Comments Off on An Information Security Place Podcast – Episode 02-2011


We have a little bit of innuendo humor on this episode, and we all break into some hysterics (it’s all in the geek toys section, so fast forward if you want to hear all that). Around that is some information and opinion on InfoSec stuff. We figured we would throw that in there because of the name of the podcast, but whatever…
