreciate it!

Let me set the stage for you, without spoiling any of the episode's twists and turns:

A security engineer in the US thought that putting "NULL" on his car's vanity license plate might prevent him from getting speeding tickets. He was wrong.

What follows is a dive into the digital (and systemic) challenges faced by people whose names present complications in online databases.

Give it a listen, I'd love to hear what you think! 🎧
