If you like to listen to generalities and poor speculation, this may be the podcast to you. If you are looking for good security insights, pass on this one.
I liked the politics
Ban the guns
Was good until he started mixing it with politics
When will hosts of unrelated podcasts learn that mixing them with politics is not a good way to go? The reason many of us listen to your podcasts is so that we can get away from politics. Why is it not clear?
I had to shut his podcast off a few episodes back when he literally dedicated half of an episode to that horrific shooting in NZ. I get it that you guys were emotionally involved by the sobbing of your president lady, but why do you need to mix your emotions and political views with an unrelated security podcast?
So since then I have this aftertaste every time I try to listen to it again.
Additionally, this podcast (even politics aside) is only like 20 minutes long of actual information. The latest security news is very good. But then it is usually a paid promotion or a product placement. Although, I should applaud him for clearly labeling it as such (unlike what "Security Now" or Troy Hunt are doing.)
You guys are a disgrace and blatant traitors to the security world. What kind of psycho wants police to have access to everything of everyone?
Not just the best security podcast, the most security podcast
These guys have some good content. But bear in mind that they are second only to The CyberWire in their incessant shilling for CIA and GCHQ talking points.
They will ALWAYS defend law enforcement in their hunger for mandatory key escrow. They will never fail to attribute literally every single breach to Fancy Bear, IOCs be damned. They will give NSA, CIA, and GCHQ a pass no matter what they do. They make fun of cypherpunks constantly, and never pass up an opportunity to fellate any government agent or vendor of lawful intercep- er, I mean, “network security device” that they interview.
They want you to live in a government panopticon with strictly controlled speech that wages endless war, and unfortunately their opinions strongly color what would otherwise be a great security podcast.
Too chatty by host
I became turned off by the host talking too much and not letting his guests speak.
Great Way To Keep Up With The Goings On
Fun for engineers too!
Great podcast! I look forward to listening to it every week.
Great source of information
Curious attempt bunny
I've been listening for 3+ years. Great stuff. Thanks Pat, Adam, and folks.
Consistently Excellent InfoSec News + snark
Excellent News source for infosec - one of my top 3
I read the "manifesto" and it would seem you are not familiar with current scientific studies and facts. That's literally what he was talking about in it.
Excellent reporting and discussion
Patrick takes a tech savvy reporters scrutiny to the weeks infosec news. Along with kiwi-in-crime, Adam Boileau, it makes for a lively conversation in a laid back non-jargony fashion.
Hillary could not possibly loose
This podcast did not age well, came looking for insightful security commentary this sounded like a knock off Rachel Maddow
Unparalleled infosec podcast
This is the best information security podcast. It is essential listening. It has it all! It's educational, it's hilarious, and it even occasionally has the grugq!
Sharp, informative, fun
Incredibly informative with lots of expert guests. I love the news segment that starts every show because it provides great context and clarity.
Been listening religiously for 3 years.
I miss the music at the end of the interview but the new format of the show is balanced.
Among my favorite professional development podcasts
If you're in the technology field, this should be on your list.
If you’re in the technology field, this is a must listen podcast. Like it or not, security is a part of every technologist’s world, and if you’re not thinking about it, you should be. The format is great and Patrick does a nice job of both informing the listeners (weekly news headlines) and introducing them to new technologies and ideas with both the featured and sponsored interviews. The shows regular guests are always informative and entertaining, and I also enjoy the guests on the featured interviews. One of the things I like most about the sponsored interviews is that they are generally done by a technology person at the company instead of a marketing/sales person, which makes them considerably more informative to technology pros/enthusiasts like myself. Also worth mentioning: the podcast seems to be equalized/engineered well, so I don’t have to constantly fiddle with the volume!
I really like Patrick Gray's explanation of the latest cyber cybersecurity news and I also like the interviews. If you care about infosec, risky.biz is a must-listen podcast.
I am a college student majoring in a tech field, and this podcast along with Defensive Security has inspired me to go into the security field of technology. Patrick Grey and Adam Boileau and all of the guest speakers on this podcast are amazing and very informative!
Humor, depth and expertise all in one podcast.
From the host's humorous and interesting commentary of weekly security news to great interviews with information security experts, this podcast never fails to keep me interested. One of the best (if not THE best) Infosec podcasts out there.
Best source for infosec news
Insightful. Current. Engaging. Witty.
So much win.
This is one of the first infosec podcasts I started listening to and it was the greatest random decision I’ve ever made (excluding the purchase of crochet’ed boxers… hell yes). Pat and Adam kick things off by brining the listener into their inner circle of perspective and humor before handing it off to a series of incredibly informative interviews about a swath of exceedingly interesting concepts. Nary a Risky Business episode lasts more than a few hours before it’s gobbled up by my insatiable ears.
I thought I'd have enough security content between Security Now and PaulDotCom, but this is such a well done podcast that I've been chewing through all the old episodes. Give it a listen, it's good.
Great podcast, one the best out today!
I always look forward to listening to new episodes of this podcast, its informative and entertaining. Its great to hear about security and technology news from the other side of the world.
These guys rock it!
Patrick and Adam make a classic show with an entertaining discussion on sec. I love listening to these guys even i Im not totally savvy on it all and listeners are turned on to some great bands during the podcast !
Brilliant and wickedly funny
Full of good information and lulz - my favorite podcast to listen to on the way to work. It is salted with some Aussie vulgarity so probably not for the easily offended. Makes Security Now seem boring and out-dated in comparison.
A brilliant podcast
Middle aged American man
Informative and hilarious.
Staple in my sec podcast diet
This is just a great podcast. Funny informative and a great source for EPIC CYBERWAR APT INFORMATION SECURITY NEWS!!!! ;-P
Easily one of the best
This is easily one of the best security podcasts.
Overlooked gem from Down Under
In iTunes, if you enter "network security" as a search string, you'll see more than 70 podcasts on the topic. This is easily one of the top 5. Patrick Gray makes network security understandable but moves at a brisker pace than almost any security podcast, making this a perfect resource for busy sysadmins. Some more popular security podcasts are far less accurate technically, while some other show hosts are so busy impressing you with their coolness or touting their events and advertisers that you barely get any security info. Gray server it up straight, uncluttered, and unbiased. The Australian perspective explains why you haven't heard of this show. Give it a try! --Scott Pinzon, CISSP, host of Radio Free Security
