Sometimes paper is safer than the Internet. Find out why in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:21 Explanations: 3:18 Fast dialog: 16:55 Marcus: All right, let’s get started. These documents won’t sort themselves. Rebecca: I really don’t think sorting through documents is the best use of my time. Can’t the company find an intern to do this? Marcus: We have confidential information in these files and unless we want a security breach, only people who are authorized to see it are allowed to do this job. Rebecca: Lucky us. Marcus: Okay, we need to purge these files of outdated material. Let’s start by sorting them into two piles for either retention or destruction. Rebecca: And then what? Marcus: Then we have to further sort the destruction pile, either for disposal in the recycling bin or to be shredded. Rebecca: And who are the lucky people who get to do the shredding? Marcus: We get that honor, too. Rebecca: You’re kidding! I’m all for safeguarding confidential information, but couldn’t we just burn it all in a giant bonfire? Marcus: And who do you think would be responsible for doing that, and for extinguishing the wildfire we start? Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
