Ten Security Podcasts You Should Be Listening To
Sometimes listening is just more fun. My morning commute wouldn’t be half as enjoyable as it is, were it not for my favorite podcasts.

The Standard Deviant Security Podcast
Description: From the creator: “We tend to be a little insular and forget that risk management has been around for hundreds of years (in the form of insurance, actuarial science, and economics) and wasn’t invented when someone decided to do a security risk assessment. Vulnerability disclosure, justifying security expenditures and botnet markets are actually new versions of the same issues economists have been studying for a very long time. An expert on human behavior can probably tell you more about why a phishing campaign was successful than a security professional. I want to hear from those people.”
The Southern Fried Security Podcast
Description:The Southern Fried Security Podcast is designed to fill the gap between highly technical security podcasts and Security Now. This is more of a “family friendly” podcast compared to Pauldotcom and Exotic Liability.
The Exotic Liability Podcast
Description: The Exotic Liability Podcast is perhaps the most entertaining security podcast out today, always packed with great information. Topics frequently discussed are penetration testing and social engineering. It should be noted that this particular podcast is NSFW.
