Podcasts & Channels

BarCode Podcast

I love the concept behind this podcast by Chris Glanden I love how each episode has a drink recipe and how Chris asks each guest what they would name their own infosec bar.

Darknet Diaries

My all time favorite podcast by Jack Rhysider! The stories and music are top notch. My kids love the physical pen test stories. 

Hacker Valley Studio

This is a podcast that is near and dear to me, by Ron Eddings and Chris Cochran. I always feel inspired after listening to this podcast. Sometimes working in tech can be challenging and its nice to know I am not alone whether it’s imposter syndrome or burnout.

A really informative and humorous YouTube channel that gets down into the weeds where I enjoy being.
