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!
You can also suggests others for interviews.
Remember that people outside the Debian community might have hard time figuring out how to contact a Debian IRC nickname or even full name. So please add links or other contact information that enable the pocast editors to get in touch with potential speakers.
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. Thanks to shared effort by Frostbite and Debian, the podcast is now up and running! To keep the podcast running, we always need to plan (and record) ahead a few episodes, to ensure the sustainability of the podcast.

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
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
Well, it would be nice to have the podcasts translated to other languages. I could do it into Spanish (I know very good both Latin-American Castilian (native) and Spanish Castilian). --- AlejandroMatos
Another one that may help on the spanish version of the podcast --- AntonioMaldonado
