    The Bible: Reading It Figuratively or Literally?

    The Bible: Reading It Figuratively or Literally?

    We're talking about the Bible and whether one should read it figuratively or literally! Are people born with sin or are we inherently good when we come into this world? These topics and more religious stories are discussed in this episode as Brett continues to dive deeper into religion by asking questions to discover his own faith.

    ABOUT BRETT
    Brett Johnson. Former U.S. Most Wanted Cybercriminal. Now Good Guy. The United States Secret Service called Mr. Johnson "The Original Internet Godfather" for his role in refining modern financial cybercrime. Or to put it another way: Brett was convicted of 39 felonies, placed on the U.S. Most Wanted List, escaped from prison, and… he built the first organized cybercrime community,

    Shadowcrew was a precursor to today's darknet and darknet markets, and it laid the foundation for the way modern cybercrime channels operate today. Johnson was sentenced to 90 months in Federal Prison. End of story? Not hardly. Brett found redemption through his sister, his wife Michele, and finally the FBI. He was given the chance to turn his life around. He took it. Today, Brett is considered one of the leading authorities on cybercrime, identity theft, and cybersecurity on the planet. He works hard to protect businesses and consumers from the type of person he used to be.

    A Criminal's Redemption Story (ft. Eddie Miro)

    Eddie Miro joins Brett to talk about his criminal past and his new book, Outlaw Summer, Cyber Dreams: A Hacker’s Journey Through Crime And Redemption.

    Eddie shares his extraordinary journey from a life of crime to a respected cybersecurity professional. His story begins with a family history steeped in outlaw culture, organized crime, and follows his path of transformation and redemption.

    Over the past two decades, he has reinvented myself, leaving behind a criminal past to become an educator, communicator, and ethical social engineer. Eddie's transition to cybersecurity was a natural progression, with his checkered background, providing him with a unique perspective and invaluable real-world experience as a former threat actor.
