Obviously there are no prizes for guessing the inspiration for this new podcast.
Viewed in isolation I am quite happy to give this new podcast a listen and, as a means of getting its existence publicised, HPR is probably a valid medium. The fact that we are discussing it now proves that the principle works. All the same, I think the correct method would be to use an HPR show as a "container", with introductory content by the producers in addition to the podcast itself. I seem to recall at least one precedent for this approach. I would not object to HPR being used in this way for "first editions" of new tech-related podcasts. However if the same approach is attempted for future episodes then I think it should be resisted, otherwise HPR will run the risk of becoming hijacked as a distribution medium.

I'm writting to you today, because I am concerned by episode 3009. This seems to me like a clear case of "syndication" : first the title, "Linux Inlaws S01 E01", and then the fact that there is no mention of HPR at all in the show. I had a discution with Ken about this, and I understand there are circumstances to kind of justify the presence of this show on HPR, but I am concerned that this kind of episode don't really belong - at least in this form - here. With another title, and an a proper acknoledgment on the recording, I would be fine. I am curious to know what the rest of the community thinks, as I'm pretty sure I cannot be the only one to feel this way. Cheers ! Yannick.
