Attention online listeners:

  • **PLEASE NOTE: Allan's WSJS weekday show (Mon-Fri 3-6 PM) and the weekend syndicated show (Rock Talk) are two separate and very different shows. Both shows can now be heard on WSJS.COM. For now, the Sunday show also airs on WSJS 3-6 PM (ET).
     
  • Other radio Stations air the weekend show (ROCK TALK) at different times throughout the weekend. To make things easier for our WEEKEND STREAMING LISTENERS, we now stream continuously from 6pm Sunday to 10am Monday (ET) on USTREAM and host recent archives of the show there.
     
  • Another great way to hear the show is with the free TuneIn App for your tablet or Smartphone. Just go to your favorite App Store and download. For a couple of dollars you can get the Pro version that allows you to record the show. Very cool.
     
  • You can also find older podcasts of theAllan Handelman Show from over seven years of daily afternoon shows (4p-7p) on FM Talk WZTK. Plus this is where to hear the "Sunday Night" shows from most of the last 7 years up till March 2012 (Rock Talk with Allan Handelman) Subscribe via RSS
     
  • We hope this makes things a little more convenient than just offering two different airing times.

Among the guests and topics on this week's show:

  • The Amazing Kreskin has, for some six decades, dramatized the unique facets of the human mind…his own. His very name has become an integral part of pop culture throughout the world, invoked in comedy clubs, comic strips, print stories, and TV shows from sitcoms on through the national media. Through the decades, audiences of all ages have been drawn to this legendary figure. How many other celebrities can boast their own television series, their own board game, at this present time some nineteen books, and hundreds of appearances on almost every talk/variety show to be had.


  • T.Rob is an independent security consultant specializing in Internet of Things, identity, privacy and enterprise messaging. This week he talks with Allan about "malvertising" - the ad-tech that tracks you on the Internet, de-anonymizes you, and correlates all that data to your offline activities such as your retail purchases, perscriptions, reading habits, daily schedule, and who you hang out with. Though we are told this is all done to make ads more relevant, surveillance adtech is now used by cybercriminals to steal your money or identity and by repressive governments to suppress dissidents. Hostile adtech customers are so lucrative that the adtech companies are now marketing directly to these audiences. This is all based on recent reporting from reliable media outlets and extensive links to sources are provided.


  • Steve Weisman is a lawyer, a college professor at Bentley University and one of the country's leading experts on scams and identity theft. His book, "The Truth About Avoiding Scams" is one of the most important books ever written about scams. It was named by Smart Money Magazine as one of the ten best money books of 2008 and has been cited throughout the media. His latest book is "Identity Theft Alert." Steve also writes a column on scams for USA Today. Steve has been featured and quoted about scams throughout the media and he has received a Certificate of Merit from the American Bar Association for excellence in legal journalism. www.scamicide.com


  • Frank Warren earned his reputation as "the most trusted stranger in America" a decade ago when he started the POSTSECRET project, inviting people to anonymously share their deepest secrets on postcards. What began as a community art project rapidly captured popular imagination and evolved into a worldwide obsession!! Since 2004, Warren has received over A MILLION secrets from confessors across the globe, and with more than 600 MILLION hits to the award-winning PostSecret blog, and 5 huge bestsellers later, the PostSecret phenomenon is bigger than ever!!


Click to view on Amazon.comWith a showman's flair, a comedian's wit, and the capacities of a bona fide Mentalist or thought reader, The Amazing Kreskin has, for some six decades, dramatized the unique facets of the human mind…his own. His very name has become an integral part of pop culture throughout the world, invoked in comedy clubs, comic strips, print stories, and TV shows from sitcoms on through the national media.

Through the decades, audiences of all ages have been drawn to this legendary figure. How many other celebrities can boast their own television series, their own board game, at this present time some nineteen books, their own theme song – in this case arranged by the renowned musician Skitch Henderson at Carnegie Hall – and hundreds of appearances on almost every talk/variety show to be had. His performances have been seen all over the world, having flown over 3 million miles in doing so.

Kreskin has received international recognition for extraordinary predictions often dealing with world affairs. Regarding the U.S. Presidential Election of 2012, Kreskin logged the results in a written statement almost a year and a half earlier secured at NBC at The Jimmy Fallon Show with anther copy locked on display at the legendary Patsy's Restaurant in NYC as well as placed in the hands of two other sources. The copy of the prediction was opened the day after the election and proved to be accurate.

Actor/Producer Tom Hanks released in 2009 the feature film, The Great Buck Howard, starring Tom Hanks and John Malkovich. It is announced at the end of the movie that the inspiration for the key character of the screenplay is The Amazing Kreskin, the character played by John Malkovich.

Since the release of The Great Buck Howard, and the increased attention given Kreskin's world-famous "check-test", Kreskin now offers the sum of ONE MILLION DOLLARS ($1,000,000.00) to anyone who can prove that he employs paid secret assistants or use secret hidden electronic devices to aid in the accomplishment of his mental abilities. This challenge and assurance of integrity will be valid throughout the continuance of his professional career.

In the 2010 movie, Dinner for Schmucks, the character played by Zach Galifianakis has as his hero and influence The Amazing Kreskin, which further exemplifies the wide scope of exposure and attention which Kreskin has had.

In 2013, three days before the Super Bowl, Kreskin predicted on FOX television the results naming the winning team The Baltimore Ravens as well as the winning score... 34

In the same year, Kreskin's new book arrived Conversations with Kreskin. One of the unique highlights is the color center section done by the highly gifted Joe St Pierre the young cartoonist who has graphically drawn many of the comic books read today. The first key incident in his life captured in the cartoon pages that will surely become a collector's item.

The return of The Amazing World of Kreskin television series can now be viewed on the website Hulu.com.

Click to view on Amazon.comWorried about the NSA? T.Rob says the surveillance adtech companies are worse. Both capture data about everyone, but the NSA is selective about who they use it on. The adtech people use it on everyone. What is worse is that the surveillance adtech has become so good at evading user-side security, anti-virus, and ad blockers that it has become the tool of choice for cybercriminals to install malware to PCs, phones, tablets and other devices. This isn't limited to the seedier side of the Internet, either. Recent news reports have revealed that malicious advertising - malvertising - was delivered undetected to high profile web sites such as Amazon and Yahoo! for two years without detection.

In the post-Snowden era, people are taking more notice of creepy surveillance tech used against them and they aren't happy about it. Corporations and governments know this but rather than respond by taking steps to restore our privacy, they are moving as fast as possible to enact laws and invent new technology to strip more of it away before popular opposition gains sufficient strength to stop them. Read more at T.Rob's blog post: Online advertising is the new digital cancer which contains links to sources documenting the technologies and events he describes on the show.

T.Rob has spent nearly 30 years in Information Technology, the last 20 of which have been focused on security. He worked at Bank of Americqa for many years before moving to IBM where he was a consultant and a product manager. Now as an independent consultant he specializes in IBM's WebSphere Messaging products, Internet of Things, privacy, and identity and works for clients around the world. T.Rob was the project sponsor and lead author of the book Secure Messaging Scenarios With WebSphere MQ and he frequently presents security and privacy sessions at conferences in the US and Europe.

T.Rob blogs about Identity, Privacy and Security on his company's web site IoPT Consulting. In addition to his security work, T.Rob blogs about life with Asperger's Syndrome at Ask An Aspie and life in general at The Odd Is Silent. You can also follow him on Twitter as @tdotrob. Look him up at the next Internet Identity Workshop in April or Capitalware's MQ Tech Conference in September where he will be presenting sessions on certificate management and MQ V8.0 security.
