Network Security Podcast, Episode 70

Published by at 9:39 pm under Podcast

No need to listen to me ramble tonight, since I have an interview for you.  Okay, maybe I ramble a little, but I let Todd Feinman CEO of Identity Finder do most of the talking.   I’m posting a shortened version of the interview to Podtech if you just want the good stuff.  I’m looking forward to Black Hat and DefCon next week, especially since this is a great chance to meet people I’ve only talked to online.  I’ll have the NSP feedback phone with me at both events, so if you’re there, look me up. 

Let me know what you think of the new mic.  I’m still working out some of the kinks, like figuring out the correct compression.  The Heil PR-40 is a dynamic mic, while my old mic, an AT2020, is a condenser mic which is much more sensitive to background noises.   Let me know what you think, and if you really want to talk shop about mic’s, compression and limiters, contact me offline.

    You’re right, the new mike is an improvement, not huge but noticeable (I did an A/B comparison with last week’s podcast) even through the earbuds on the iPod.

    Killer podcast! Great interview. Your new mike is definitely “warmer” in the sense that it is low-mid band frequency heavy. This makes it sound very nice over iPod earbuds – much more “beefy”. The downside is that it is a bit muddy and boomy when I play it over my surround sound system. What you might want to try (although it’s hardly necessary) is to EQ and balance your raw audio using Audacity or SoundForge. Then you can boost whatever is too low, attenuate whatever is too hot and tweak the EQ on your callers’ scratchy Skype signals.

    It is a NPR-quality microphone. I can almost see you sitting in a booth with your oversized headphones on and sipping your organic soy latte in a ceramic mug made by the indigenous people of… wherever.

    Seriously though, I work as a government contractor, and for us, PII is an entirely different issue–it’s about why are you collecting this information in the first place. It’s interesting to me how different the scope is for individuals, businesses, and government.

    Nice cast, and really awesome to see you back :) (ok ok I am slow)

    You asked about the feeds, please do not put video into the same feed as the audio, for us bandwidth deprived South Africans it would be bad ;D.
