We covered some fun topics ranging from Kerberos to FIDO to switching between being a developer and a PM and back again. Give it a listen.

In this month’s episode of the Windows Insider Podcast, Steve Syfuhs joins us from the Hybrid Identity group within Microsoft’s Cloud & AI org as we take a behind-the-scenes look at the login and authentication processes within Windows.

There's a bunch of other episodes that are fun to listen to as well here: https://insider.windows.com/en-us/podcasts
