Bad Voltage in 2014

In 2013 we kicked off Bad Voltage, a fun and irreverent podcast about technology, Open Source, gaming, politics, and anything else we find interesting. The show includes a veritable bounty of presenters including Stuart Langridge (LugRadio, Show Of Jaq), Bryan Lunduke (Linux Action Show), Jeremy Garcia (LinuxQuestions Podcast), and myself (LugRadio, Shot Of Jaq).

We have all podcasted quite a bit before and we know it takes a little while to really get into the groove, but things are really starting to gel in the show. We are all having a blast doing it, and it seems people are enjoying it.

If you haven’t given the show a whirl, I would love to encourage you to check out our most episode. In it we feature:

  • An interview with Sam Hulick who writes music for video games (Mass Effect, Baldur’s Gate) as well as some of the Ubuntu sounds.
  • We discuss the Mars One project and whether it absolutely madness or vague possibility.
  • We evaluate how Open Source app devs can make money, different approaches, and whether someone could support a family with it.
  • Part One of our 2014 predictions. We will review them at the end of the year to see how we did. Be sure to share your predictions too!

Go and download the show in either MP3 or Ogg format and subscribe to the podcast feeds!

We also have a new community forum that is starting to get into its groove too. The forum is based on Discourse, so is a pleasure to use, and a really nice community is forming. We would love to welcome you too!

In 2014 we want to grow the show, refine our format, and grow our community around the world. Our goal here is that Bad Voltage becomes the perfect combination of informative but really fun to listen to. I have no doubt that our format and approach will continue to improve with each show. We also want to grow an awesome, inclusive, and diverse community of listeners too. Our goal is that people associate the Bad Voltage community as a fun, like-minded set of folks who chat together, play together, collaborate together, and enjoy the show together.

Here’s to a fun year with Bad Voltage and we hope you come and be a part of it. :-)
