The Show regularly checks in with the Editorial Board of the Arizona Republic to talk about current issues facing the state and the region — featured in columns on the newspaper’s op-ed pages.

The recent cyberattack on the Colonial Pipeline resulted in long lines at gas stations in the eastern U.S. and even worries that a true shortage and much higher prices were inevitable.

The pipeline reopened last week, and most people simply went back to their regular schedules and routines. But should all of us — especially policymakers — see this as a call to action?

The Show spoke with Phil Boas of the Republic, who interviewed a corporate cybersecurity expert about what the nation’s focus should be.
