[REDACTED] USER ,

outstanding weekly update

this is a great podcast! i wish there were more content on apple's podcasts with shannon. i do miss her with the hak5 podcasts...

Dimitri Se. ,

Video format is not good

I try to play this while driving, at work, and even at home with WiFi on. It always breaks up. There needs to be an audio version of this podcast because the video version stinks

cornrobie ,

Best security podcast

This is the best security podcast because you get the headlines and commentary without taking forever.
