All aboard the hype train! We jump straight into the latest news that the supply "cold chain" for the much-awaited COVID vaccine could have been compromised. Apparently, a cyber espionage campaign has targeted the supply chain for the cold storage. BUT – and this is a big but – this all sounds a little tenuous to the team. Considering we didn't even know we had a vaccine by September, which is when the campaign was supposed to have started, how could attackers have already started targeting the supply chain?

The team also strays into 'flat earth' territority for a brief and surprising pitstop – listen out for Kev "the Director of Truth's" excellent rant, it's very enjoyable.

We also get into firmware. When was the last time you updated your firmware? From anti-adultery mattresses (yup, you read that right) to smart mugs (and you read that right too!), we somehow end up with a long episode of 'hackers could...'.
