Michael Santarcangelo and I are trying something new with the Security Roundtable; we’ll be recording every other week at 7:00 am Pacific on Saturday morning. This probably seems like an ungodly hour to some, but I really am up that early anyway. Just like the Network Security Podcast, we’ll be streaming the audio live at http://hak5radio.com:8000/srt.mp3.m3u. We also have an IRC channel setup so you can ask questions while we’re recording.
We sent out a tweet Friday night before the podcast in search of someone to join us on the podcast and it was answered by Marc Massar, Principal Solutions Architect at Venafi. Well, it was actually Venifi’s PR person answered the tweet, but we’re perfectly willing to talk to PR folks as long as it doesn’t turn into a sales pitch. And it turned out that Marc was a lot of fun to talk to. He must have gotten enough coffee before we started that morning.
We’re working hard on redesigning the flow of the Security Roundtable to make it easier to record, more engaging for the listener and be able to produce it more often. We’ll be inviting more people on, but have less people on at any one time. The five-person at a time roundtable was a lot of fun and interesting, but a nightmare to try to coordinate. By having a set time we record we’ll be forced to run with the show whether a guest show up or not. And we really want to make the listeners a bigger part of the show (IRC: ##SRT on irc.freenode.net). This week was an experiment, but we hope to make a number of additional changes and will be working on improving the SRT weekly. Let us know what you think and what you’d like to see from future podcasts.
The next SRT will be recorded on September 27th, 2008 at 7:00 a.m. PDT. Have coffee, will podcast.
