The Andys take a break from movie discussion to talk tech, about the Meltdown and Spectre exploits that allow malicious people to grab secret information from loads of different types of computer. Andy Balaam insists that the way it works is fascinatingly clever, and there is only one audible yawn from Andy Cockerill.

Also mentioned are Noah, and an insightful bit of feedback from Danni about Colossal.

There’s a lot more detail on Meltdown and Spectre on the Project Zero Blog.
