A great view into a seldom seen world
First off the production value is really great on this podcast. The background music really draws attention to the episodes without being overpowering. Jack has a subtle and yet cognet voice that draws you in to the story, and in some ways reminds me of Ira Glass. The series provides a good balance between technical details and piecing together the big picture of what happened in the story. I would recommend it if you want to expose people into the infosec world through through some interesting stories.
A must to listen too
Stories are great and the production quality is top notch. If you love listening to hacking stories you’ll love this podcast.
You can't miss this.
I'm a HUGE fan of crime/hacker YouTube shows and Mr. Robot... this podcast is my new favorite addiction! The quality of the sound and editing is top notch - 10 out of 5 stars. Can I get a new episode every day!?! Brilliance, Jack.
