Great podcast for aspiring and current cyber professionals

I’m doing a career pivot into Cybersecurity following my military career. And James is a fantastic host and I enjoy the balance or sometimes shakes things up in conversation. It’s a great opportunity to get insight from many cyber professionals out there doing the job now. The perspectives he brings to the show personally help me to learn more about the industry.

Overall brilliant show with amazing guests. One of my favorite sources to gain insight on the industry.
