Great podcast

This podcast does a good job balancing covering lots of IT security topics, getting lost in jargon, and being entertaining.

I’ve listened to a few similar podcasts and this isn’t a deep dive into the technical details but if I wanted that I’d probably read it. A deal dive would probably take a lot more time before they could release content.

The little podcast that -won't

It doesn't seem to be finding its approach. Are they reporters or entertainment? A new reporter sounds as if they were woken up from a nap. During the Oct 4 podcast at 6:20 this person is reporting facts about "rideshare" and a drop in compensation paid. This person can't mentally calculate the percentage of change and the host rushes to say "Journalists not mathmeticians" Giggles! Um, like, maybe there's like, an app? On your phone? Or I dunno?
I'm completely in favor of new and diverse voices but this production refuses to be great.

Such Arrogant, anti-American Bias

The hosts are insufferable. Typical for this stoner publication, they’re discussing topics far above their area of expertise and trying to sound like objective experts. Their take in every case: “U.S. IS BAD! THE CRIMINAL WHO IS TOTALLY COOL SHOULD HAVE BEEN LET OFF THE HOOK!”
