Kevin Roose is a business and technology writer for New York magazine and the Daily Intelligencer blog. He has written several books including The Unlikely Disciple: A Sinner's Semester at America's Holiest University and Young Money: Inside the Hidden World of Wall Street's Post-Crash Recruits.

In 2015, Kevin asked Chris and his team of expert social engineers to hack him.  There was no restrictions - phishing, vishing, impersonation and a complete d0x were all on the table.  If haven't seen the outcome you can view in on the YouTube Video that already has over 2 million views.

We thought it would be a great idea to invite Kevin on the show and ask him a few questions:

  • What gave you this crazy idea?
  • Did you think you would come out the victor?
  • How did you really feel as you realized you where pwned?
  • How has it affected you after the hack?
  • Anything you do differently now?
  • And so much more....
