I have been listening to Ask Noah show. I heard Matt Hartley talk about this on the Lunduke Hour. Noah Chelliah owns his own business using FOSS in enterprise. He seems passionate about it. The show takes callers and he does try to assist them either right then or will get information to assist them later. Seems like a very nice man.
Certainly podcasts seem to compete against each other sometimes - but one of the website\s that is fairly nice (although it runs on node) is a decent bunch.
Clearly Bad Voltage is the only podcast worth listening to and has the finest community behind it
I’m kidding, I love BV and I hope you do too. If you have any problems let us know either via the forum or by email. I’m not promising to fix everything but if there are any issues I’m sure we would like to know about them.
That said I would like to hear of any recommendations anybody has I’m a big fan of The Lunduke Hour personally,
There are a bunch of geek pop culture podcasts on The Incomparable network. Some of these include:
- The Incomparable - A weekly dive into geeky media we love, including movies, books, TV, comics, and more.
- Random Trek - Scott McNulty discusses a randomly selected episode of “Star Trek” — all series, all seasons — with a non-random guest.
- Unjustly Maligned - A pop culture show about the sometimes strange things we love, that other people… don’t.
- Total Party Kill - A podcast in which a bunch of friends play Dungeons and Dragons on the Internet for your amusement.
There is also the trek.fm network, if you are so inclined. They have shows on all of the live action shows (TOS, TAS, TNG, DS9, Voy, Ent, Dis), as well as topical shows like Continuing Mission, which follows independent productions, HyperChannel, a news show, and shows from other networks, like Mission Log, from the Roddenberry podcast network, which examines each episode of Star Trek looking for messages, morals, and meanings and whether the episode holds up. (They have been going for a little over 5 years, and so far, have done all of TOS, TAS, the original cast movies, and are in season 7 of TNG.)
Loved The West Wing, and it’s about time I watched it again. Subscribed!
Thanks for sharing.

- Waking Up Podcast, surprised nobody mentioned this, covers many interesting topics, although I’m not so interested in the US-centric political stuff.
- Wired Podcast - general mainstream tech news (nice to hear first hand from journalists that write about topics in-depth)
- The Z List Dead List - about obscure people in history, real mixed bag, some very interesting though.

I’ve been really enjoying Darknet Diaries recently - the guy knows how to tell a story. (Declaration of interest: I was interviewed for his piece on Diginotar, Episode 3, which is how i found out about it.)
I’m going to drop a whole podcast network here. Think Jupiter broadcasting…but the alliance format is where the similarities end. It is very much “New Age woo woo” focused and most likely not something many of you would seek out on your own. Why am I posting it here? Because having an interest in this stuff is exactly why I also have an interest in Free software. Altruism, truly, altruism. Nope, not your typical narrative for coming to FOSS in this millennium (and believe me I’ve had the “I exist!” argument more times than I care to remember) but applying kneejerk narratives for motivations to persons based on past experiences and stereotypes of others is how I think technology is harming culture and the first step to protecting against that is giving culture (the users) an active say in the evolution of technology.
So…if you’ve run out of things to listen to, just want a change of pace, or are simply curious; Make a nice cup of tea and enjoy a free preview show
I’ve been looking for a WordPress-podcast for a while. Any suggestions? Funny and smart with a bit of news and discussions
