  • Love the podcast as a supplement to my cord cutting research.
    I was a little surprised you failed to mention how using a VPN often blocks access to Netflix and Amazon Video. I know this is the case for IPVanish. I feel people would benefit from this info. Obviously, you can still access these services by disconnecting the VPN when using them, but it rules out the option of using a dd-wrt router to provide whole house VPN protection to all connected devices. I found this out the hard way

    • Yeah, it slipped my mind. I have the VPN set up on my phone and laptop, but my streaming isn't. I'll mention it next time we record. Thanks for listening!.

  • I was on a cruise and fell behind. Just catching up now.

    I've been using a VPN on all my devices for about two years. I learned several things from your podcast. Thanks. I'll be reviewing my current provider and my own practices.

    You could have simplified VPN features by categorizing them on a scale of 1-3 Dennis tin foil hats. A coffee shop customer would select the 1 Dennis tin foil hat features. A dissident or reporter in Iran or China might be better choosing all the 1 Dennis tin foil hat features plus the 2 hat and 3 hat features.

    Oddly, I found that several cruise line sites block VPN users. I had to turn it off several times while doing my research.
