    @Tennessee

    How much online abuse are you willing to take before you decide to let your abuser have what they want? Unfortunately, this is a decision that many people have to ask themselves. If someone can threaten you physically, it bypasses whatever digital security you have in place.

    Thanks to https://twitter.com/jw for sharing this harrowing story with us.

Easy to digest

Best and easiest to digest tech podcast. So interesting and keeps you engaged. Thanks so much for what you do, Jack Rhysider and crew. Cheers

Dexter Fillmore ,

The best

My favorite podcast by far, and worthwhile even for those without high levels of technical skill or experience.

Lawyer920 ,

fascinating topics/subjects ruined...

... by an irritating host with an overly repetitive narrative style. Asking the same question three different times is boring podcasting, and really makes clear that you're trying to drive a narrative that your subject isn't buying into.
