Timely, thanks

chriseldred ,

Fun security podcast that doesn’t get too technical.

This is a very good show about basic Mac/iOS security. The guests are good or sometimes the host is on their own. The show is good for everyone. It doesn’t get too technical. Keep up the good work!

Safety Always ,

What is needed!

This is needed badly considering so many people from all over are now attempting and sometimes succeeding in hacking Mac"s.
