Fuad and Vizla look back at the Weinergate saga, where Anthony Weiner, a former US congressman and one half of the power couple along with Huma Abedin, was repeatedly caught sending explicit pictures of himself to minors. Is it the loneliness from the constant travel required of a national politician? Is it the emasculation of seeing your wife’s career overshadowing yours? Or is it a mental illness as he claimed in court? Tune in for a discussion on why people sext as well as how technology is changing the nature of power and privacy.
