I'm grateful for you, it's a nice podcast. Writing such assignments is a true struggle for me. Furthermore, I believe that everyone will eventually run into difficulties finishing their homework. As a result, in this situation, having a trustworthy provider that can assist is necessary https://us.masterpapers.com/ I came into this source and continue to use it. It aids in timely and effective preparation, even for the most challenging assignments.

these Career Notes episodes are absolutely awful and the people presented have little merit and aren't interesting. Other than these, great podcast.

Re: Ransom DDoS episode... not only did that dude mispronounce technology names (indicating lack of technical knowledge), he used the phrase “or their [law enforcement counterparts] in other civilized countries”. In saying this, he effectively implies that hackers who write in broken English are savages from uncivilized countries. The implicit racial connotations in making a statement like that are seriously offensive (equating being ‘civilized’ with speaking English well). Really surprising and disappointing.
