Podman, with Daniel Walsh and Brent Baude
Red Hat maintains a full set of container tools and libraries, bringing their pedigree in security and operating system engineering. The most notable of those tools, Podman, has had a surge in popularity this month, after Docker announced changes in their subscription model. Daniel Walsh leads the Red Hat containers team, and Brent Baude is the architect and primary maintainer of Podman.
Prodfiler, with Thomas Dullien
Prodfiler is a new tool that provides fleet-wide full-system continuous profiling. It is in some ways the second act of its co-creator Thomas Dullien, who is an internationally-renowned reverse engineer and vulnerability researcher under the name Halvar Flake. Thomas joins us to discuss his career, what you should profile in a distributed system, and why you can’t sell something with a negative cost.

KEDA, with Tom Kerkhove

Celebrate KEDA reaching Incubation in the CNCF by listening to an interview with maintainer Tom Kerkhove from Codit. But first, learn about Craig’s worst concert experience.
Talos, with Andrew Rynhard
Kubernetes lets us manage our infrastructure declaratively, so why do we still manage the underlying OS with a myriad of different text files? And why allow shell and SSH access to a machine that should be immutable? So asked Andrew Rynhard before creating Talos, a Linux distribution built for Kubernetes. He’s now CTO of Talos Systems, a company founded to take it to market.
