Excellent Linux central show from a host(s) that really care.

I was introduced to Noah on a different Linux podcast and when he left, I went looking. I was happy to find he had his own podcast in the Ask Noah Show. It’s just fantastic. He and Steve host an always interesting and always helpful show. They host it with patience as well, which is really amazing. I’ve never heard them make anyone feel bad for not knowing something. They are the epitome of what the FLOSS community should be. Thanks guys! 🙏🏼

Great show, call in tech support eh

Love the show, topics, and Noah’s enthusiasm but my biggest gripe is the call in tech support calls. I mean it’s nice to have a tech support help line but I feel it really detracts from the show. It tends to interrupt the topics at hand and cuts the show short since it’s restricted to one hour because it’s a live radio show.

I’d love a Ask Noah Show Offline Edition where we can delve into the topics at hand.

Not boring, deep insight

Love the show, every topic touches on things that are very relevant to me and my future setup.
