#97: Security Now (2014) [Part B]  

Part B of This Year's best-of for the 2014 year of Security Now.

A whirlwind guide through the world of internet and computer security, Security Now is a rare beast: a tech-centered show that appeals to and can be enjoyed both by computer enthusiasts and strict pedestrian laymen. Hosted by Steve Gibson, the man who coined the term spyware and created the first anti-spyware program, creator of Spinrite and ShieldsUP, and veteran broadcaster Leo Laporte, the show addresses all kinds of security issues, both breaking news and long-standing problems, concerns, or solutions. Always informative and entertaining, it is impossible to leave Security Now without knowing much, much more about the internet than when you came in. (Description adapted from the show's website.)

#95: Giant Bombcast (2014) [Part A]  

Part A of This Year's best-of for the 2014 year of the Giant Bombcast.

What is the Giant Bombcast? Humans with knowledge may stand before us, issuing us a response as plain as their faces: "Why, person with question, it is a podcast about video games." But is it really? A man fries egg shells under the belief he is cooking egg 'whites.' A Russian shortwave station blares in the background. A corporate face outlines the parameters for defining "the most extreme." Inquiries are raised regarding drinking water from a pool that has human excrement in it. Tears are almost shed over the current absence of Syphon Filter. Australians use emails as a proxy for fighting a civil war. Jeff has decided he'd like to see Lucy. What is the most disappointing game? What does one do if their father is named Dwayne Johnson? Should we respect Super Mario Sunshine? These questions and non-questions are raised here in this block of text, but you can only hope to find resolution if you listen to this twelve-hour compilation of one of the greatest podcasts of all time: the Giant Bombcast.
