Smashing Security #084: No! My voice is not my password

All this and much much more is discussed in the latest edition of the award-winning “Smashing Security” podcast by cybersecurity veterans Graham Cluley and Carole Theriault, joined this week by John Hawes from AMTSO.

    RSS for nerds? Podcasts = Apple Podcasts …Look a lot like a fanboie here (elite for fanboy).

      Most of our downloads come from Apple Podcasts/iTunes, followed closely by PocketCasts . Our listeners are overwhelmingly iOS users (my guess is that's because Android doesn't ship with a default podcast app).

      Personally I like Overcast and PocketCasts, and think Apple Podcasts is horrendous. The good news is that you can listen via any podcast app using the RSS feed, although the uninitiated may be baffled as to what they're supposed to do with it.
