HPR3212: A Pi Model 3B as your daily driver? You must be joking.
My Dell laptop had to go away to have a new cooling fan fitted. I've got 3 other laptops to call upon, but instead I decided to conduct an experiment I've theorised about for ages. Could a Raspberry Pi 3B serve as my daily driver?
This idea goes back some way and since then, of course, the much more powerful model 4 has been released. However, there must be thousands of 3Bs out there doing nothing, so perhaps they could have a new lease of life providing basic browsing and internet capabilities to people who might otherwise not be in a position to buy a computer.

This is real Open Source
With a different host every day, you get people's once every few month bit of tech awesomeness every day, not oh no we have to do a show, let's throw something together. Great job on this show community. Way to go open source podcasting.
Hit or Miss, but worth subscribing to
This is a community based radio show, so anyone can make their own podcast for HPR. This results in variable quality, with shows that cover a topic well, to shows that are uninformative or banal, like "What's in my bag today". Since the topics covered are so broad, some of them will not be relevant to you. I personally don't care much for the libre office podcasts, but a libre office user would find them helpful. Still, I enjoyed and learned from many of the shows featured here.
Lots of great info ☎
The only problem I have with this podcast is I feel that I should have a notepad ready when I listen to it.
