Linux Podcasts That Slipped Through The Net - Page 2

Linux Podcasts That Slipped Through The Net - Page 2

by Dan Petersen



Frostcast is a podcast which interviews project leaders of free and open source software along with Linux operating systems.

Recent shows have featured interviews with Matthias Kirschner, the Fellowship Coordinator and the Coordinator from the Free Software Foundation Europe, Micah Lee, a staff technologist for the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the project maintainer of HTTPS Everywhere, and Jonathan Nadeau who talked about the accessible Computing Foundation.

The interviews are fairly in-depth and have some useful insights. The podcast had a hiatus from November 2012 until June 2013, but seems to be back to regular shows.

Open Source Musician Podcast

Open Source Musician Podcast

Open Source Musician Podcast is a guide to open source for musicians. It discusses the use of Linux and other open-source software in the creation of music.

The show is hosted by Spencer Jackson. The podcast covers the use of free libre and open source software for musicians. The show covers topics like software, gear, audio releases and recording. There have also been a few interviews with people from the Linux audio community.

The Open Source Musician Podcast was started in March 2008 by Daniel Worth in response to wanting a podcast similar to "Inside Home Recording" but using free and open source tools.

The host, Spencer, goes through the Linux Audio Announce lists. Even Spencer concedes it sounds a bit of a monologue, and he is not in a position to offer opinions on a lot of the software that is mentioned. There are some user contributed music compositions which does help to liven up the show.

Distrowatch Weekly Podcast

Distrowatch Weekly Podcast

The Distrowatch Weekly Podcast is a bi-weekly Linux podcast., a fascinating Linux distribution news and information site, publishes a weekly news and commentary section. A Guest Host reads DistroWatch content, and adds a little of their own.

Frankly, the show is currently pretty mundane and dry. Whilst there is good material and reviews here, and the latest news summary is informative, the monotonity of the presentation just sends the listener to snoozeville. The show really needs something to liven it up. A missed opportunity from what is an excellent website and resource.

Sunday Morning Linux Review is a Linux podcast hosted by Tony Bemus, Mat Enders and Mary Tomich. The podcast is not suitable for young families, as it contains profanity.

The hosts start the show talking about what they have been up to during the past week. Mat then provides an update on kernel news, before the hosts chat about the latest Linux distro news, which is explored in some detail. A lot of shows include a distro review. There is also tech news, listener feedback, with the show closing with outtro music.
