Excellent show but too long

Anyone who writes quality code in assembler is worthy of respect. And so too is Mr Gibson. I have learned a lot through this podcast from this guy. The part I don’t like is when he spends a lot of time reading excepts (especially the USA centric legislature). It’s quite boring and I find myself wishing I didn’t have to waste my valuable time listening to this. I like it when Steve explains things in his own words I don’t need someone reading other people’s work to me. Thanks Steve for your excellent work. I would appreciate shorter and more concise podcast episodes ... if possible please.

These guys know what they are talking about.

Even though the source of the articles are researched from out her parts of the security news industry. Steve and Leo explains expand and elaborate on a level that most can understand. They also discuss solutions and precautions. Well done boys.
