Scholars James Rule and Kathryn Montgomery join Liane Hansen to mark the year's end with a conversation about privacy — how we define it, how we safeguard it and how new generations view it.

Rule is the author of Privacy in Peril and a scholar at the Center for the Study of Law and Society at University of California-Berkeley.

Kathryn Montgomery is a professor at American University's School of Communication and heads the Center's Youth, Media and Democracy project.
