Who’s the best show here? Tech Show! Who’s the best show here? Tech Show! That’s the best one yet. Pizza pizza.

About the Show

The Linux Link Tech Show (TLLTS) is a weekly podcast show which covers the Linux operating system together with any other geeky topics that interest the hosts. TLLTS records and streams live every Wednesday night starting around 20:30 Eastern Time (01:30 or 00:30 GMT depending on Daylight Savings).

TLLTS has produced more than 750 shows, approaching 15 years. The grand-daddy of Linux podcasts, it’s still rocking!

Over the years, TLLTS has hosted interviews with key players in Linux, open source and free software. Here’s some name dropping of folk who have appeared on the show: Richard Stallman, Patrick Volkerding, Ian Murdock, Chris DiBona, Bruce Perens, Mark Shuttleworth, Nat Friedman, Ted Ts’o and Miguel de Icaza.

There are no show notes available on their website.

Although TLLTS is not an adult show, the show is not family-friendly as it contains profanity.

Verdict:The show adopts a laid-back style and mostly consists of general chit-chat. The shows are not really targeted at being information-heavy, but given the length of each show, there's still lots of good information here.
