Showing how easy it really is to take back control of your data from the tech giants and stop being a product for them to sell to advertisers.

In this podcast we will explore the many ways to set up and host your own server whether it's in your home or on a remote VPS. How to back up and sync your data, run your own email, chat, VOIP, website, social media, etc. All with ethical, free and open source software.

This is not a "technical" podcast. I am an average, everyday dude that has no coding skills. I explain and talk in a normal way that isnt over your head with tech jargon.

    I was surprised that Googles invidual apps trackers were quite low. But collectivly they are huge. Pilot and Loves had no trackers just blew my mind. But Trucker Path, one of the most popular trucking apps around has **32** trackers and **20** permissions! WHY??? I am recommending all of my trucker friends to uninstall this app **immeadiatly!!** Even iHeartRadio, an app I use daily has as many trackers as it has permissions! Absolutely astounding and its no wonder my battery dies so quickly

    I also recommend you go do through his email course on how to clean your digital footprint in 5 days. It's well worth it and day 5 surprised the hell out of me and may end up taking me full week to go through because I didnt know there was that many companies sucking up my data. I've only been paying attention to this stuff for 6 months but there are years and years of my stuff on line.

    Special thank you to Nachbarscaft for the proof that it works. I had thought of this before but didnt try it because I thought it wouldnt work but I am wrong and it does work!


    I'm now on Socialhome and absolutly love it! @unklebonehead@socialhome.netwrok More on Socialhome to come.

    My ultimate goal is to move boneheadmedia to Socialhome and make it my personal site such as Jason Robinsonhas done. He is one of the devs of Socialhome and has made it look just like a website.

    -Funkwhale podcast update. I've seen some wireframes that have been dont up to show what its going to look like and they are beautiful! I cant wait to make my podcasts all available on the Fediverse! I'm excited as hell!

    Fediverse Party 2019 review

    Some interesting Numbers

    1000 new servers online

    -1.8 million newcommers


    Top 5 servers growth was Pleroms, Mastodon, WriteFreely, Pixelfed and PeerTube.

    Misskey, Plume and Funkwhale grew as well

    13 new networks expressed a wish to become part of Fediverse!

    But the big problem still remains. People are still flocking to big servers and not enough small ones. Reminder that the idea of decntralized is everybody hosts their own. Which I understand is not feaseable for most people.


    Socialhome
    Socialhome is best described as a #federated personal profile with social networking functionality. Users can create rich content using #Markdown. All content can be pinned to the user profile and all content will federate to contacts in the federated social web. Federation happens using the #ActivityPub and #Diaspora protocols.

    Ep21 Azuracast, IPFS and Data Detox Kit

    Its a new year and now is the perfect time for you to make the commitment to protecting yourself, your privacy and your data. How? By self hosting of course! Self hosted radio station, websites and files and detoxing your data all right here, right now on The Self Hosted Podcast!

    Over the last 20 episodes I've focussed primarily on apps that can be installed and used through Yunohost. I've also tried to learn how to install apps on my Yunohost server but that was a complete bust. I just aint smart enough. But I did get one installed without using Yunohost and it actually works! If your one of the lucky ones (friends and family) you might be listening to this being recorded live or a replay on it right now. It's called Azuracast and I am excited as hell to have it installe and running. More on that later but first lets get to the news!

    TSHP-20.5 Merry Christmas

    You can watch LIVE me on DLive!
    Download a higher quaility mp3 here!

    This is not a normal episode!

    This is a replay of my last Christmas show. It originaly aired both in the feed for The Unkle Bonehead Show and on UBSN.net. My first radio station that was all me. In it you will here me reference. Linux for the rest of us training videos. They are still available but pretty dated since this was recorded 2011-12-24.

    I also referenced that I was making a distro that was specificly for streaming audio to an internet radio station. Dont look for it because it never came to frutition. I had only been using Linux for about 9 months at this point. And as with most noobs who find Linux I wanted to do everything right then not thinking of how hard it is to do without knowing the tech and just how practical the final distro would be. Lol.

    Some of these songs, while not performed by Creative Commons artists were released originally on a Christmas album back in the early to mid 90's and was then released on The Podsafe Music Network (Meevio) back in 2008 by the record label. It of course had many more artists than I played on this episode but suffice it to say it was all hair bands. I am making it available in this feed just as a bonus episode. If you are listening to it through one of the phone apps and want a high quaility audio version you can download it either from Archive.org or get it on NTROradio.com. I also referenced Google+ what a joke that was, lol.

    Merry Chrismas!
    Voice overs for The Unkle Bonehead Show was provided by several different people of the years but in this episode it was Wayne Henderson. Who still does it at Media Voice Overs He is very reasonable and has an absolutely awesome voice. I strongly reccommend him for anything you need for voiceovers.
