How hackable is your car? Years ago, that question did not need asking. But times have changed. Two hackers featured in Wired magazine this week showed how they were able to remotely take control of a Jeep Cherokee that was driving down the highway.

Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson speaks with Alicia Boler-Davis, who leads of Chevrolet’s technology arm, for a look at hacking, safety and the future of cars.
