We talk to social engineering experts, security pros, cognitive scientists, and those practiced in the arts of deception (perhaps even a magician or two).

Great listen when sitting in traffic!

The lineup of speakers are extremely respected and come from different backgrounds. The whole crew does a really good job of delivering content!

Informative and funny

As a newish student in a center for excellence cyber program I find that this podcast, and the Cyberwire podcast, help introduce new ideas and reinforce learned material with real-world examples. Plus this one makes me laugh. I was walking my dog in the park when I listened to the "porpoises with flaming credit cards" catch of the day - people must've thought I was crazy, walking around laughing. I love the accents that you do when you read the examples, I love that you always explain terminology, I love your great interview questions - the only thing I don't love is that you're only on once a week!
