"I like bullshittin... Some might say I'm quite skilled at it."

Dan Shumow is a Senior Software Development Engineer in the Security and Cryptography group at Microsoft. 

Dan shares many stories in this podcast like how he wanted to be a ninja when he was a kid, beating up the neighbors trees and getting into trouble and how this connects to him becoming interested in cryptography.

We spend time discussing what it is exactly that a cryptographer does and he shares his views on education, the "internet of things" (aka how the "internet of shit" that makes us less safe) and what a regular person can do to educate & protect themselves about web security.
