Episode 3 – The Morris Worm’s Odyssey

Things take a fairly dark turn this episode as we discuss Homer’s Odyssey, which begins with Homer Simpson tying a boulder around his waist and going to a river to commit suicide. Garreth tells us about the legend of John Henry, the steel-driving man. Tom lightens the mood with the story of Robert Tappan Morris, creator of the Morris worm and the first person to be convicted under the United States Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, a story which turns out to be surprisingly innuendo-laden!
