Great Security (and general) Podcast

By TheFinalWolf - Dec 18 2019
Read more
The last episode of the year’s comment about the christmas stocking made me lose it. I’ve only been listening for a short while (since the dubbing of the name ‘Fido’), but I’ve found this podcast very entertaining to listen to and I’m intrigued on everyone’s backstory to the point where I’m going to catchup from episode 1. The security aspect is just the icing on the cake. I find myself constantly biting at the bit awaiting each new episode. I even went and downloaded the apple podcast app just to leave this rating (I typically use my Android phone for media storage).

Great Security (and general) Podcast

By TheFinalWolf - Dec 18 2019

The last episode of the year’s comment about the christmas stocking made me lose it. I’ve only been listening for a short while (since the dubbing of the name ‘Fido’), but I’ve found this podcast very entertaining to listen to and I’m intrigued on everyone’s backstory to the point where I’m going to catchup from episode 1. The security aspect is just the icing on the cake. I find myself constantly biting at the bit awaiting each new episode. I even went and downloaded the apple podcast app just to leave this rating (I typically use my Android phone for media storage).

Security, simple
