This episode of Cyber is an action packed double feature that feels like it's been pulled directly from a Cyberpunk novel. That's right, today is all about railway strikes and killer robots. It's hard to be a railway worker in America. The schedules are a nightmare, the kind of working conditions that can make someone sick. Just don't try to use your sick days. Facing a railway strike, Congress passed legislation to prevent it. All at the behest of the White House. We'll get into that. Then we'll talk about San Francisco. The City by the Bay has written the rules of killer robots. SF won't have the first police department that's killed someone with a drone, just the first with rules.With me today to talk about it is Motherboard Senior Writer Aaron Gordon. He's been following both stories.

Second, an update on our southern border and migrants from Mexico. Two new records to tell you about. I'll let you decide if either are good. Third, Joe Biden wants to buy more oil for our strategic emergency reserve, but Congress has already agreed to sell what we've got. Fourth, the Supreme Court weighed in on the student debt forgiveness plan. I'll share what they said. Finally, an update about Long COVID. Researchers this morning are suggesting that people suffering from it / have two things in common. Later, we close out the podcast with a listener question about whether or not I'm a good guy.

Railroad workers have expressed concerns over unpredictable and punishing schedules, a lack of sick leave and extended periods of on-call time. Four of the twelve unions involved in contract negotiations rejected a deal brokered in September and threatened to strike. At President Biden's urging, Congress has stepped in and is working to reach a labor agreement. On Wednesday, the U.S. House passed a bill that would bind companies and workers to accept the agreement reached in September.

Keith Creel calls on nearly a decade of experience working with the Canadian Pacific Railway to discuss his strategies for leadership and how he's turned the company around over five years in charge. Creel discusses all you need to know about the rail industry and how it affects our daily lives, what changes he sees coming in the future for the industry, how he thinks about leadership in times of change, and how Canadian Pacific secured a $27 billion deal to take over its rival, Kansas City Southern.   Creel became the President and CEO of Canadian Pacific in 2017, giving him executive control of one of the largest Class I rail systems in North America, with more than 13,000 miles of rail network stretching from the Atlantic to the Pacific. In 2021 he helped broker a deal that marked the first major merger in the railroad industry in the U.S. in two decades, and created the first freight rail network linking Canada, the U.S. and Mexico. -- Want even more?

It's part two of “What's the Deal with Dave” more interviews, more questions and more insightful commentary into what makes this young man tick and why his mission in life seems to be spreading happiness and joy throughout the human race. In other words, “Uncle” Dave would like to buy the world a Coke and furnish it with love, grow apple trees and honeybees and snow-white turtle doves. In this episode we hear from even more of Dave's guests at the Station Inn as dozens of Norfolk Southern trains continue to roll by just a few feet away as he tries to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony. So imagine yourself relaxing on the porch on a warm summer's evening with a cool refreshing Coca-Cola and enjoy!!
