Always time for empanadas ,

One of the best security podcasts!

Love the content and Steve’s reviews.

Sm@rt speller ,

Some good information

I think this show does a great job of diving into current exploits and vulnerabilities. Unfortunately they spend way too much time bashing Microsoft that it gets rather annoying. Now I only listen after I’ve gone through all my other content first.

Joey J ,

extremely mundane one-man show

After listening to him drone on and on for 10 years, I’m not sure Steve Gibson knows how to host a podcast. He seems incapable of having a conversation withy anyone but himself, rarely interacting with Leo who remains silent through most of each show. There are never any guests. It’s just Gibson reading news releases endlessly. This podcast needs to return to its roots on advising consumers about best practices they can use and apply on their own devices.
