John McAfee on Drugs, Guns & Being the First Cyber President


What’s a guy to do after making millions pioneering the computer security industry, becoming entangled in a Belizean murder case, escaping with his life and staying on the run for two years to avoid assassination? Run for President of the United States, of course. And to John McAfee this is no joke. He is intensely concerned about the damage hackers can do to the US government—and outraged that they don’t seem to grasp the gravity of it.

In this week’s episode you’ll learn what both organizations and individuals can do to protect themselves, why freedom has suffered in recent times and why McAfee believes he is more qualified than any other Presidential candidate.
