Watch Your Pi Hole – Episode 51
EP051 Watch Your Pi Hole
S2E2 drops with a discussion on DNS filtering and how to do it using cool tools like the Pi Hole.
This episode was not recorded in front of a live studio audience. The audience already left because it was very late at night. If there’s any low energy I’m attributing it to that.
Turns out DNS filtering is actually crazy cool. There’s a ton of power there and a lot of fun things you could do. There’s also a lot of practical uses we could put it to from both a home and small business perspective.
Don’t believe me? We talk about spying on your children, supplementing your income for your mom and pop shop and the Nintendo game Chronotrigger. How can that NOT have you listening already?!
This post was also written very late at night.

5-D’oh Homer Security – Episode 50
EP050 5-D’oh Homer Security
Season two has kicked off Y’all with home security
I don’t get the seasons, or how they work. But whatever, that’s what’ we’re calling it.
This season we pivot to focus more on home security and all the tips tricks problems and solutions around what security minded home owners and folks who want to layer on a little protection to their home offices face.
We’re also going to try and give a little more airtime to small business since a lot of home security cross pollinates with super small businesses.
I’m not saying this is going to be the best season of this show yet.
But i’m not NOT saying that.

Fr-Agile Development – Episode 49
EP049 FR-Agile Development
This year’s episode is about Dev-Ops, Agile Development and a couple other interesting development methodologies that are floating around. It’s MOSTLY about Dev-Ops though.
Max found this video series, at the bottom of a dumpster and had me watch them to try and explain what Dev-Ops was. Turns out that I didn’t really get a whole lot out of the video series because frankly they were put in that dumpster for a reason.
This episode was delayed because of a toilet problem. Actually I cover that in the episode in a new segment I like to call “Explaining why the episode was so darned late”

Intelligent in an artificial kind of way – Episode 48
EP048 Intelligent in an artificial kind of way
This week it’s Artificial Intelligence and machine learning.
There’s a lot of real cool things being done as computing power gets cheaper and more accessible than ever before.
What kind of impact might this have on infosec and the ongoing battle between blackhats & whitehats?
I honestly think that we talk about that this episode. I don’t really remember since I edited it a little while ago.
But check it oooooout

Who put that thing in my internet? – Episode 47
EP047 Who put that thing in my internet?
Dial in folks, we have ourselves an episode about the internet and things. Or… of things?
The internet of things and their vulnerabilities.
That’s right some times things that make your life easier can come at a price.
A PRICE SO HIGH IT’S STAGGERING!
Then once you’ve saved up that staggering price and buy the thing you find out that there’s another secret hidden price. The one you thought I was talking about originally!!
Whatever man, who writes this nonsense anyways? Geez.
Internet of things devices can have vulnerabilities just like all computers and we’re going to discuss some of them and what you can try to do to get to enjoy these internet of things devices without giving up the whole fishtank!

Tracking U – Episode 46
EP046 Tracking U
This week we talk about online (spoilers: And offline) tracking and the people who do it.
It’s a banner year at the old in-security family, two count on the podcast front and another on the way?!
We discuss Microsoft, google, facebook and the way they go about collecting data from unsuspecting internet users. We also take an in-depth look at cookies and how they are now used for more than ever intended.
Delicious delicious cookies. Used for tracking? next you’re going to tell me that brownies can be used to get you stoned.
