Podcast interviews with Simon (Sun) and Tim (Chaos Radio)

Monday, March 5th, 2007

I was at FOSDEM recently and bumped into Simon Phipps from Sun Microsystems.  The last time we spoke was at LUG Radio Live so there was a lot of catching up to do.  

Simon has beaten me into the podcasting world with his new LiveMink show.  He interviewed me about the Freedom Task Force and I’m pretty happy with the result.  We recorded the show sitting on a stairwell in a dusty hallway about four metres from the action-packed FOSDEM hallway and yet (astonishingly) the sound quality is fine.  Kudos to Simon and his nifty microphone.

This was the second podcast I had participated in over the last couple of weeks.  When Tim Pritlove of Chaos Radio was in Zurich we had a chance to record together.  It was the first time I had the opportunity to speak properly with Tim and I have to say I was impressed with how he organises his show.  It was a genuine pleasure to chat.

Ah!  Now, when will I get my own podcast?
