We see lots of movies and TV shows where hackers can infiltrate our lives with just a few keystrokes. But is it real? We’re here to find out. Malicious cat photos, sketchy Wi-Fi networks, rogue rentals, all-knowing webcams - those are just a few topics tackled in Hackable?, where we let our hackers shed light on just how secure we really are.

Love it

I adore this show. The host is engaging and funny. The information is clear and free of jargon. And it’s fun! I love hearing how my toaster could get hacked and how the best anti hacks are low tech and easy for non tech people to do. Keep safe!

Entertaining podcast for the average joe on how you can be possibly be hacked

Very entertaining podcast for the average joe on how hackers can get your data/personal info with very little effort. I’ve worked in IT for over 25 years and am a self professed geek who loves technology so a lot of the concepts discussed/demonstrated aren’t foreign to me. If you are a hardcore techie you aren’t going to learn a ton from this podcast but you will certainly be entertained as the naive host gets hacked and manages to sound surprised every time it happens. I do feel sorry for Pedro as he has been the victim of a few hacks when he wasn’t aware of them happening (dead drops and remote control in particular) and didn’t seem to be all that happy about it.

Too silly.

I can’t stand the approach this podcast takes with the quirky jokes and level 101 discussions and dialogues as though the host truly has no idea what a computer is every episode. Just silly.

Continues going downhill

I started listening to Hackable when it first aired with episode 1. The podcast started off well, interesting stories put out in a good format. Lately though, it has become more of a not well done dramatic presentation, with clearly fake “real” scenes that weigh down the point, which is to learn about security. Disappointing, hopefully they get back to what they used to do and make this podcast interesting again.

Wonderful, interesting, professional

I, am old. 64 to be precise, so I am only marginally computer savvy. But I am fascinated by all things digital. This podcast does a great job of speaking about all issues cyber, whilst explaining issues to folks not expert at computer issues. Plus the stories in addition to being fascinating are also often quite funny.

Informative - in an interesting and understandable style

This is a wonderfully helpful podcast! The information presented is a set of “real-world” topics that give the listener a wealth of knowledge of security considerations in everyday life. The information is clearly presented, and easy to understand. Each episode has a list of things we can do to be more secure. Very well-done!

Problems downloading, otherwise great

Fun and informative. I enjoyed listening all of the first season, but starting with season two had problems downloading (iTunes on Windows). On some (but not all) episodes I get the dreaded exclamation point in iTunes, and can't download or play the episode. Couldn't say if this is a problem on my end, but I'm subscribed to a dozen or so other podcasts that update as expected. Not sure if McAfee looks at these reviews, but hoping there is something that can correct this. Thanks.Specifically, the episodes published on Nov 11 and Dec 16 download as expected, but the others don't. Weird.

Informative and entertaining

I am a long time IT specialist and have a good amount of experience with the subjects discussed here. I find this show really entertaining and have suggested it to many of my non-tech friends to get a better idea of what can actually happen to you out there (CHANGE YOUR PASSWORDS). They don't seem to believe me, so maybe they will beilive Geoff. Keep up the good work! The show is well done, so I know the team is putting a lot of time into it. Sometimes I wish for more details, but understand that is probably out of scope for the show. It's not, per say, a technical show. Which is why I recommend it to my non-technical friends.
