Which podcasts in either the Ubuntu or general Linux categories are the most helpful or most enjoyable.

One podcast per answer which could be voted independently would be useful and possibly mentioning if it is highly technical, generally informative, or just fun.


I also want to add a plug for the Ubuntu UK podcast. Produced by the UK loco team, more family friendly, but less controversial.


Not exclusively Ubuntu but Dan and Fab at Linux Outlaws have a great podcast. Recorded live usually on a Monday evening (UK time)

    A great podcast, but a caveat: it's not a podcast where the hosts watch their language. :) – Broam Aug 11 '10 at 15:02
  • +1 Fan and Dan do wander off topic at times but the informal style and the personalities of the presenters make this a great listen. – Richard Holloway Aug 11 '10 at 22:16

Full Circle Podcast by the Full Circle Magazine.


I like FLOSS Weekly which is about Free Libre Open Source Software. This is hosted by Leo Laporte and Randal Schwartz along with a guest host (sometimes). It is not exclusively on Linux, but they are a great introduction to a lot of the Open Source software thats available out there.

  • Leo Laport has not been on FOSS Weekly for several months now, Randal has a series of co-hosts – Stuart Aug 12 '10 at 14:45
  • Yeah, but I believe the show is still produced and distributed by Leo – Nikhil Sep 14 '10 at 10:42

The Tuxradar Podcast by some editors of Linux Format Magzine is a show recorded every two weeks which includes some news about the Linux and Free Software world, a lot of commenting and discussing and a lot of fun (jokes, challenges) too. The guys don't take themselves too seriously and you shouldn't do either.


The Linux Action Show is a lot of fun.


While no longer in production, the Linux Reality podcast is an excellent way to improve your understanding of Linux and the concepts surrounding it. The full show is 100 episodes long, and each covers a different part of Linux.
