My absolute favorite podcast

Darknet Diaries is by far my favorite podcast. It takes on complex situations in a way that most people can follow along - both with and without an it-background.

When a new episode is released I jump to this as soon as I can, and love every second of it.

One of my favorite episodes must be The Beirut Bankjob.
