Best Linux Podcasts?

by Jeremy Jones

I've been listening to The Linux Action Show podcast for a few months now and really enjoy it. I've tried other Linux podcasts, but they seem focused on the noob level. Can anyone recommend a good Linux podcast for experienced Linux users?

LUGRadio is a great Linux podcast, featuring the talents of Jono Bacon, Chris Procter, Stuart Langridge, and Adam Sweet. Its not for those who don't appreciate British humor, or locker-room language, so if you're easily offended, please check out another podcast. If, however, you aren't easlity offended, you'll hear four passionate guys talk about Linux, Open Source, and a host of other topics. Very highly recommended.

Yeah, lugradio is a good one. I also happen to like listening to Dave Yates at It's an 'acquired' taste but his attitude and self-deprecating sense of humour has made me a faithful listener. It's much more personal and less 'shiny' than lugradio or LAS to be sure, but I love it.

FLOSS Weekly is a good podcast, they've had some great interviews in the past that i would higly recommend listening to the old ones.

The Linux Link Tech Show is also a great podcast and they maintain a list of other podcasts here: . TLLTS is a relaxed slow moving show and is quite long so it might take some getting used to. I didn't like it at first but once I started to get to know the hosts I really started enjoying it and they tend to have excellent interviews with a wide variety of Linux luminaries. Bsdtalk also has great interviews although naturally it has a bsd slant. RadioTux, a German linux podcast also has occasional English interviews, well worth a listen:

download the FOSDEM presentation videos from, pull out the audio, reencode for your player of choice, and enjoy.

they're not true "podcasts", the speaker is sometimes barely audible, and probably not as entertaining as 99% of podcasts, but they are the most technically informative audio on FOSS (and indirectly linux).

there's also "Google Tech Talks" @ and, though those are less linux centric, and sometimes purely academic.

none of those are "podcasts" and require a little work (mplayer, even on windows, is your friend), but then again i don't read the opinion section of the newspaper.

maybe one day pycon will even work out a process to get their audio published.
