💜 ⚙️💃🧀This podcast still makes my brain shoot off in 1000 different amazing directions.

Jen and Alvaro have a great energy. It’s fun to hear updates about their own projects. Where else are you gong to get Ghidra, cheese making and contemporary dance all in one place? Their interviews are also excellent. Thank you Jen and Alvaro!

Learn to hack and reverse engineer all the thingz

Over the years, this podcast has enlightened me to many crazy areas of technology. In particular, this has made the wireless and hardware hacking scenes much more approachable, as well as the art of reverse engineering. The hosts are really good at getting the guests to break down hard concepts then having further resources linked to dive deeper in the show notes.

Jen and Alvaro always have top notch guests! Everyone who comes on this show is an absolute wizard at what they do. To name a few, Michael Ossman (HackRF and Ubertooth), Samy Kamkar (MySpace worm and OpemSesame) and Joe Grand (hardware hacker) have all been on the show.

The hosts (Jen and Alvaro) are very jovial and knowledgeable, making every episode fun to listen to and a great learning experience. Keep up the good work (and maybe name the podcast). Hack the planet!

The fun engineering podcast

There are a bunch of similar electronics pods available, but this is the most fun of the bunch. There is a Silicon Valley element to the show, so I especially recommend it if you can visit the reverse engineering meetup that spawned the shoe.
