 My take says that we should prioritize speakers based on their name
recognition. Sadly, known names within the US may not be known outside
the US. Of course, I would like to be a participant as well in this
podcast to bring more of an enterprise perspective as I suspect there
will be no others. If the podcasts reflect more diversity and aren't
just software vendors and consultants, it will help our community

I have a somewhat complex answer for you here:

1) Jeremiah Grossman is someone who although I might not agree with all
the times, is a rather respectful member of the AppSec community. He is
trying his best and I felt grateful that he participated in the podcast.

2) I want to make sure we invite a wide range of speakers to the podcast
series. This is a new industry and we all have a lot to learn - getting
different perspectives will be of service to the community, IMO.

3) I'm a fan of your blog, and I'd like to interview you someday for the
series. But really, how does trashing Jeremiah (or anyone, really) help
the cause? We have better ways to spend our valuable energy. I hope that
if we interview you, that we can find a way to approach this topic in a
positive light, even when we disagree with others.

It was awesome!  I listened to it a few weeks ago and was really
impressed with the whole podcast.  Arshan and Jeff were great, as

Just one question, though.  Who is Jeremiah Grossman?  He didn't really
seem qualified to answer any of your questions and couldn't really keep
up with the conversation.  I was kind of surprised that you interviewed
some no-namer who didn't know much about the subject matter.  Maybe you
can prep your guests more ahead of time?
