Modern Technology Watches – Episode 213 – Hackers (1995)

Hack the planet! For the second-season finale of Modern Technology Watches Rob finally shows Gila 1995’s Hackers, a film with a firmly argued-about place in the history of the real-life hacker community as well as a firewall-protected place in Rob’s hacker head.

Will the movie win Gila’s heart through cyberspace hijinks, or will she send it to the pool on the roof? Listen along as we cap off a fun second season, and look forward to the next!
