Episode 200 – James Morrison – Cyber Crime / audio

cyber crime

James Morrison with the FBI Houston Division joins host Craig Price to discuss cyber crime. As a computer scientist, James has had to deal with many complex problems and solve many issues but nothing as mind boggling as Comicpalooza and Craig.  The two bravely sit down in the Houston heat and humidity to discuss ransomware, the importance of backing files up, why criminals are more interested in your medical records than files on your hard drive and what you can do to prevent problems in the future. It is all part of Comicpalooza’s Science-Fiction/Science-Faction educational track which happened in Houston June 17th through June 19th.  It was an amazing event and Craig even gives a quick rundown of the weekend where he had a surprise hosting assignment with actress Tara Reid! It’s a great way to celebrate 200 episodes.

Reality Check was a proud member of the 2016 Comicpalooza Podcast Partnership Program which arranged this interview and a few more to come.

Episode 199 – Phil Gerbyshak – Website Effectiveness / audio

website effectiveness

Phil Gerbyshak (@PhilGerb on twitter) returns to discuss website effectiveness with host Craig Price. We all have websites. Some spend thousands of dollars to have the latest and greatest sites with all the bells and whistles. And yet, they wonder why no one picks up the phone or emails them to make a sale. It might be because, while your site may look amazing, it doesn’t really say anything or show off your talents, programs or expertise. Phil has teamed up with past guest Eliz Greene to create a training program called  Lookers2Bookers.com which helps businesses assess and develop better websites that close business and generates sales. Phil and Craig talk simple mistakes most websites make (contact info anyone??), the differences between lead pages and home pages, why keywords are important to the reader and how to generate traffic to the beautiful temple you have created online.

You can find more about their program at Lookers2Bookers.com and look4book (see what I did there?) later this month.
