From my standpoint, Security Now is one of the few TWiT shows still worth watching. For the most part, Steve Gibson does a solid job explaining security matters that are typically complex. On the negative side, the show is overly long, Gibson can get too far in the weeds, and the host (Leo...Read full review »

Leo, you cracked me up so much at the end of this podcast while I was cooking up a new style of food I’ve never cooked before, i had to stop and pause because I was laughing so hard. I have been listening religiously since at least 2017, and every week, it’s not the worst stuff happening, things...Read full review »

I’ve listened for years, supported Steve with multiple copies of SpinRite. Had no idea why I wasn’t getting new episodes only to find out what’s been in my app for years is now subscription only. Pass.

I have listened to this podcast since episode 1 and have not missed a single one. Steve Gibson is extremely knowledgable and personable, and is a guy I'd love to have a beer with. Unfortunately, the host, Leo Laporte, is prone to inject politics and conduct ad hominem attacks on individuals...Read full review »

Spun Wrong via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/03/23
Always listened to help me keep up with security issues and how to avoid them or just think differently about approaching them
SCranmer via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/19/23
its okay you need better topics
JVo12 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 07/08/23
There’s a lot of good content in this podcast, but it’s FAR TOO LONG. Even listening to this podcast at 2x speed (I listen to most podcasts at 1.5x) makes me wish Apple had an even faster mode. Please stop reading press releases and new laws in detail. Steve’s occasional rants are frustrating...Read full review »

You don’t see the benefits of crypto because you didn’t have your family starved to death by hyperinflation. Sqrl is a great example of something that would contribute to crypto security yet. “Crypto isn’t secure” by the cryptography show, and their reasoning is that the companies are bad?
Yagoax via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 06/14/23
I have learned so much from listening to this show! Steve Gibson has a unique ability to explain complex concepts in plain English. If you're new to the show and new to security I highly recommend listening to the earliest episodes!Read full review »

Thank you Steve (and Leo) for keeping this topic entertaining, as well as informative, for these many years. Because of you, I got more and more interested in the security field of IT and have finally transitioned into it. Still have a lot to learn, probably past 999, Steve.
BassAleMe via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/09/23
That show is nothing but a mess. Chaotic writing, horrible host and what feels like hours of ads.
0x3nSec via Apple Podcasts · Austria · 03/24/23
Leo seems to be falling further and further out of touch with what “we” the listeners want from a security podcast. Making your views facts in your mind does not make it true. Sorry to say I need to stop listening.
Tge Thinker I am via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/08/23
The best security podcast on the planet totally ruined by Leo’s leftist agenda. When he’s not eating he’s butting in. Steve setup your own podcast and go solo with donations.
center15 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/10/23
I make sure I pause any other podcast and listen to Steve. Great wealth of knowledge and simple to understand. Thank you and keep up the great work.
linux 66 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/25/22
This used to be a great podcast; very informative and educational about computer security. Increasing time is spent with the hosts opining on topics outside computer security and quite frankly outside their expertise. Stay in your lane!
MinaFeeder via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/21/22
Too much sales, and using the cloud, google, windows, passwords in extensions. Nope. The men seem sweet, but the content needs some updating for todays unsecured world.
Perma Link via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/18/22
Informative and entertaining.
TheMainRoot via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/07/22
More ads than content, condescending tone, opinion based content rather than that based in fact and very shallow exploration of the topics that are spoken about, not above a 9th grade level. Lose the 5 minute ad segments between every segment and make it at least seem like the show is not hosted...Read full review »

11/1/22 he just had to say "vote or there'll be no more elections/democracy". Not sure what MSNBC is doing sponsoring this podcast, but I'd prefer to just get tech news.Read full review »

The effort that Steve Gibson puts in to producing this podcast each week is simply astounding. It’s easy to see why he is so respected in the IT community. Mr Gibson, thank you.
Nelly7136 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/31/22
I have been listening to Security Now for probably a decade. Steve Gibson and Leo Laporte in Security Now represent more than a weekly news update, and more than clear technical instruction and advice which of course are also present. Steve Gibson and Leo Laporte have created an historically...Read full review »

I’ve been a listener for over 9 years. Steve and Leo are great. This podcast is like a comfortable pair of shoes; I’ll listen to it in traffic or fall asleep to it at night after a long day. Twit earned my trust by keeping things familiar in an ever changing world, which is why I’m annoyed by the...Read full review »

Time to lose Leo.

Weird how the best twit shows leave twit to be even better shows. Security now should… this message is brought to you by spinrite. leave twit and become a real security show.
[REDACTED] USER via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/15/22
Have loved this podcast for over a decade. Steve is always my go to for security advice!
Texas Michael via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/05/22
An essential weekly listen for anyone into the more technical side of tech.
jamesnp via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 04/22/22
Listened for years but it seems to have descended into continual anti Microsoft ranting that has nothing to do with security
Frustrated of Surrey via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/04/22
This podcast is great at explaining security problems to people who are not in the field. I love how each term is defined and common misuse of terms are also explained
frontier204 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/18/22
You have entertained and educated me for years and I am grateful for such a great show. I recommend this to anyone who has an interest in technology and how it works.
poplopez via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/02/22
Throughout the years I have listen to this podcast regularly and then dropped it for a while etc. I have to say that I am really glad that Steve and Leo still there for me when I come back because overall I have gotten very useful informative information I still use Firefox with NoScript...Read full review »

They don’t get much smarter than Steve Gibson when it comes to computer security, but his presentation of the materials is awful. I can’t even watch this show these days. Steve has citations, and he loves to read them. He’ll spend several minutes reading an online article outloud to the...Read full review »

This has to be one of the best technology podcasts out there. Thanks for all your efforts.

Simply the best security podcast online. Leo and Steve are great entertainers and consummate professionals to distill very complex information to a level I can understand it. One. Warning, Leo is the best sales man I know, in my fifteen years of listening, I have bought a mattress from Emma,...Read full review »
Juttley via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/06/21
There used to be some back and forth but now either Steve’s speech pattern has changed, I just noticed it, or he actually writes out EVERYTHING he’s going to say in the 2 hours…but it just seems stilted and artificial. Also: I get being the contrarian…believe me, but Steve’s ‘never try anything...Read full review »

I have been listening to Steve and Leo since the start of Security Now over 18 years ago and this show never ends to amaze me.

Steve is the Kim Kommando of the computer security sector. Knows a little but lacking when you dig deeper. Good for beginners.
User46451 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/24/21
Very entertaining, and thorough and understandable breakdowns of technical issues. Great way to stay current on cyber security incidents and advancements.
Bug301 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/18/21
Steve’s show has been a mainstay for years, highly recommend for those interested in learning or keeping up with the information security field.

About on your podcast I am going there that for days now and can’t receive no help with security issues and it may be important as I have received to letters stating that my data has been breached my Apple email will be my nickname

I’ve been in IT for over 20 years. Every time I listen to the podcast I’ll always learn something new and interesting. If you are not listening to this show. Please do.
TR079 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/14/21
The fact this podcast has survived for 15+ years fell you everything you need to know. It’s reliable and consistent, just like the security advice it offers. This is simply the best podcast for long term security knowledge
SMJBradshaw via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/14/21
Great listen for security news but it seems like most of the podcast is advertisements. It’s starts to become difficult to tell when they are talking about news or peddling something.
erok81 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/27/21
They spend more time reading out the blurbs of their sponsors than anything else. When they do start talking real stuff the repeat themselves over and over. Take away the sponsor broadcast and the repeat of info an the whole content of one episode could fit in 10 minutes. Not two hours. A...Read full review »
