For more on Steve Gibson see Wiki on him or his webpage http://www.grc.com/intro.htm
He also provides some useful computer software, including freeware.
Computer Nerds may want to look at SpinRite (Note: SpinRite is NOT free) his HDD recovery tool, it works on pretty much any HDD, even things like Tivo and console games.
I find this podcast useful for Computer news and tidbits, and sometimes neat Hacker tidbits.
Not saying it is for everyone, I am not a true hard core computer geek myself, but I usually understand enough from this show to know if I want to google or look up links mentioned to learn more.
I also like the fact that they provide several resources for each podcasts, including transript, below is a list from Gibson's website:
Each episode has SIX resources:
|High quality 64 kbps mp3 audio file|
|Quarter size, bandwidth-conserving,|
16 kbps (lower quality) mp3 audio file
|A web page with any supplementary notes|
|A web page text transcript of the episode|
|A simple text transcript of the episode|
