You won't believe the discussion on the latest Komando on Demand podcast!

Really...microchipped workers?

In the latest episode, Kim tries to find out why some employees are getting microchip implants. Is it for convenience or security?

Now you might be thinking this sounds like something right out of George Orwell's dystopian novel, "1984." But believe it or not, some employees are voluntarily, even enthusiastically, taking their employers up on the offer to implant tiny computer chips into their bodies.

Why would companies want to do something like this? Seems a little invasive with potential health risks, right?

In this Komando on Demand podcast, Kim takes a deep dive into this potentially-disturbing new idea, and she has all the information you need to understand this technology. You'll even get a heads-up on how to respond if your employer asks you, "Hey, how about we inject you with a microchip?"

Kim discusses RFID technology with Mark Roberti, founder and editor of RFID Journal. He's an expert in this field and can give us an idea of what it is, how it works, and how people are using it in the real world.

For example, if workers get the microchip implanted, they no longer need an ID badge. You could just hold the chip up to the scanner at the office to gain access.

Later in the podcast, Kim speaks with Co-Founder and President of Three Square Market and Three Square Chip Companies Patrick McMullan. He made headlines last year when he announced that he would cover the cost of implanting RFID chips in his employees.

In this podcast you'll find out how the idea came about and if McMullan actually has a chip implanted himself. Listen to the podcast to learn the answer.
