In this special episode of the podcast, we address 10 questions from our Stalker/Patrons! Including:

  1. Sarah in Stalker group: “You guys are always talking about technology addiction, sometimes I find myself genuinely worried about how much time I spend on my phone or computer. What scares me more is how anxious I feel when I'm not using it. Any tips for a struggling iPhone addict?”
  2. Heather in the Stalker group: “What are your thoughts, is this moral?” https://ia.meaww.com/read/technology/company-creates-suicide-machine-that-will-assist-patients-with-their-death/wp?utm_source=wp&utm_campaign=influencer&utm_medium=4697
  3. Cadence in the stalker group: "A debate that I currently run into as whether or not Boderline Personality Disorder is really a personality disorder or the result of complex trauma. A colleague of mine won't utilize the name BPD and instead refers to it as complex trauma. Just an idea!"
  4. The Psychology of Comedy requested by famous stalker John & also Cadence in the stalker group shared this article: https://themighty.com/2017/09/pete-davidson-borderline-personality-disorder-manipulation/?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=Mighty_MH_Page
  5. Kendra in the stalker group: "Forgive me if this has been discussed I'm a little behind. Has there been a episode on the effects of music on your mood: Personally work has been insanely stressful the last few weeks(had my first panic attack in roughly 5 years last week) and music has been helping calm me. So I'm wondering if that is universal." 
  6. Typical American lifestyle: Now vs. the 50's 
  7. Tracy in the stalker group: “I'm not sure if you guys have ever done a little bit of this in an episode, but have your ever thought of doing an episode on the psychology of forgiveness?  I saw this documentary a few years ago and followed her path, as I held grudges so badly.  It was just ruining my life.  I've become so much happier since then and find it so interesting." http://m.imdb.com/title/tt0489707/
  8. Online Personality tests like Myers Briggs

Last month- 1/3 of the U.S. population had their data stolen and this means YOU or someone you care about has more than likely been affected! In this episode of the podcast, psychotherapist, Michael Drane (@upcmd) is joined by Cyber-Security Engineer Ryan to breakdown the recent Equifax Data Breach that has already affected 143 million people. In this exclusive episode, Ryan is here, as a uniquely qualified cyber-security specialist and helps us all understand what we can do to protect ourselves. 

Ryan has been on the podcast a few times before and talked with us about this very issue! In the "How Companies Lose Your Data" Podcast, we learned (back in 2016) how easy it is for "Big Data" to gain access to your information and identity. LOL, it's like we predicted Equifax would happened or something ;) 

 

In the "What Hackers DO with YOUR Stolen Identity" Podcast, we learn the true motivations behind these criminals. Last year, Ryan and Michael were just giving their predictions. Now, it's 2017 and it's happening.

The time to act is NOW Stalkers! There are a few very simple things you can do to protect yourselves, so please take a few minutes now to do the things we outline in this podcast! Protect yourselves, my friends. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this one!
—Michael, Corey and Ryan
