Risky Business #420 -- What we don't know about Watergate 2.0

July 29, 2016 -- On this week's show we're taking a look at the DNC leaks, but don't worry, we won't be getting bogged down in the same old angles. Instead, we're going to chat to Lorenzo Franceschi-Bicchierai from VICE motherboard about his experience in interviewing the Guccifer 2 persona.

Then we'll hear from Kevin Poulsen about what these latest developments mean for Wikileaks. It's a topic you're probably sick of hearing about this week, but stick with us, we've got some new angles, and they're relevant.

Risky Business #419 -- Brian Krebs on future of bank cybercrime

July 22, 2016 -- On this week's show we're catching up with Brian Krebs of Krebs On Security.

Risky Business #418 -- The rise of the crypto-Taliban

July 15, 2016 -- On this week's show we're chatting with The Grugq about secure messaging. Facebook has announced it's rolling out an end-to-end encryption feature and the reaction to this wonderful announcement has been somewhat bizarre. We'll be talking to Grugq about why crypto absolutists are hating on companies that are rolling out non-default e2e features. We'll also talk about a couple of interesting case studies in which e2e encryption did absolutely nothing for the people using it.

Risky Business #417 -- PlayPen ruling to let FBI off leash?

July 8, 2016 -- In this week's feature interview we're chatting with Stanford's very own Jennifer Granick about a recent ruling in a Virginia court that appears to give the FBI permission to hack into any computer it wants, sans warrant. Well that's what the headlines are screaming, anyway. But as you'll hear, it's not quite that black and white.

Risky Business #416 -- Post holiday carnage edition

May 27, 2016 -- In this week's feature slot we're joined by cryptographer Matthew Green of Johns Hopkins University. He'll be arguing against the subversion of encryption technologies this week. Consider it a counterpoint to last week's discussion with Stewart A Baker, former NSA general counsel. This week we get the other side of the argument!

This week's sponsor interview is also a cracker. We're chatting with Bromium's co-founder and CTO Simon Crosby. He's been spending a fair bit of time lately trolling rival CTOs on Twitter, which has been somewhat hilarious to watch.
