Looking for good Linux podcasts


I listen to a lot of podcasts while I'm walking my dog. As a newbie to Linux (using Mint 18.x), I'm interested in any good podcasts that provide guidance, training, and tutorials for people coming over from the Windows world, who are trying to make the transition to being Linux-only. I found the "Going Linux" podcast, but am interested in one or two others, so I get diverse perspectives. Can anyone recommend good Linux podcasts that are helpful to the newbie?

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Going Linux is excellent. When I stumbled over it, I downloaded all the back episodes and haven't missed once since.

Sunday Morning Linux Review is excellent, as is Bad Voltage and GNUWorldOrder. (I probably learned more about how to use Linux from GNUWorldOrder and its previous incarnation, Bad Apples, than from any other single podcast.)

The Linux Voice podcast is one of my favorites. Like Bad Voltage and, to a lesser extent, SMLR, it has a quality sorely lacking from many tech podcasts: Laughter.

Late Night Linux is quite good, but tends to be on the longish side.

LinuxLugcast tends to drag on a bit, but I also enjoy that, but I must admit I don't always get all the way through an episode.

I no longer listen to Linux for the Rest of Us, because, frankly, I just don't have the time to devote to podcasts that I used to have, but you might want to check it out.

The podcasts at Hacker Public Radio are not restricted to Linux--or even to computing--but they skew heavily towards Linux-related topics. There are excellent in-depth series on topics such as LibreOffice, Vim, sed, and awk.

This list should keep you occupied for a while.

Thanks, FrankBell. I'll check these out. While I'm out of town for Thanksgiving might be a great time to get the ball rolling on some of these.

Enjoy. And may I recommend podget for a nice behind the scenes podcatcher.

It works quite nicely. I run it as cron job at 4 a. m. every morning and my podcasts are waiting for me when I awake.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday.

I download my podcasts to my Android phone using Stitcher, but it doesn't have some of the podcasts you suggested. Any other ideas for a podcast app for Android?

Happy Thanksgiving!

I download my podcasts to my computer with podget and copy them to my phone via Airdroid.

I like Linux unplugged and, from the same maker (which leads to a bit of redundancy between the two), Linux Action News.

I also listen to late night linux mentioned above...

@frankbell: Will definitely try some of those you mentioned!
