About the show

After years of producing Linux, BSD and Other Open Source Podcasts, I came to the realization that we almost always focus on the technology. It makes sense, we all love tech, that's why we are who we are. But the community we are apart of is full of varied and fascinating people that make that tech. This is my attempt to highlight the people who are helping dream up and build the future around us.
