    His podcast is weekly.  I'd link twit.tv but grrrrrrrrrrr the site is down now.

    I don't know if you know Steve Gibson, but Steve is the one that coined the term spyware as he was the very first person to come across it and report on it.

    I won't say that the podcasts are a laugh a minute, but they they sure as heck are spectacular and full of accurate and important information.
