Episode 71 of The Watchman Privacy Podcast – Tor Part II: Running a Tor Relay

Gabriel Custodiet gives the floor to Urban Hacker again to explain what a Tor relay is and how to run one. They cover why you should run a relay, why you shouldn’t run an exit relay, and why Bitcoiners in particular have an obligation to run a relay in their homes. Urban Hacker offers a lot of insider details, such as what to expect from your ISP, what equipment you need, how to protect your home router, and why a Tor bridge might be the best way to start.
