    Just Because You Can Does NOT Mean You Should

High Quality Content

There is a lot of high quality content here, most of it with some light-touch humor. They’ve been at this game a long time, and it shows. As the world has evolved with new risks and new considerations, they are right there on it. I’ve even listened to the back catalog, and nearly all of it stands up well, too. I’ve subscribed to a few dozen different Security and Privacy podcasts and this is one the few I make a point to listen to regularly.
