To us, RallySecurity means being active in rallying our community members and helping them 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 within 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 October of 2016 wanting to do a couple things. We saw the Twitch as an interesting platform for creating content. 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.
Your contribution with Patreon allows us to keep things going. Patreon contributions are a per-month basis. If you've never used Patreon before, check this out for more information.
You want to know where your schmeckles are goingSo you're thinking about throwing a couple schmeckles our way. That's cool, but I'd want to know too before I tossed my precious few schmeckles into someone else's hat.
First, know that we really appreciate your support. Like, really appreciate it. Your support makes RallySecurity possible.
Second, it means we can do this without having to sellout to corporations, change our format and content to be more corporate friendly, and shill products that none of us really care about because we know its humans that make security work, not products.
Here's the breakdown of our costs:
Ben and Tony 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; The Tweets every Tuesday are his handiwork, and we've made him our chat moderator and meme connoisseur.
