Jon and Eric have worked in the security space as developers, architects and leaders for more years than they care to count. From commentary on current events to random musings, they chat (mostly) about security and technology topics. However, life is more than just the day job. From beekeeping adventures to hiking mountains to favorite shows, there's always something fun to wrap up the show.
What's Opera Doc?
Eric and Jon both have good Thanksgiving meals and breaks, Looney Tunes at the Oregon Symphony, and a recommendation for Glass Onion. iSpoof takedown in the UK, significant fines down under, and trusting your laptop to a repair shop may result in privacy violations. For fun we have a video teaching lockpicking to blind students, and Roal Road, an online portal for authors.

It's Thanksgiving week in the US. More FTX nonsense. Apple's "privacy" is not what you think. Zeppelin ransomware keys. TwitterIsGoingGreat.com is exactly what you think it is. Chicken chicken chicken. Help for Honeybees. Mother Learning books.

Eric and Jon both go on road trips, Eric goes stargazing, Jon fails to fix his mule. The FTX debacle continues apace, an "accidental" 70k lockscreen bypass bounty, a russian mobile software company masquerading as a US company, and 15k wordpress sites compromised to boost SEO for worthless Q&A sites. For fun we have minutia about the definition and measurement of time, and an AI model trained on scientific papers and textbooks.
This Does Not Math
Eric goes to a High School play while Jon plays with a laser engraver over a soggy weekend. Eric chats about MFA in Antarctica. Jon talks simple CVEs and order of operations. Web3 is still going great, FYI. Finally, check out a Submarine Cable Map online and decide for yourself if bees have feelings.

Halloween passes quickly this year; Eric finishes his kitchen magnetic board project, and Jon finally sets up the laser engraver. Three years later (was episode 70!) Amazon finally builds Eero into 5th gen Echo devices. An act may pass to help the government use open source software better, the FTC takes steps against Drizly CEO to enforce better security practices, and Android droppers found on Google Play. For fun, we have a nearly 2km long train in Switzerland and an obituary for Kathleen Booth, an early computer pioneer and inventor of Assembly Language.
