Ernie and Jack (co-host Jack, not dog Jack) discuss the relaunching of the darknet market AlphaBay by one of the previous founders who escaped the bust in 2017, DeSnake, and the long-standing debate of how exactly to pronounce his name.

The team also discusses Alan's path into the cybersecurity world; we knew the No Password Required tradition of atypical paths into the cyber world was safe when he started his journey with a sociology degree and a willingness to crawl under a desk.
