The Girls Out Loud Show has been created! Join us each week as hosts Maya Grinberg and Cristina Cordova discuss, debate, and discover the weeks most interesting tech, web, and social news stories.

In Episode 001, we get into the Facebook privacy issues of late, which seem so poorly timed for Facebook's reputation to withstand.
