Bingable stories about hackers, defenders, threats, malware, botnets, breaches, and privacy.

I've been super into this show since I discovered it a couple weeks ago.

Not sure it merits episode-by-episode posts exactly, but overall just loving Rhysider's writing and credulous delivery and the alarming stories he shares. The most recent episode, 3 Alarm Lamp Scooter, was a little different in that it focused mostly on one person's screwy thought processes that led to a tragic ending, rather than the technical issues of what he did, but even the highly technically focused episodes really grab you on a human level, even as some are just kind of a rundown of cascading system failures after a well placed hack of one kind or another.

Even though there is lots of technical terminology and I know nothing about computers, I follow along fine. He makes everything understandable to lay people.

Finally, Rhysider has a great radio voice! Love the show and looking forward to more.

I've been listening on and off for the last few months. I was initially put off by Rhysider's over-the-top tabloid style but if you can get passed that then there is a huge amount of solid reporting that makes quite technical topics approachable.
