Playing Your Part

Introductions

– Your co-hosts are Andy Willingham and Martin Fisher. Two good, ole boys from the south
who are living north of the Mason Dixon Line. Once again we’re all together to record this week. It’s been a
few weeks due to all sorts of technical and life issues.

– News analysis and general yankee-ness brought to you by Steve Ragan

– Follow us on Twitter (@SFSPodcast) where we’ll be tweeting about new episodes &
interviews.

– 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…
