I voted for my own show, and I'm not afraid to admit it!

Thanks for adding me on as a candidate, I'm very flattered.

I voted for LAS even though it is no longer broadcast. I watched it regularly (youtube rather than podcast); even bought their farewell t-shirt.

I downloaded and binged most off these podcasts, and I'm voting for Bad Voltage because of Stuart Langridge's voice.

I no longer listen to BV because of Stuart Langridge - I find him unbearable. Not trying to be mean but his constant laughing is irritating.

Apparently that wasn't even necessary to rank best!
Congrats to you and thanks for a really nice show.

I really like listening to "internet radio" - let's include podcasts.
I've been listening to a load of linux podcasts, currently my phone's podcast app has these subscriptions:
  • Destination Linux
  • This Week in Linux
  • FLOSS Weekly
  • Going Linux (goinglinux.com)
  • Linux Action News
  • The Linux Tech Show
  • GNU World Order
  • Bad Voltage
  • Late Night Linux
I must say I'm appalled how bad some of these podcasts are - just regurgitating various news items that have been floating around the 'net, and chatting about shiny GUIs. Usually all very much feelgood about how "Linux is getting better all the time". Seriously, where are the in-depth reviews? Of software, distros, platforms?

About my own subscriptions above: I haven't come to a final verdict yet - especially those I don't like.
I still have to actually listen to some.
I don't want to name the worst.

But these are certainly good:
  • GNU World Order (totally not trying to please the audience, slow-paced, informative. sometimes a little too low-key)
  • Bad Voltage (not strictly a Linux podcast, but a very good combination of speakers, deep and critical discussions, trying to get to the bottom of things)
  • Late Night Linux (good combination of speakers, deep and critical discussions, trying to get to the bottom of things - i esp. liked the critical interview with the Purism guy)
Considering my tastes, any more recommendations?

Very useful, ondoho. Though what I am about to add is not useful - still, I shall do it anyway. All I have to add is certainly don't listen to The Ubuntu Weekly News, it is surely the most boring podcast on the web. It's just one guy spouting the news reharding Ubuntu in a very boring, unenthusiastic Scottish drawl. It is only useful as an advisory on how not to do a podcast.

Secondly you may have really enjoyed the Linux Voice podcast. It's gone on hiatus but it's still downloadable. Very non-sensationalist, informative, critical and with a bit of of dry British humour:

^ thanks. i'd seen Linux Voice, but I might have listened to some episodes already. Nov. 2017 is just getting a little too old for me.

BTW, today I listened to one that was so bad that I have to name it:
The Linux Link Tech Show
A bunch of (partly inebriated) males on constantly dropping lo-fi connections with no program whatsoever.
I gave them a chance, really. I tried, 3 episodes. I had to listen to them spout cracker-barrel (stammtisch) wisdom over airport security, hotel room wifi, the weather, and sometimes even some open source projects. Long pauses where no-one knows what to say next.
Avoid at all cost!
