This week, Charlie gives an insight into some of his podcast recommendations and discusses what topics are covered and where you can listen to them yourself.
I thought for the bulletin this week, I would share a few of my favourite learning podcasts. Podcasts are always great for long car journeys or commutes. You make use of what could be dead time driving your car, by doing a little learning at the same time. Sometimes, they are a lot less work than reading a book, especially if the content is quite complex!
|Name||Location||What Is It?|
|The Lazarus Heist (Series 1 & 2)||BBC Sounds||Brilliant podcast on the Lazarus hacker group from North Korea – a great insight into a number of contemporary cyber events. I would highly recommend it.|
|When It Hits the Fan||BBC Sounds||Comments on contemporary news stories and how the organisations are managing the crisis.|
|Powerplay: The House of Sepp Blatter||BBC Sounds||Perhaps on the edge of crisis management, but a fascinating look into the inside of football politics.|
|The Grenfell Tower Inquiry Podcast||BBC Sounds||There are 203 episodes available, so one for a very long car journey. I listened to some of the witness statements of those who survived. Again, a fantastic insight into some of the issues of Grenfell and the incompetence and buck-passing of the organisations which were involved in the construction.|
|The Hack that Changed the World||BBC Sounds||A cyber podcast but an excellent story on who was behind the 2009 hack and leak of emails that fuelled climate change sceptics. There was a thought that if this hack didn’t happen, then we would have started working on climate change issues 10 years earlier than we did.|
|The Reunion – The Lockerbie Bombing||BBC Sounds||Good podcast to learn about this disaster and the issues associated with it.|
|Invincible Brand||Apple Podcasts||Melissa Agnes’ series of podcasts on crisis management. She wrote a good selling book on crisis management a while ago. Now a little out of date, but there is some good stuff to be listened to and some sage advice.|
|Immersive Labs – Webinars||Immersive Labs||Two or three years ago they did a fantastic series of podcasts with three of their guys discussing the latest cyber incidents. They don’t seem to do the same style of podcasts now, but have a look at their webinars. Although, to me, they may be a little sales-orientated.|
|Darknet Diaries – 8 June – Deviant||Darknet Diaries||This episode is excellent on how physical penetration testers go about trying to get into your building.|
|Darknet Diaries – 4 July – The D.R Incident||Darknet Diaries||An interesting tale of a response to a major cyber incident.|
