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. Check out Ron's new album "This Guy" at This episode is sponsored by Loot Crate. Give yourself a geeky gift this month!
