    S3 Ep65: Supply chain conniption, NetUSB hole, Honda flashback, FTC muscle

    S3 Ep62: The S in IoT stands for security (and much more)

5 Star Review

Love the show. Actually can be done in less than 30 seconds.

Informative and Fun

I’ve subscribed to many IT and security podcasts and find many too long and dry to keep me engaged. The Naked Security podcast content has always been on point and the hosts are always entertaining. It’s one of the few I listen to as soon as it’s published.

Good Security (and general) Podcast

This is a fun podcast to keep tabs on some interesting security news.

I do have a request though: I would love to hear much more from Doug and Kim.
I’m not trying to be mean, but Paul seems to sort of take over too much. I enjoy various facts and technical jargon, but I’ve found myself muttering ‘let them speak’ much too often.
