Great Podcast about Open Source Projects

The variety of projects that are interviewed on the podcast is great. Every so often there is a dud. But definitely a podcast that gives the listener an excellent idea of the many open source projects out there.

Audio Quality

Tried this show again since I haven’t listened in a few years. The audio is terrible. I couldn’t continue listening with the static.

Labor of love that is starting to be more labor than love.

I have listened to FLOSS Weekly since episode 1 and have always enjoyed hearing about the wide variety of open source projects that I wouldn’t have been exposed to otherwise. The sound levels are always good and the voice quality is as good as Skype can provide. However, here has been a steady decline in the quality of the show in 2019 but I still tune in as it is still in my weekly “Must Listen” list, although I don’t know if that will hold true by the end of 2019. I understand that the logistics of booking guests and cohosts can be difficult, but I hope Randal will rekindle his enthusiasm and right the ship. Recently there was a show that featured a guest that wasn’t even talking about an open source project. I think we have finally got through every blockchain project out there and if that is your thing, not mine, go and check the past episodes. The entire back catalogue is a good resource to learn more about projects that can meet a need you are having or would like to explore.
