I used to listen to some really good forensics podcasts. Forensic4Cast , CyberSpeak, etc... They haven't had any new episodes in a while. What are some good, and current, forensic podcasts that you gentlemen listen to?

I used to listen to the CyberSpeak podcast...but since there haven't been any updates, there really hasn't been much of a forensic or DFIR nature.

I think one of the issues is that such things take a great deal of work.

I used to listen to CyberSpeak too and miss it now that there's not really any new recordings being released. Although, as Harlan stated, putting together a recording is a lot of work (at least I would imagine so). Looking back at the frequency at which the podcasts were released a couple of years ago, it's remarkable that the guys were able to consistently roll out new episodes as often as they did.

If you've never listened to them, it's still worth going back and downloading a few - there's some great interviews with very useful information on many of them.

Creating podcasts is sort of the high end of contributing for a community that doesn't really go to great lengths to share that much at all amongst it's members...

I suspect it almost certainly is a time issue, as suggested. My own experience of putting together content of this nature is that the amount of time spent preparing, recording, editing, publishing, promoting etc. is vast. I know I'm more of a tortoise than a hare (in so many ways) but it wouldn't surprise me if the time taken to put together a 1 hour podcast - *assuming you care about quality* - can be 10 times the length of the final product, possibly more.

It takes a lot of time and effort to do podcasts. When I was doing TalkForensics on BlogTalkRadio, producing a show, even though we did them live and did not do post editing could still take up to 20 hours per show.

Why so much?

First, you have to find and vet speakers.
Then you have to do a call with them to discuss the show.
Then provide them with a list of anticipated questions.
Manage the show platform.
Promote the show or podcast.
Do the show.

All of that takes someone's time, and quite frankly, this is time that can be used to build your business, handle cases and other work that has to be done in the normal course of business.

I would love to fire up TalkForensics again, but it is just too much of a time requirement that is a service to the community, but does not drive business.

So if you are wondering why people are not doing shows or updating new podcasts, those are probably the reasons as noted above.

Maybe all the guys that used to do the shows could combine and do one podcast between them.

The TalkCyberCrimeSpeakCoreForensics101[4]cast

I've gone back and listened to old episodes because of the amazing content between the shows. Even just having people talk about blogposts that theyve written might be useful, without naming specific blogs, there's just a tonne of information coming out of people that might be good in an audio discussion format. but yes, the time it would take in amongst the work that people do seems like it's quite onerous.
