Missing Michelle 😿
Great podcast but has definitely lost something since Michelle left. I wish we could have had a little more context re. her departure or possibly even an episode where she could have said goodbye or something - just felt very abrupt and the lack of any context just makes it seem like idk something bad happened.
Also, really haven’t enjoyed the “meta” discussions on recent podcasts (eps. 101 & 102 specifically), such as “how can society keep kids from turning into hackers”. Honestly guys, better minds than any of ours have already tackled such issues and I think real solutions very quickly delve into things like politics and morality, something I don’t really tune into this show to hear about.
What I *do* enjoy is interesting ideas from other fields, discussion of how to protect oneself from SE attacks, etc. Please stay focused - don’t like skipping episodes but recently I just can’t get through them anymore whereas I used to savor each one.
Thank you for all the hard work that goes into these episodes. I only share the above feedback with the hope that it can help you all improve 😊
This podcast is a must in my monthly routine every month a interesting and valuable topic is chosen with industry leaders as guest. Each episode is a mini seminar!
Punches way above the weight class
Chris Hadnagy has been a leader in Social Engineering for over a decade. His interviews of Robin Derek, Joe Navarro, and countless subject matter experts have helped me over the years as a Security contractor. The mindset, how to perceive your surroundings, it’s all critical to success. This is info to use at work and at home, to protect those you love. I can’t recommend this podcast enough, plus Clutch...’nuff said!
