I think this is one of the best episodes yet. It wasn't as technical as most episodes with hacking and whatnot. It does however have a unique story of everyone's dream of beating the normal capitalistic path. I really enjoyed the guest. keep up the good work Jack. I've listened to every single episode.

It’s funny to listen to the statement who is responsible for the attack, without a single confirmation of the facts.

Good podcast when it comes to learn about hacking a darknet stuff but when it comes to fact checking it is definitely one-sided on some of the podcast that I listened. For example when you talk about Israel or India you only listen to their side of issue but portray the other nation as evil, and that's definitely not right thing to do.

they do it on Google reviews too. I was looking into possibly buying a car from an auction place a couple hundred miles away and the reviews were mixed. most said it was a great place, but there were so many negative talking about how they ripped you off in such detail that I didn't buy one. however, the positive reviews all seemed very similar and I did wonder. there was a Ted talk named wiretapping the FBI (maybe CIA ) can be fun. this guy mentioned how hackers have destroyed businesses through Google reviews and I'm sure it can go both ways.
