Episode 11: Jericho, champion of small misunderstood woodland creatures.

In this episode I am joined by Jericho, a champion of small misunderstood woodland creatures

We talk about the changes in the ‘hacker culture’ from the the days of party lines and trashing for tthe obtainment and sharing of hard to come across knowledge (this being pre-google days).

I reflect how it seems Attrition.org is a continuation of those days, as a way to continue disseminating not so easy to come across knowledge.

The sharing of this information though, does come at a cost. Jericho covers how people have sent him both legal and physical threats all over his tenacity to uncover the truth about shameful actors in the hacker community. We then cover what he does in life to help him de-stress, spoiler: He volunteers outside of tech with wildlife rehabilitation centers and finds benefit from exercise.

Episode 10: XORshac, talks burnout, mental health and empathy.

I speak with “XORshac” an actual doctor of psychology who I met at the first disconnect.camp where he talked about social engineering. In this episode XORshac answers my questions about burnout, stress and healing the mind. We see some connections between a person’s empathy and their ability to live a happy life by simply being kinder to others.

I strongly encourage a listen for anyone concerned or dealing with their mental health, or the state of mental health in the world today.

Episode 8: Funsized, Followup on life, cons, being blue.

A followup episode, where Funsized and I chat about how shellcon.io went, tell tales about tamper evidence contests, counterfeit badges, and the origins of porno-claus. We end on a great side discussion regarding dealing with depression after conferences, self-analysis and mental health.

Episode 6: Donovan Farrow, The little scamp who could.

Donovan founded Alias Forensics Inc. in 2010. Born and raised in Oklahoma, Donovan’s vision has always been to create a community that grows and supports a fresh aptitude in Information Security. In this episode we talk about growing up as a trouble-maker kid from a poor family, working odd jobs, fixing computers at his schools, having no resources and making all his hard work come together to found his own incident response/digital forensics company.

Episode 5: Funsized and Sean, Growing up and challenges in college

In this episode I talk with two of the shellcon.io organizers and founders, Funsized and Sean. These guys have two different paths coming into the hacker culture, but both have embraced what it is to think like a hacker and get things done.

Episode 4: Tprophet, Creating Solutions not Problems

This interview with Tprophet covers the experience of LGBTQ+ in the hacker community since the 90’s and the impact of QueerCon, and his many other pursuits from creating problems to solve (telephreak challenge) to solving problems that affect everyone (like robocallers) at scale, making life better for everyone.

Episode 2: Int80 of Dual Core, from AOL punting to compressing rhymes.

In this episode we talk about the history of Int80 of Dual Core, from his early days punting people off AOL to his start as a nerdcore rapper leading to the creation of Dual Core.
