  • True Crime Cyber Geeks is delicious and digestible!

    I love love love this show. Michele Bousquet has a talent for taking very obscure and weighty subjects and translating them into explanations that are not only comprehensible, but also entertaining. Short version: laugh while you learn. But don’t take my word for it—listen to an ep and see for yourself, and make your cyber world a safer place while you’re doing so!
