First episode of Listener Feedback podcast released!

March 26th, 2012 No comments

A fellow Linux Experiment Guinea Pig and I decided that we would start a new podcast showcasing some of the very best (and possibly worst) royalty free and creative commons music available. We’ve devised a short-format creation, so you don’t get bored, that aims to explore a new artist/album combination with each episode. In the podcast we share our thoughts, praise and criticism of each work and also feature a few songs in order to give you a taste of what to expect on the full album.

Check out the podcast over at www.listenerfeedback.net where you can listen to the show, download the episode’s featured album, leave us a comment or make a suggestion as to what we should listen to next. I hope you enjoy.

Going Linux podcast

November 5th, 2009 No comments

Just wanted to take a quick moment to thank the gentlemen over at Going Linux for mentioning us on their most recent podcast. They certainly have discussed many interesting topics over the course of the last 83(!) podcasts and seem to always have some new tip or trick waiting on deck to tell us all about! I highly recommend their podcast to anyone looking to learn new things about Linux.

Thanks again guys!
