Lately, Dan has had a very specific itch. Email tracking software has really been getting on Dan’s nerves. So much so that he even wrote a recent blog post about how much it’s upsetting him.
Enter Sonny Tulyaganov. Sonny was feeling some of the very same frustrations with email tracking software that Dan has been experiencing. But Sonny decided to do something about it. He developed a browser plugin called Ugly Email, which allows you to see who is tracking your email.
On this week’s show, you’ll hear the history of how Sonny developed this plugin, and startling revelations about just how much of the information in your inbox is at risk.

- How Sonny first found out about email tracking software. (4:56)
