The guys discuss how a presidential candidate out of Texas is a member of the Cult of the Dead Cow, a hacktivist group started in 1990’s. They cover vishing attacks and how the government is trying to pass anti-robocall legislation. Finally they touch on pentesting in the gig economy.

As always they end with One Cool Thing.
