"When you have the ability to take a step back, you begin to think a little bit more philosophically about your journey. And it's not just incremental thinking. When it's incremental thinking it's about, 'what's next in my career.' But when you are able to take a step back, it's about... 'What impact do you want to leave behind? When I look back 10 years from now, will I be happy? Will I feel a sense of fulfillment?' I think that line of questioning really gives you the courage to be able to break away from an incremental way of looking at next steps."

In addition to creating cybersecurity videos, John is a researcher at Huntress, which he discussed in Rapid Fire Questions. Then, the crew played a fun new game, trying to identify if something was a rapper or malware. John stuck around for the news, where the team started by giving updates on some recent stories about Apple AirTags and Amazon Sidewalk. In other news, the guys discussed Microsoft's rebrand of Windows Virtual Desktop, the unveiling of MacOS Monterey at WWDC, the US treating ransomware like terrorism, and malware targeting Windows containers.
