How could you not find something you like here? We'll have new vulnerabilities being announced, Jeremiah Grossman talking about cyber insurance, Adi Gupta talking IoT security, Jelle Niemantsverdriet talking about designing better security for end users, Andrew Krug talking about hardening AWS, Peleus Uhley talking about automation, Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek talking car hacking, and Jennifer Granick and Riana Pfefferkorn talking about handling technical assistance demands from law enforcement. 

Plus, these are live, four- or five-hour shows. That's like two back-to-back SuperBowls without halftime breaks and the first one went into overtime. That's like two back-to-back Major League Baseball games that went into 12, 13, 14 innings. So even if you aren't interested in the infosec content, at least tune in on Thursday afternoon to see how well Brian and I are holding up.

Maybe if you send us water, medicine, and Reeses Pieces around the time Dan Kaminsky is talking about how we could lose the Internet, we'll survive all the way through to Marco Ortisi's discussion of recovering a RSA private key from a TLS session with perfect-forward secrecy. Either way, it should be good viewing!
