That's great and all, but just like the Gorilla Glass 5 claiming to be able to survive a hip level drop, I seriously doubt it. Just put a screen protector on it and call it good. I have a Samsung S8+ that was Gorilla Glass 5 and it still scratch and shattered on the corner. I've been using a TPU screen protector on my phones since then, so problems so far. When the screen protector gets too damaged or starts peeling I just replace it.

I listen to the Unmade Podcast. It started as a podcast about podcast ideas that will never be made into an actual podcast. But now it has branched into other stuff like travel and souvenir spoon collection.

As for more tech related podcast, Cortex is pretty good if you're into Apple product and related stuff (iOS apps etc).

For getting around geo blocking or downloading torrents, any of the big name VPN should be fine (Express, Nord, PIA). If you need VPN to use in a specific country, maybe ask around the expat sub or forums for that country. But truly anonymous VPN probably don't exist, maybe rent a server somewhere to setup Shadowsock, pay with crypto, then logon to it from public wifi? I don't know if that's secure enough, never really needed that level of anonymity.
