A podcast about open source: FLOSS Weekly

I listen to a lot of podcasts, usually when during my runs or while I'm driving.  One of the podcasts I've been listening to over the past few years is This Week in Tech (TWiT), hosted by Leo Laporte.

Well, he's got a network of podcasts on the TWiT Network and I recently found a new one that I think is pretty good: FLOSS (Free Libre Open Source Software).  It's a weekly show in an interview format; each episode is about a different open source topic or person.

Recently, FLOSS interviewed Sun's own Glynn Foster to discuss OpenSolaris.  Not a bad introduction to OpenSolaris if you haven't checked it out yet.

Another Sun-related FLOSS Weekly is the ZFS podcast.

I also enjoyed the interview with Jono Bacon of Canonical; it looks like there are plenty of other FLOSS episodes worth a listen.

Absolutely, Randal. It's a nice podcast: informative first, good questions from you guys to the guests, and still manages to have some fun in there. I'm going to listen to more "back-issues" of the 'cast.

I've pretty much stopped listening to the main TWiT podcast, unfortunately: the signal-to-noise ratio has dropped too much to be worth the time anymore. Seems like there's not as much information content as there was, say, 2 years ago. I wonder if Leo is feeling the stress of having to produce so much content? He's so good; FLOSS is evidence of how good his stuff can be.
