I'm always looking for podcasts that can help me keep up with operating systems and development. That said, I typically listen to the Linux Outlaws podcast, but was wondering if there are other Linux/Unix podcasts that many of you find helpful or informative, both with learning Linux or keeping up with the changes to it.

I'm not a huge podcast guy but you might want to try TuxRadar It's one of the better Linux ones I've heard.

I've been listening to the Going Linux podcast and find it quite easy to listen to. They cover subjects easy enough for beginners and also go deeper in following podcasts. Once a month, they play a recording of one of them answering questions about Linux on the radio. In my opinion, this is a good entry level podcast.

About Linux kernel itself, there is only one: http://www.kernelpodcast.org/. Although the author is asking for help to keep up with the constant flood of lkml, it's not very regular those days.

Roughly weekly, Randal Schwartz puts out an episode of FLOSS Weekly. This will take a look at some Free Software project by inviting a leader in the project on to answer questions. Common that I've noticed are:

  • What does it do?
  • Who started it?
  • How mature is it?
  • What license is it under? Does the leader being interviewed know why it's under that one?
  • How did interviewee get involved with the project?

Two links from me:

  • Sourcetrunk - in each episode author presents some useful free software applications. Even some old episodes are worth to listen - sometime you could find some interesting application...
  • The Linux Action Show! - it's been a long time since last time when I listened this one, but if I remember correctly it was news about Linux software and hardware...

Besides the ones already mentioned, I also listen to the following:

Sunday Morning Linux Review - talks about the Linux kernel, news, distros, reviews and even quizzes; very useful and enjoyable podcast

Linux Voice - the guys that left Linux Format magazine - and thus the related TuxRadar podcast - started a new magazine and podcast called Linux Voice (for a small period, it was called Linux Lifestyle)

mintCast - although the guys are Linux Mint fans, they cover news, tips & reviews about all that's Linux

Free As In Freedom - not necessarily a Linux podcast, but you might find it interesting, being a podcast about political and legal issues in open-source software which people don't talk about very often

Linux Luddites - a new Linux podcast, but seems very promising; from their description: "we try all the latest free and open source software and then decide that we like the old stuff better."

DistroCast - reviews of Linux distributions, but they have been inactive for some time

A great one I listen to regularly is The Linux Action Show. The presenter of the show talks so fast, you get way more facts/hour than any other linux podcast... funny in places too.
