The Southern Fried Security Podcast

The Southern Fried Security Podcast is designed to be an information security podcast that fills the gap between technical security podcasts and Security Now.

Episode 1 - Take 2

I. Introductions

– Your co-hosts are Andy Willingham and Martin Fisher.
– News analysis and general yankee-ness brought to you by Steve Ragan.
– You can find out more about this motley crew on The Staff page.

II. Announcement, Gossip, and Smack Talk

– Welcome to episode 1 Take 2 of the SFS Podcast. Follow us on Twitter (@SFSPodcast) where we’ll be tweeting about new episodes & interviews. The original episode 1 ended up on the cutting room floor so we’re back from the holiday break and trying it again.
– The podcast is intended to fill the gap between the technical podcasts on security and Security Now. We’ll be focusing on operations, leadership, and news items that you may have missed the week before.
– We want the podcast to be friendly, funny, and make it so you can listen to it with your kids in the car. Nothing against Pauldotcom and Exotic Liability (we listen to them too!) but we wanted to do something a little bit different…
