LISTENER QUESTIONS:

I have seen heavy advertising for DNA testing from websites like 23andme, Ancestry.com and so on. Of course, they sound great but the data repercussions, to me at least, seems terrifying. Future health insurance refusal, genetics of your kids (or future kids) being known before you do, etc. And things we don’t even know about yet! Would you consider addressing this on your podcast?

You guys talk about using Linux but also iPhone, Can you backup your iPhone on Linux?

SHOW NOTES:

INTRO:

**NOTE: Our guest contacted us after the interview to disclose that Brave does NOT alter the way DNS is handled in Chromium/Brave. Therefore, it is my (MB) opinion that Google WOULD still get some web traffic information while using Brave.

BRAVE BROWSER:

https://brave.com/

OFFENSE & DEFENSE:

Offense: Communities Search Tool
Defense: Discussion

LISTENER QUESTIONS:

I have messed around with qubes before and like the idea but is it compatible with Macbooks? I am able to get Ubuntu natively.

Just wondering if you figured a way to set up a kill switch for iOS protonvpn. I’m using OpenVPN. I’ve been caught so many times without my vpn on!

LISTENER QUESTIONS:

Michael mentioned that he doesn’t use VOIP numbers for anything he can’t afford to lose, so that if they went away, he would be okay. Do you have any alternatives for things we can’t afford to lose?

I have concerns about purchasing items anonymously and then needing to execute the attached warrantee, can you weigh-in on this?

LISTENER QUESTIONS:

I live in California, and I would like to buy a home using a New Mexico LLC as you explained in an earlier podcast. I will never make any income with the LLC, do I have to register it with the IRS and FTB?

You guys mention New Mexico LLC all the time, but how are they any different than Delaware or Nevada? You can be private with them as well.
