Smashing Security

“Smashing Security” is an award winning podcast which is in theory about infosec, but in reality it’s a very entertaining (and occasionally slightly rude) round-up of all sorts of computing and tangential non-computing news. Features lots of back-and-forth banter between hosts Graham Cluely, Carole Theriault and their special guest.
