Hacking Culture is a show that explores the art and science of hacking, with a focus on Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (FLOSS). Hosted by public radio veteran Dr. Matthew Tift, the show features people and organizations that engage in the practice of hacking, defend software freedom, or seek to understand the practice of hacking. It explores how the free software movement promotes democracy.
Many people have no idea about the alternatives to proprietary software, so this show seeks to make the free software movement as accessible and appealing to as broad an audience as possible, overthrow misconceptions regarding the practice of hacking, and suggest how free software could better serve society.

The Imaginary Band of Drupal Rock Stars at Lullabot
Matthew Tift talks with James Sansbury and Matt Westgate about the history of Lullabot, building a team of Drupal experts, and moving away from the phrase "rock star." Ideas about "rock stars" can prevent people from applying to job postings, cause existing team members to feel inadequate, or encourage an attitude that doesn't work well in a client services setting. Rather than criticize past uses of this phrase, we talk about the effects of this phrase on behavior.
