This Week In Debian - Podcast

Are you interested in advertising some area of the Debian community and ready to talk about it in a podcast episode?
Then add your name below!


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.

People available for help

Are you interested in helping? If so, please add your name below and give a summary of how you'd like to help.

  1. I don't have a topic, but would be interested in contributing as an interviewer or panelist. I Suggested starting a Debian podcast on identi.ca in June, but the co-host I asked unfortunately declined. I would suggest that weekly is a bit too frequent, but I may be surprised. --- RyanBaroletFogarty

  2. Happy to help here too, though I also have a touch of skepticism that we can sustain this over the long term. I think our current DPL is very accessible, which is a good thing, but hopefully we can interview others as well. --- JeremiahFoster
