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....

This month the panel and crew you know and love (well we hope) is banging our heads together to discuss the topic of the RSA and the NSA.  While we can't know for sure what is true or not, should we boycott the RSA Conference?  Should we boycott the products sold by RSA?  Is it fair that the NSA is spying on people from its own country?

We may not have any great answers, but that is what we are talking about this month.  Our usual banter, jokes and intelligent conversation ensue.
