I would love to see the return of the podcast! Covering similar topics as to what we had before would be good, but it could be nice to have things be a little more conversational. Some of the older episodes felt like very rigid interviews. RHEL Presents is a good vibe of the little I’ve listened, so if it’s similar to that then I think we’re good.
I wonder if it would be beneficial to start with a limited series to gauge interest and go from there? So something like committing yourself to 5 episodes with the promise of continuing for longer based on what you guys see.
Schedule-wise I think whatever is flexible for you guys is probably best, but if there’s interest to have a regular schedule that’s fine too. Right now there is no expectation so it can be as frequent or infrequent as you guys want.
Also, you guys can coordinate with the Marketing Team and we can help where we can. We’ve been active on Mastodon with plans to get active on the other socials. We can help with promotion obviously, but also to potentially gather questions. “Ben Cotton will be our guest next week, what questions do you want to ask him?” That sort of thing. Or other ideas also!
Wanted to follow up on this to see if there’s a way for the podcast to move forward! From what I understand, there is interest from the community to see the podcast come back. It would be cool to see it come back soon, but I’m not aware of what may currently be in development.
Eduard, is there something in the works? Depending on where we’re at, I’m wondering if we could let Eric lead the podcast based on his experience with the RHEL Presents show. Of course, this is still a Fedora project that we can all participate in, but at least with him leading the podcast we can start it back up and get some consistent content, even if it’s a once a month show or something more flexible.
I think we all want to see the podcast running again. This way we can still provide input and help while having someone consistently stick with the podcast, gain momentum, and grow an audience. What do you think?
From what I remember from the old podcast, at a high level it was talking about news of the project and had some interviews with members of the project. What I remember not liking about the old podcast was that it seemed very flat, very monotone. What I would like to see is some news, most news does get covered by other news outlets, but maybe along with news about the project some interviews with people that made that news happen or interviews with people who are using Fedora for other things like gaming, graphic design, etc…
I’m requesting a new mic to mindshare since the previous one is broken. Some things that need to be done are:
Planning: maybe I’m old, but I don’t like to improvise too much, so I would love to schedule new interviews (that base of seasons 1 and 2) and have a clear path to new sections.
Fix website: I think because the elementor pro license expire, the site podcast.fedoraproject.org is now broken. It’s a WordPress instance so if someone knows a better way to make the theming or if we can get budget to update the elementor pro license, we could have it back.
That’s all we need. We have a pagure somewhere, need to check, where we can work to pus this forward. My plan was to go out with F38 with the new season but still no mic. I know I’m not indispensable for the podcast, but I would love to be at least until season 3, but if you can go forward without me, don’t hesitate, let me know what accesses you need and I can give them to you guys.
