About Episode

Contrary to what it feels like today, there was actually a time before the Internet. With beginnings in the 1960s, users truly began to recognize the Internet for its communication benefits in the 1970s, when email was invented. However, with advances in the Internet came advances in malicious technology.

The first virus was released in the 1980s. A virus, in laymen’s terms, is a self-replicating program that can cause damage to the data and files stored on a computer. Where these viruses were initially meant to be crimes more comparable with vandalism, hackers are now enacting large-scale cybercrime capable of taking down governments.

In fact, cybercrime evolves as society changes. Due to the coronavirus outbreak, for example, phishing email schemes have risen, with malicious actors posing as staff members from the World Health Organization in order to gain access to the people whose files they are trying to manipulate. Attacks like this rose more than 350% last year alone.

That’s where Chase Norlin from Transmosis comes in. Not only does he work in the cybersecurity industry himself, but he is known for developing others to assist in this mission in his field.

Even if you yourself don’t drink coffee, the odds are pretty good that virtually everyone around you does. In 2015 alone, we spent over 74 billion dollars on coffee here in the US alone. Imagine what the numbers are like for the industry on a global scale!

We like our coffee, is all we’re saying.

It would almost seem as though the world does not need more coffee shops, but that is not the case. One of the most interesting things to emerge in the past decade is the idea that any kind of retail shop be opened with a specific purpose in mind. The story behind our favorite local haunts has become almost as important to us as what we buy itself, including our favorite magical bean. We can basically pick and choose retailers that reflect our own personalities and beliefs.

To that end, if you’ve ever wanted to learn more about coffee shops opened by and for U.S. military veterans, you’re going to love who we’re talking about within this episode!
