PVC Security will soon go off to a farm in the country where it can play with other podcasts.

Edgar Rojas, Timothy DeBlock, Chris Madalena, Tracy Maleeff, and Paul R. Jorgensen very much enjoyed the time with you. They’re still around on various platforms, so don’t miss out.

You will be able to find the show archives by searching on archive.org or prjorgensen.com [coming soon]. Worst case, Tim or Paul has a local copy of the show you want. Ping either on the Twitter or other social media and they may be able to help, time permitting.

On behalf of the whole team, Thank You, The Listener, for letting us sing and talk and do our thing for 99 episodes.

Goodbye, Good Luck & Aww Man!

Dear Friends,

After ~99 episodes across 2.5 years, the PVC Security Podcast is going into maintenance mode. Look forward to the fond farewell post to my co-hosts.

You, The Listener & Dear Friend & Audience, energized us in the show. I know I speak on behalf of Ed, Tim, Chris, and Tracy when I say Thank You to all who subscribed, linked, tweeted, and otherwise participated in the PVC Security Podcast. Lurkers, we thank you as well.

I would be remiss if I did not thank the guests who joined us over the years. They brought so much to you, Dear Friends, in knowledge and experience and professionalism. We hope you enjoyed listening to them as such as we enjoyed talking with them.

Practically, nothing much changes other than the following:

  • pvcsec.com will go into read-only mode
  • existing PVCSec content will continue as is until demand drops below an as yet to set level
  • new stuff by Paul will come out on his prjorgensen.com masthead
    • If you already subscribe to PVCSec’s RSS feeds, you will get Paul’s stuff soon
  • If you are not subscribed to [[http://www.timothydeblock.com/eis/][Exploring Information Security — Timothy De Block]], you need subscribe now

Thank You, all, for your support and participation and listening and everything.


An Update

Dear Friends,

Ed, Paul & Tracy have a heck of a time coordinating calendars to get a show recorded. It is an unfortunate consequence of their success.

And so we are in the current situation – the team is weeks behind in getting a new show on the books.

Several ideas were floated to address the gap: going twice or once a month; changing the session schedule; making the shows shorter.

We are looking at these and other ideas, like: a more of a host-lead show with segments; more contributors; narrowing focus.

You will see and hear some experimentation of these ideas.

Your input is welcome.

BTW, we are still looking for engineering & production help. Interested parties reached out to our Help Wanted post. We haven’t forgotten them or you. We are this far behind where we need to be.

Let us know your thoughts at comments@pvcsec.com.

Pardon Our Dust: iTunes Edition

Dear Friends,

There has been what we on the PVCSec team like to call “jankiness” (technical term) with the feed since November/December. For some the feed worked fine. For others, episodes would not magically appear. Sometimes even moving to a different podcatcher might introduce or solve the issue.

I (Paul) am playing with WordPress, Libsyn (our content distribution provider), and iTunes. I think I found and applied the fix.

In 24 hours we will know if I am successful.

Stay Tuned!
