One of the best podcasts ever!

An excellent podcast! Too bad it is so infrequent. However, it is still invaluable and I eagerly anticipate every new episode.

BSD talk is about the continuing UNIX tradition

BSD Talk is essentially a continuing series of interviews with users, admins, developers and enthusiasts of the BSD Unix operating system. It is a way to hear about the operating system and the apps and utilities that go with it straight from the people who write, install, maintain and/or use these systems. BSD is about the freedom to create, and BSD Talk is about the people creating quality code. Thanks to Will for doing this, and thanks to all those who take the time to talk to him and the listeners.
