Be nice to Brian or he'll crush your tinfoil hat with a black helicopter...

On this week's show we're joined by a very special guest -- Brian Snow.

Until his recent retirement, Brian was the technical director of information assurance for the United States National Security Agency. So, in other words he knows a few things about information security and in this week's show we cover a bunch of stuff with him -- everything from Google's recent trouble in China to e-voting, to cyrpto trust models and more.

That's after the news.

In this week's sponsor interview Veracode's Tyler Shields joins us to chat about the Blackberry proof of concept spyware he's created... apparently it's still not too hard to get custom malware installed on to the Blackberry and Tyler will tell us all about it!
