Project Sustainability

Each month, the show welcomes a new guest who will unpack a specific topic, spanning multiple episodes. Host Peggy Smedley will dive into her guest’s desire to provide alternatives that will empower each of us on what it means to have a healthy home. Simply all the innovations from energy, air, water, lighting, security, appliances, and more that impact our homes.

With a focus on technology—and how it works in the home—listeners will gain a deeper understanding of what’s coming next and what’s already possible today. Determined to give a glimpse into the future, Smedley ends every series with the same question: How can we do even more simply by managing our energy consumption to help make the world healthier, safer, and greener today and for future generations?

Peggy Smedley and Susan Landau, Bridge professor in cybersecurity and policy, Tufts University, discuss connecting a lot of things in our home and what we need to be aware of. She says you first need to think about why you are doing this, what is the benefit you are getting, and who has access to the information.

They also discuss:

  • When to use a VPN.
  • Whose responsibility home security is.
  • What damage can happen with a cyberattack in our home.
