YOU have been HACKED (How to Save Yourself)
Last month- 1/3 of the U.S. population had their data stolen and this means YOU or someone you care about has more than likely been affected! In this episode of the podcast, psychotherapist, Michael Drane (@upcmd) is joined by Cyber-Security Engineer Ryan to breakdown the recent Equifax Data Breach that has already affected 143 million people. In this exclusive episode, Ryan is here, as a uniquely qualified cyber-security specialist and helps us all understand what we can do to protect ourselves.  Ryan has been on the podcast a few times before and talked with us about this very issue! In the "How Companies Lose Your Data" Podcast, we learned (back in 2016) how easy it is for "Big Data" to gain access to your information and identity. LOL, it's like we predicted Equifax would happened or something ;)    In the "What Hackers DO with YOUR Stolen Identity" Podcast, we learn the true motivations behind these criminals. Last year, Ryan and Michael were just giving their predictions. Now, it's 2017 and it's happening. The time to act is NOW Stalkers! There are a few very simple things you can do to protect yourselves, so please take a few minutes now to do the things we outline in this podcast! Protect yourselves, my friends. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this one! —Michael, Corey and Ryan

Generation Gaps: Truths & Stereotypes of Millenials & Gen X'ers
[UNPLUGGED FORMAT] Unpopular Culture is thrilled to introduce the much-anticipated Generation Breakdown episode, with Licensed Psychotherapist, Michael Drane, Graphic Designer, Corey Stewart, Combat Photographer, Andrew Powers and Licensed Social Worker, Justin Krause. In this exclusive 4-person panel, we dive into a breakdown of generations dating back before World War II, including: Baby Boomers, Boomers 2, Gen-X, Gen-Y (Millenials) and even as recent as Gen-Z. We collectively breakdown the unprecedented impact that technology has had on the three most recent generations, comparing very different experiences of gameboys and iPads to 8-tracks and records, modern-day navigation versus paper maps, etc. Which generation has the most social skills? Jamie Gutfreund, who was on Rob Has a Podcast to talk about Survivors vs. Millenials, sparked discussion among many, including Unpopular Culture Podcast listeners, to write in and ask about the popular reality tv show. What are some common stereotypes about your generation, and are they true? Or is sociology simply based on cultural stereotypes? For a full list of the generations, visit upcpodcast.com Thanks, everybody!

14: TRUMPLAND — An Alternate Ending Podcast
It's the year 2040 and Trump is still President. In their final Unpopular Culture Episode ever, Michael and Corey talk about our fearless and wonderful dictator, Donald Trump— Honoring his righteous name and contributions to our country over the last decade as ruler of our once free nation. Though the looming threat of a nearby nook stands to shake them, the UPC team rallies together to celebrate the life of this wonderful podcast, and see it through to the end. After what UPC is calling the "Censorship Crusade of 2023" they've unfortunately had to shut the show down as they earned too many demerits, and are unfortunately in life-long personal debt to the Trump Empire. These are the reasons things are coming to a close, but not before one last hoorah! In the midst of it all, Michael and Corey look back at an episode they did in November of 2016 right before Donald Trump was elected into office, to see the difference in the the politics of the United States and the UPC moderators themselves. Thanks for tuning in- from all of us here at UPC, we hope you've enjoyed the show. ► We are not bystanders in today's culture, and we're willing to bet: Neither are you.
