Update: Introducing… The Software Freedom Law Show

Hey Folks, Just a quick update to let you all know about my latest project. It’s a brand new podcast from the fine people at The Software Freedom Law Center in New York and they’ve asked me to come on board as producer. Of course I said yes immediately and I’m very excited about it, I’ll be editing and mixing the show, helping out with recording techniques and general audio stuff. With a background as an audio engineer and also my podcasting experience from Linux Outlaws I hope I can help to bring them the best audio quality possible.

The show will be called The Software Freedom Law Show and will comprise a 30min discussion of legal matters in the FLOSS world from people who actually know what they’re talking about. They’ll also have guests and it should be released every 2 weeks. It’s presented by Bradley M. Kuhn, president of the Software Freedom Conservancy and also former Executive Director of the Free Software Foundation and Karen Sandler one of the legal counsel at the SFLC. I’ve been working with them for a few weeks but we didn’t want to announce anything until the first episode of the show was released and I’m very pleased to say that now it is!! 🙂

You can find it on the SFLC website in ogg (of course) and mp3 formats. So please go and check it out. I think it sounds great (but then I would hehe) and I’m really excited to be working with such well respected names in the free software world. I think this is an area that few people could cover authoratively and the SFLC are just the experts for the case… no pun intended.

I hope you enjoy the show

    @dan, I’ve already got a comment from a friend that the show sounds “better than all the Linux podcasts” he’d heard. He hadn’t listened to Linux Outlaws yet (obviously, because it sounds equally good ;), but I turned him onto it.
