Last Updated on July 6, 2021

Linux Action News Blurb

Weekly Linux news and analysis by Chris and Joe. The show every week we hope you’ll go to when you want to hear an informed discussion about what’s happening.

About the Show

Linux Action News is a weekly podcast published every Monday. They have a mission to concentrate on high quality coverage and discussion. It’s produced by Jupiter Broadcasting.

Linux Action News arose following the demise of the Linux Action Show, an outstanding podcast that ran for about 11 years.

The show notes are way too brief, with hyperlinks to topics featured in the show.

The shows are supported by advertising.

The show is recorded with proprietary software: REAPER – a full-featured digital audio workstation and MIDI sequencer software.
