We are an open Podcast/Lug that meets at 9:00 PM Eastern Standard Time every first and third Friday of the month using Mumble.

About the Show

The shows are also streamed live. Topics covered in the show are fairly broad.

LinuxLugCast has about 500 subscribers to the show.

There are fairly detailed show notes on their web site (follow the Podcast link on the site’s home page — see below). Unfortunately, the show and website are plagued by technical problems.

Verdict:This podcast is pretty difficult to recommend. There's plenty of Linux coverage in each show, but shows are interminably long. They lumber along but most podcast players let you speed up playback. What is out of your hands is the particularly ropey audio quality. We're sorry to be harsh about the show!
