Hi Erich

Couldn't help not noticing that openSUSE has no official podcast while other large distros are rolling out with official podcasts (Red Hat, Ubuntu and now Fedora) and in a thread on Twitter Richard Brown was kind enough and pointed me towards your direction. I understand that you are busy, but kinda hopping that you are maybe less busy nowadays ::) Would like to know if you could use any help to put some speed on this project? Not so much of a "podcaster" myself, but would be more than happy to help out with technicalities for example.

Thanks for the list, Doug! This will come in handy.

Today's update:

Unfortunately, due to illness (stomach flu) along with a heavy workload
at my regular job right now, I'm not going to be able to meet my self-
imposed deadline.

That said, maybe having an openSUSE podcast would be a great way to
start off the new year in January. Either way, things are progressing
nicely with my setup. Being an audio engineer, I want it to be as
professional sounding as possible, and I'm inching toward that goal

Anyhow, there's my update. The project is not dead, just needs to be
taken a little slower for health and work reasons.

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to give a progress update and some goals I have in
mind for
getting this started.

First, it's going to be an audio-only podcast, though I may just
livestream it
on Twitch or something, and perhaps have an official chatroom
whether that be my
personal channel on Twitch or a special one I could make on

Second, my goal for the first episode is the first week in
December. Not exactly
a lofty goal because, in the past week, I have been prepping my
machine to be
a podcast recording studio, complete with open source tools such as
Ardour, Calf, and more. This might even be the topic for the first
turning your openSUSE install into a podcast studio. Before that, I
hope to
launch a pilot episode for you all to hear, just as an
example.  Everything is
set to go (even theme music), with a few exceptions.

So, the one thing I need is a name for it. "openSUSE Podcast" seems
obvious, but if anyone has any creative suggestions in mind, I'm
all ears.

I also welcome input for topic and interview suggestions.

That's what I've got for now. Stay tuned, and your input is
welcome.  :)

Hi Doug,

Storyboarding isn’t really what is generally needed in a
podcast. However,
as with any podcast, it requires content gathering, booking
guests, and
coming up with general topics. Here’s kind of what I envision:

This podcast would be a Linux podcast with an (open)SUSE-first
Meaning, it would cover all topics in Linux news in general,
but the
headline would always be something from openSUSE and/or SUSE.
It would be
weekly or semi-weekly, depending on overall time to commit.

I envision the following segment format:
- Intro, including “what have you been up to?” for the hosts to
- News from around the Linux community with discussion, with
openSUSE and
SUSE news first and headlining. - Main topic or interview,
centered around (open)SUSE
- Emails & Feedback

That’s what I’ve come up with so far. As far as a launch date,
it all
depends on what we come up with here.

Hi Erich,
I think this sounds like a great idea. Did you need any help
boarding or anything of the nature. Let me know. I will help
out where I
can. v/r

Hello all,
I just did a Google search looking for a potential openSUSE
and came across an old thread on this list with various
interested in starting one up. Unfortunately, nothing ever
came from
that, with the exception of, at the beginning of this year,
Lunduke had started SUSE Open Audio… which never, as far as
I can see,
got past two episodes. Not sure what the reasons for that,
but from
what I know of Bryan is he is a very busy man.
I’ve been looking for a Linux project to get involved in
lately. My
first attempt has been to revive Edubuntu, the education
flavor of
Ubuntu. Unfortunately, I have received no response from my
contacts at
Ubuntu/Canonical (I helped in the early days of getting
Ubuntu MATE
started), and it seems as if the project is being
stonewalled in an
effort to let it be discontinued. My reason for this was
because my
son just entered Kindergarten and I wanted to be able to
provide him
with an operating system tailored to his needs. He has
shown an
interest in Linux and has a plush Geeko he regularly
cuddles with
(which should have been my first indication to go with
openSUSE). I
intend to set him up with the openSUSE Li-FE project when I
can get a
small computer (read: Netbook or the like) for him.
That said, with my media production background, podcasts or
of the like seem to be projects within my wheelhouse. I’m a
producer with Jupiter Broadcasting and even appeared in an
episode or
two of the Linux Action Show, long after Bryan left, and I
used to
regularly contribute to Linux Unplugged. After taking a
couple years
off, I’ve been a part of the Linux Unplugged “Virtual LUG”
when time
has allowed. My day job is as a production director (video
audio engineer, and lighting tech rolled into one) at a
church in
Seattle. I could go on and even drop a few names, but that
might not
be relevant at this time.
I would not be opposed to leading the efforts to revive a
podcast for
openSUSE, or even being a host. I know there are tons of
people within
the community who would make excellent hosts, contributors,
cohosts. Two seems to be a magic number many podcasts use
for number
of hosts, but I’ve also seen large successes with three
hosts. Single
host podcasts tend to get boring as there’s no color or
to bounce around.
Anyhow, if this seems like a good idea, then let me know.
It sure
would be “a lot of fun.”
