@ddench Glad you enjoyed it, that one was a bit more off-the-rails than usual, but with good reason. 🙂

@turkusec Provided I can find some free time, I do have some plans that may be of interest to the broader community. :-) I'm glad you enjoyed the madness though, that was a fun one to put together.

Episode 50 – Tabletop D&D with Tim De Block, Ed Rojas, Daniel Ebbutt, and Kyle Andrus

It's amazing how your work history is hard to shed. I haven't done professional development for a few years now, yet I still get pinged by recruiters. Old jobs feel like the mob sometimes. Once you're in, you can never get out.

Purple Squad Security - Episode 49 – The Red Team Life with Curtis Brazzell

Curtis Brazzell from Pondurance joins me to talk about red teaming and managing red teams.


I'm tired. Maybe teaching, working full time, running a podcast, trying to start up a side hustle, studying for some more certs and having two kids is a bit much.

@tinker The internet is a great place to re-invent yourself. I feel you - spent 15 years as a developer, then started taking seriously. I still can't go back to some side projects I wrote, including a POS for a local bakery my friends run. Kills me everytime, but it is what it is.

Don't take your work home with you if you can avoid it. Go hit a gym, shoot at a range, or do something that doesn't take a lot of mental effort - it'll help.
