New Hampshire: Kilton Library’s Chuck McAndrew Discusses Tor and Online Anonymity on NPR’s All Thing Considered

Today’s All Things Considered interview with Chuck McAndrew, IT Manager at the Kilton Library in Lebanon, New Hampshire, is embedded below and also available here.

Here’s how NPR describes the segment:

NPR’s Robert Siegel interviews librarian Chuck McAndrew about using Tor — software that allows users to search the web without revealing their identity or location — in the New Hampshire library system.

You might remember the Kilton Library and Library Freedom Project made news last September when the library’s Tor relay was temporarily taken offline when a letter from the Dept. of Homeland Security was sent to New Hampshire state authorities. The relay returned to service after a vote by library trustees.
