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 slant. 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 answer. - News from around the Linux community with discussion, with openSUSE and SUSE news first and headlining. - Main topic or interview, hopefully centered around (open)SUSE - Emails & Feedback - END
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.

Hello all, I just did a Google search looking for a potential openSUSE podcast and came across an old thread on this list with various people interested in starting one up. Unfortunately, nothing ever came from that, with the exception of, at the beginning of this year, Bryan 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 something of the like seem to be projects within my wheelhouse. I’m a former 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 editor, 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, or 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 conversation to bounce around. Anyhow, if this seems like a good idea, then let me know. It sure would be “a lot of fun.” Erich Eickmeyer-- To unsubscribe, e-mail: email@example.com To contact the owner, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
