Great podcast

The format helps bring security to the forefront. As we are all responsible for security this podcast is for anyone and everyone!

Get to the point

I listened to you talk about screwing down boards on your deck for 16 minutes before I gave up. No talk of actual Infosec. Should be a Quick intro of the guest, their background and right into relative topics. Stop silly questions like how was your weekend that no one cares about. This is meant to be constructive criticism as a fellow podcaster. Cheers!

Sad

So, unfortunately the first episode I listened to was the one recorded during what I think was the one during the protests. It is really too bad because they are struggling so hard to talk about it without really asking “how does what I’m saying compare with the experience of feeling like your life literally does not matter, and the peril that black families go through when they walk out the door.” I am really trying to explain this and not be hyperbolic. Being able to disconnect from what’s happening is actually a privilege. If you’re going to sleep with your gun next to you bc of what one crackpot Faux antifa account says, imagine how it feels when the state sanctions law enforcement “going after” you to the point that cops who literally murder people get away with it. It’s a larger conversation, but it’s truly a privilege to be able to say “I’m turned off by some of these messages bc it feels like there’s no place for me.” Of course there is, there must be. But you have to keep fighting to understand what’s going on.
