TuxJam 75 – Beer goggles

The usual geekoloid trio are back – Kevie, Dave (ask thelovebug) and Andrew (aka mcnalu) – riding a raft of free and open source goodness on the white waters of Creative Commons licensed tunes.

As usual we scour distrowatch.com for recent and less well-known distro releases and then go on to recount our experiences with AVLinux which specialises in audio and video production. We had intended to review a distro named after a beer but the only one we found was Stella and we had zero luck with it. (TBH, us real ale quaffing snobs find it hard to get on with Stella Artois the drink.)

And if you can make it to Glasgow on the last Saturday of July, we would be delighted to welcome you to this year’s Podcrawl Glasgow. If you cannot make it in person, why not drink along with us and join in our live review of a beer app called Bierverkostung (it’s German for Beer Tasting – might it literally mean beer works tongue?). More details in due course.

  1. I am bit late with my podcast listening. So only got to listen to this episode this morning. While gardening, no less.
    So this comment is the day after Podcrawl Glasgow. Hope you all had a nice time! I am sure you have. And I am not envious at all. No. Nope.
    I have one question about this episode. Someone mentioned “independent beer”. What is that? Does it mean you cannot order it? Only ask nicely for its presence? Or does it mean it might not stay in the place you put it?
    As you are an independent audiocast, I cannot demand an answer, just humbly ask for a response.
    Yours truly,
    Inscius
