We won! Smashing Security named Best Security Podcast

I’ll keep this brief as too much self-congratulation can be uncomfortable for all of us…

The sixth European Security Blogger Awards took place at Infosec in London on Tuesday night, and I’m very happy to say that “Smashing Security”, the podcast I co-host with my good chum Carole Theriault, was named “Best Security Podcast”.

That’s Carole you can see above, saying hello to the gorgeous trophy we won.

Thanks to everyone who has supported the show – whether it be by listening, sharing on social media, leaving a review, or convincing your company to sponsor the show.

As you can hear in the latest episode of our podcast, it was a great evening and we enjoyed hanging out with some of our past guests – including John Hawes, John Leyden, David McClelland, Mikko Hyppönen, and Paul Ducklin.

Smashing!

  1. Unfortunately, the podcast suffers so long as Carole Theriault is part of it. The last time I listened, (the last time I'll EVER listen), Alexa was being discussed. In her usual run-on blabbering style, Theriault mentioned the name Alexa about two dozen times in less than two minutes. She said the name and was cautioned that doing do would activate remote devices. Then, as a sort of "screw you" to the audience she kept it up, saying it as often as she could. She was obviously playing a bleep-me-if-you-can game with another host but still, highly unprofessional. She ruined the whole damned podcast for people listening on an Alexa enabled device. This woman is irritating at the best of times, but this dirt-dumb attempt at humor is right down there with Samantha Bee and about as creative. Saying something simply because you can doesn't mean you should.

  2. Hiya – Carole Here. Graham sent me a link to this comment and I thought it best to reply. You make a good point re Alexa mentions. We do try and censor all of them, but I realised we missed a few on that episode. Will be more careful in future.

    I know you won't be listening, but at least other home assistant users will benefit from the useful bits in this comment. As for the snarks – really sorry you feel that way. No hard feelings – I know I can't be everyone's cuppa tea. Thing is, our X thousand regular listeners – those that helped us get award for Best Security Podcast – seem to think we're doing something cool, so I am sticking with them.

    I do wish you oodles of luck in your search for a new cyber podcast to enjoy – there are lots of good ones out there …Check out this shortlist :) https://heimdalsecurity.com/blog/security-podcasts/ Or even better: start your own – I'll listen!
