Memories....Phrack, 2600 meetups, and the Off the Hook weekly WNYC radio program, BBSes like Stronghold East and Metalshop. Blue boxing, red boxing. Alliance teleconferencing with LoD and MoD. Have I said too much or not enough?
Off The Hook was the first "podcast" I ever heard. My parents wouldn't pay for internet access at the time, so I had to go through a BBS that offered users free internet. It was called "Genesis" (located somewhere in Massachusetts) and it was just a Unix command line to access the BBS's offerings, like ftp. Good times.
