The Best

This is my favourite out of the many security podcasts I subscribe to. You need some time to acclimatise to Steve’s presentation style (nothing bad, just different), but he is first-rate at explaining complex security issues in a way that less knowledgable people like me can understand. I love there being enough time available to explore subjects in detail and don’t begrudge the times I have to split listening across more than one session because of time constraints.

Adverts don’t bug me because they are what pay for the podcasts, and Leo is an old hand at taking a sponsor script and delivering it in a personalised way - you only have to hear the same script being delivered in a flat uninteresting drone by other podcasters to realise how much skill goes into the TWiT ones, by all their presenters.

Awful

Gibson is a self-publicist who knows little about security although he thinks he does - and this podcast highlights that.

Amazing
