Thank you for tuning in to our 150th episode! I started the Easy Prey Podcast with the goal of helping listeners learn to avoid being an easy target for scammers and fraudsters, both online and in the real world. Since the first episode on March 18, 2020, I’ve had the honor of interviewing some of the most influential people in their fields. We’ve talked about topics ranging from personal safety, self-defense, social engineering, and romance scams, to phishing, cybercrime, and everything in between. This episode is a slightly different format than normal. We’ve had some amazing guests on the show over the last 149 episodes. Today, I’m sharing highlights from our top 10 episodes!
When the internet began, trust was implied. But today, how can you know who or what to trust on the web? Today’s guest is Steve Gibson. Steve has participated in the PC industry since its inception. He authored InfoWorld’s top rated Tech Talk column for eight years and he produces the TWiT Network’s weekly Security Now podcast in its 17th year. He developed a working replacement for the username and password site known as QRL and is best known for his 35 year old SpinRite mass storage and data recovery and maintenance utility which he continues to develop.
