The RallySecurity podcast is a weekly episodic show where we cover the latest information security news, hot topics, interview some of the top talent in the infosec community, as well as covering topics like mental health and other self-care concerns affecting the infosec community.
To us, RallySecurity means being active in rallying our community members, helping recover and return to fighting the good fight. Each day brings news of more breaches, vulnerabilities, and bad news. Its easy to succumb to burn out, to get depressed and despondent, to feel hopeless. We wanted a place that we could lift up spirits and have a good time, as well as share knowledge and information with the community.
We record live each week at twitch.tv/rallysecurity and then push the episode to our Youtube channel for archiving. In addition to video formats, we also convert each episode to mp3 and release it to several different podcast apps and websites via our RSS feed.
We launched the show back in July of 2016 wanting to do a couple things. We saw Twitch as an interesting platform for creating and sharing content with the security community. Other security shows also have video content, but none really embraced the Internet of Memes to its fullest potential. We’ve all attended security conferences and had really productive conversations at the bars. We wanted to bring in other opinions and try to host those bar conversations, as well as allow a large number of folks to both listen in and contribute to those conversations.
Ben and Tony (DA_667) started the show back in July of 2016, and its been action packed, nonstop lulz since. We were excited to add Danny huge personality and keen observations in early October of 2016, and after having OscarOn as a guest, decided we had to have him on as a co-host. MzBat first appeared as a guest, and her invaluable insights and analysis was a welcome addition as she agreed to be a co-host. Ajediday has been in our chat for every episode since day one, so we made him our chat moderator and meme connoisseur.
