Security Now Podcast

I really like the Security Now Podcast with Steve Gibson, alternate podcast link on TwitTV, Steve is a total Nerd Baller, he has had Nerd jobs since he was 13 years old!

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
Ready-to-print PDF (Acrobat) transcript
