    Curious About The Lingering Effects of Covid-19 From a Survivor's Point of View

    Curious About The Lingering Effects of Covid-19 From a Survivor's Point of View

    In honor of our 20th episode, I wanted to take on a serious topic today. Today I discuss some of the lingering effects of Covid-19 from the perspective of a survivor. That survivor is none other than my youngest son Malik Abraham. Malik contracted the virus in June, was given a clean COVID free clearance by the doctor on July 1st, but has still dealt with lingering symptoms.

    Malik lost his sense of taste and smell as many have with COVID and today he talks to us about the psychological impact of dealing with that. Parents, you want to make sure that your college-age kids listen to this episode.

    Curious About SecBSD with Charles "bsdbandit" Shirer

    Curious About SecBSD with Charles "bsdbandit" Shirer

    This is an absolutely fun episode to listen to. This conversation has a lot of "throw back" feel to it as we discuss everything from AOL, Novel Netware, Atari 2600, and much much more. The entire discussion leads up to Charles introducing us to a new BSD based PenTesting OS called SecBSD. 

    If you are a gamer, you really want to listen to this and see how Charles got his early start as a gamer which lead to system administration, and ultimately to a threat hunter/offensive security researcher.
