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 Freenode.
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 Jack,
Ardour, Calf, and more. This might even be the topic for the first week:
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 pretty
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. :)
