On Sunday, Radio Motherboard got the chance to record its first ever LIVE EPISODE at the work x work ON AIR festival at Brooklyn's Wythe Hotel. The crew discussed what it means to be vigilant in Trump's America and explained how Motherboard and its readers can defend the future from an administration that seems hellbent on bringing back the past. Also, a helpful audience member explains why you should always use encrypted chat with your drug dealers and our Editor-in-Chief Derek Mead tells us about the time he almost got arrested traveling to Thailand to interview an alleged dark web drug dealer.


A special thanks to everyone who came to the recording, the Wythe Hotel, and work x work On Air, a pop up live streaming radio lounge that explored creativity and storytelling. Check out more at All photos were taken by Alexa Hoyer.
