Besides having excellent audio quality (which is lacking is so many podcasts) this one offers information that would otherwise be difficult to find and understand. While Steve's lingo is often over my head, Leo makes sure that everything is explained in a way that many average users (me) can understand. The fact that the shows cover subjects that are useful to all operating systems is a plus, especially being a Mac user myself.
Easy to Listen to Describes items with detail and understanding
Steve Gibson is obsessed with computer security and it is really reflected in this show. This is a good thing as he presents the infomation in english and you can be a beginner to advanced user and still understand the topic. Keep up the great work.
Excellent Coverage of complex subjects
Steve and Leo cover some very technical subjects with exactly the right amount of detail. If you are the person who your friends go to for computer advice this is a must hear show for you. If you are interested in improving your technical skills this is an excellent show. I wouldn't recomend this show to a novice computer user. If you know a firewall from a router from a switch, or can explain the difference between a worm and a virus you'll be just fine.
