Alibi is an app that constantly records the last hour of your life, in audio, video and location data so you can have your own recorded evidence.

Ryan Saleh is the co-founder of Alibi. He speaks to Nora about our changing sense of privacy and trust as we move more toward continually documenting our lives.

We also hear from Steven Penney, a law professor at the University of Alberta. He explains the legalities of recording citizens and police officers in Canada.
