The Federal Communications Commission has been fighting robocalls for years, but it hasn’t made much headway. Now it has a new plan to save your phone from the seemingly endless plague of spammy phone calls interrupting your podcast listening.
If you have, well, a phone number, you’ve probably received a robocall before. It was likely one of those annoying calls from an unknown number featuring a computer voice badgering you about some stupid service you supposedly need to buy. If you’ve been noticing more and more of these correspondences, you’re not alone.
