(My interview starts at 7:30 into the show.)

I recently gave an interview to the Complete Privacy and Security Podcast on the topic of financial privacy. I think it was a really good interview.

This interview was originally published on December 8, 2017 here: https://operational-security.com/cps-podcast-e058-financial-privacy-security/

Today, I'd like to interrupt the personal finance content with a show on podcasting. After recording over 500 episodes of Radical Personal Finance, I feel like I have some valuable lessons to share with other podcasters and with my listeners who are considering starting a podcast.

Enjoy,

Joshua

I really hate it when I see people bullied. And I especially hate to see debtors bullied by unethical debt collectors.

In today's show I share with you some tools, tactics, and techniques and knowledge to help you stand up for yourself in the face of an onslaught of bill collectors.

I hope these help you.

And, if you don't need this type of help, I hope these ideas help you to help someone else who does.
