The best security podcast – ever

Recently I quit Red Hat’s security team and although it was tough to do it was made so much easier by the fact that although I left I remained daily friends and comrades with Josh Bressers who heads up the product security side of RHEL.

Josh has a podcast (after appearing on mine) and I’ve been subscribed since Episode 1, the show is co presented with Kurt┬áSeifried another Red Hatter. Kurt resides in Canada and he and I are both permanent staffers on the Cloud Security Alliance.

The podcast is recorded remotely and does not suffer the issues 95% of remote podcasts have with Skype or dumb lazy mixing, you’d never know these two are not in the same room. Audacity FTW. Who needs proprietary software ?

Josh is now following me out the door at Red Hat to pastures new and our world continues to turn with no change at all and the podcast I hope will also continue because for me it’s an hour of my week where two of my two favourite people talk to me in my car.

It’s been funny because when I was at Red Hat Josh and I had a weekly video conference and recently after leaving Josh kicked it back off because we talk anyway almost every day anyway and I’m so glad he is in my life. When we first met we did NOT get on. I have no idea why, but we just didn’t gel. Now… I can’t imagine a time when this erudite, amusing, guy, bright as a button is not in my daily life – he’s become my sounding board.

So get your ass over to Soundcloud or their website and subscribe/follow. Also listed on all your favourite podcast search engines.

Here is the latest episode if you needed proof.



Don’t suffer with aches, get them sorted !

I’m a mid 40s sedentary male with bad habits and am generally too busy a lot of the time. I hurt my shoulder badly recently and rather than go back and get treatment or help I put up with it rubbing in pain killing gel and taking anti inflamatory drugs. For weeks I’ve had lack of movement, disrupted sleep and even travelling and being in front of an audience in Holland this week I had to pretend I wasn’t in acute discomfort.

Cue connecting up with Moveology in Swindon today. They have two branches one in St Albans, one here in Wiltshire so I got up at 6am to make the first appointment of the day.

I had no idea what to expect, if in my minds eye I could get guidance and a bit of pain alleviation that was really my best hope. What I discovered was so much more beneficial. Daryl put me immediately at ease and reset my shoulder without causing distress, discomfort and alarm. He listened took copious notes and he made me feel I mattered and that all he wanted to do was to get me back to feeling me again.

If you are in discomfort and you need osteopathic care I can totally recommend Daryl at Moveology in Swindon, check their website at, I’m going back to get the rest of me fixed soon.
