Background

The Frostbite Systems company sells computer hardware pre-installed with GNU/Linux distributions, including Debian of course.

For both promotion and as a service to communities, they are also producing podcasts about FOSS communities. As an example, check out the This Week In Fedora podcast.

FrostbiteMedia has contacted Debian to check whether the project is interested in starting a This Week In Debian podcast. To evaluate whether we want to start it or not, we need to plan (and record) ahead a few episodes, to check for the sustainability of the podcast.
