Linux Basement

Linux Basement

Linux Basement is an informational podcast about Linux, open source software, and technology. It offers pretty good coverage of the latest interesting news in the field of Linux and related areas.

Chad Wollenberg, billed as a Freedom Hater Extraordinare, is a good host with an engaging style. The recent show dedicated to Google was particularly interesting.

The video netcasts have particularly awful video quality, even when watched in 480p resolution the presenters look mighty blurred (maybe that is a good thing :)

The podcast is released under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported license.

  • Website: linuxbasement.com
  • Length: About 50 minutes
  • Audio format: Ogg Vorbis, MP3
  • Video format: 480p
  • First Edition: November 2007

The Command Line Podcast

The Command Line Podcast

The Command Line Podcast is a weekly podcast hosted by Thomas Gideon ('cmdln'), a professional programmer, self-described hacker, curmudgeon and hacktivist.

The podcast offers a mix of news casts, interviews, and rants. The podcasts place emphasis on anything that catches the host's attention, which is often hacking, security, and freedom. The podcast is not targeted at the Linux crowd, but many of the topics discussed will be of interest to most Linux geeks especially as the host offers powerful insights with real reasoned arguments.

Everyday Linux

Linux In The Shell

Everyday Linux is a weekly podcast which aims to make Linux comprehensible to computer enthusiasts. It aims to give breadth of knowledge, seeking to put life in the context of Linux. The podcast is unusual given that it is not really about Linux per se, but more about three guys who happen to use and enjoy Linux.

The presenters have released more than 100 podcasts. The podcast series had a somewhat ropey start, but the show has made steady progress. The presenters take a fairly relaxed and pragmatic approach to sensitive topics such as DRM looking more at the end results rather than adopting a philosophy merely on moral grounds.

There is good coverage of tech news in each podcast, and the listener feedback shows are particularly interesting with lots of candid comments from listeners aired. The podcasts do have a tendency to go off on too many tangents, and shows are unnecessarily long, stretching content a bit too thin. Nevertheless, the podcast offers good discussions of the joys and trials/tribulations of the presenters' adventures using Linux, pitched at an intermediate level.

  • Website: elementopie.com/everyday-linux-episodes
  • Length: about 95 minutes, although significant variations in length for episodes
  • Audio format: MP3 128kbps joint sterero (somewhere between mono and stereo)
  • First Edition: 15 April 2010

Full Circle Magazine

Full Circle Magazine Podcast

Full Circle is an independent magazine for the Ubuntu community. It focuses on product reviews, community news, how-to articles, programming and troubleshooting tips.

The publishers of the magazine also produce a regular podcast. It is a companion to the magazine. Each episode of the podcast covers a roundup of what the presenters have been doing, Ubuntu news, a round up of the latest issue of the magazine, interviews, events, reviews and feedback from listeners. A side-pod has recently been added, which is a short-form podcast which covers non-Ubuntu news, general tech stories and other topics that don't fit in the main podcast.

The podcast offers good variety, but the sound quality of the podcasts is really below par and detracts from the shows, with pops, blips, noise, and a low bitrate.

The presenters are predominately from the UK. Tony Hughes, one of the hosts, sounds reminiscent of Johnny Vegas, an English actor and comedian.

Linux In the Shell

Linux In The Shell

Linux in the Shell is an exploration of Linux commands in the bash shell, a command-line interpreter that offers a traditional user interface for Linux and other Unix-like operating systems.

There are both audio and video feeds for this podcast. The tutorials offer a write up of a specific command including lots of examples, an audio component about the write up, and a video component to demonstrate the usage of the command. The shows offer quite a lot of detailed information, far more than say the manual page for the respective Linux command. The shows will probably have limited appeal, it's not as if you can wait for a show to cover an essential command.

Linux In the Shell is released under the Creative Commons license: CC0 1.0 Universal with the podcasts hosted by Hacker Public Radio.

  • Website: www.linuxintheshell.org
  • Length: Typically under 20 minutes
  • Audio format: Ogg Vorbis, MP3, and Speex
  • Video format: Ogg Theora video
  • First Edition: 1 March 2012
