Taking Apart URL Shorteners, (Thu, Aug 25th)

Ever get a “shortened” url (bit.ly, tinyurl.com or whatever) and stress about “clicking that link”?  Or worse yet, have that “Oh No” moment after you just clicked it?  Or possibly tripped over such a link during IR and have to investigate it?  Is there a way to look at the link contents without a sandbox with a packet sniffer (or fiddler or burp or similar)?
