This Is Rad!

This week Kyle, Matthew and Producer Natalie welcome return guest Ron Babcock to nerd out about computer security. Ron discusses the importance of having a password manager, VPNs, and backing up your stuff (and porn) on both an external hard drive and somewhere off-site. Ron and Matt talk about the pros and cons of converting from Mac to PC. The gang also gabs about the trade-off between convenience and privacy, cleaning up your memory (and the satisfaction of "zap" noises), and everyone gives Natalie a hard time because her desktop is a cluttered wasteland but she likes it that way and everyone can go screw themselves THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
