This week on The Milo Yiannopoulos Show, Milo sat down with John McAfee, the computer programmer and Libertarian Party presidential candidate.

Dubbed “America’s most entertaining cybersecurity expert” by TechCrunch, McAfee is an expert in attracting attention, often in hilarious or unusual ways. From hacking a Fox News host live on air to producing viral videos on how to uninstall his own famous anti-virus software, he has never shied away from the spotlight.

He also owns 10 guns, claims to have information that implicates the President of Belize in extra-judicial killings, and, according to the IB Times, regularly lives “off-grid,” avoiding the US power grid or any technology that could be used to track him.

As a candidate for the Libertarian Party nomination, he’s emphasised surveillance issues, in particular the vast quantities of personal data that are now stored online. Watch a clip of him discussing the issue with Milo below, in a sneak previous of the full-length podcast which airs on Friday.
