OMG! Ubuntu! Podcast ‘Ubuntuesday': Episode 1

The podcast for people who don’t like podcasts, brought to you by people who know nothing about podcasts.”

Hello, hello, good evening. Yes, you read the title correctly! After two weeks delay since we announced the podcast, numerous technical difficulties and general all round disorganization, we bring you the first episode of the OMG! Ubuntu! podcast, Ubuntuesday.

We hope you enjoy our first episode. It was quite a lot of fun to record and we look forward to bringing you even more exciting new stuff over the next few episodes as we fine tune our segments and listen to feedback from you guys.  

Think of this first episode as a alpha release – with an awesome beta sure to follow ;)

Enough rambling you say!

[Excuse the slightly ‘tinny’ quality. I didn’t realise Audacity was mixing down to mono (no, not -that- mono) but, third time willing, a stereo version will be up in t-minus 1 hour 26 minutes… ]
