Jedi Wannabi ,

Keeping an old man up to date.

Great little info chunks that keep me from feeling like Steve Buscemi's, "Hello, fellow kids!"

Meatball_army ,

Rick is great. Good show.

Who you calling a nerd? I love the “nerd reference” section! HA! Really like to have a straight forward context for some words or phrases I pretend to understand but don’t really... should be required listening for all in infosec.

GottaRun21 ,

What did that mean? Now I know.

Aha! At last a quick and easy way to learn what that language means without having to ask my colleagues a dumb question or trusting a Web search. The added bonus of pop culture references really helps make it all
make sense.
