Best Security podcast available

Great combination of news, in depth interviews, and paid content.

Hilarious and informative

My favorite part is when Patrick and Adam discuss the security news.

I usually end up crying from laughter, sometimes just wincing. It’s great stuff and super informative.

Especially when the news portions run long, it’s like dessert.

Best Security Podcast

Wish there was more than one episode per week. More podcasts need to take a similar approach to sponsors (sponsor bit at the end and a separate episode for people to hawk their wares). Perfect blend of information, humour, and humility.
