Podcast recommendations.

This is an open series where Hacker Public Radio listeners can share and recommend podcasts that they listen to.

Inoffensive in every region of the world

Special thanks to Thaj for sharing "Audio for Podcasting: Episode 2 - Equalization" (HPR3345 - ). I will be trying to apply some of his advice in this recording.

In case you have not heard my previous episodes, this introduction may be helpful. If you have already listened to my previous 3 episodes, I apologize for this sounding redundant.

Why am I recording this series?

As I reviewed the HPR List of Recommended Topics, "What podcasts you listen to" jumped off the screen at me.

I am passionate about information security

We desperately need people to fill infosec jobs in many different specialties, including

Security operations, engineering, & architecture

Governance Risk, & Compliance

Application Security

Security Education


Infosec is a rapidly changing field, and it is critical to stay current

As a result I listen to TONS of infosec related podcasts

Because there are so many podcasts to list, I have broken them down into 6 different episodes based on topics:

  • Part 1 - News & Current Events
  • Part 2 - General Information Security
  • Part 3 - Career & Personal Development
  • Part 4 - Social Engineering
  • Part 5 -
    • Hacks & Attacks
    • Technical Information & Learning
    • Infosec Community / Social / History
  • Part 6 - Infosec Leadership

Part 4

Social Engineering

Note: Social Engineering has a special place in my heart. In a previous life, I developed and ran the security awareness program for a large organization. I based the program on many of the threats we experienced on a daily basis, and the challenges users encountered, and sometimes fell for. As a result, much of the material addressed detecting and reporting social engineering attacks.

I think that those interested in the shows mentioned may also enjoy "The Layer 8 Podcast". It is made by Layer8Conference and each episode features a different person with OSInt ties or experiences and they share stories and talk about how they got into the field. It is more entertainment rather than education centered, so someone not familiar with the field can enjoy it and get a better understanding of what OSInt and redteaming are.

Thanks for the feedback, Porkchop.

Hi Porkchop,

I will be adding the Layer 8 podcast to my list. Thanks for the feedback.
