Social engineers and OSINT investigators always seem to have a great story. And you can hear many of those stories through their presentations at the Layer 8 Conference in Providence, RI in June. But not every story can fill a whole presentation and not all storytellers can get to the conference, which brings us here.
This podcast will only be stories, told by the investigators themselves. No interviews, no slides, just stories. Some might be as short as five minutes, some may even go for 45 minutes. We hope you’ll enjoy them.
