So I set out today to rediscover Diaspora, the open social network that was once a Kickstarter phenomenon. While I didn’t spend much time there, I did stumble across something relatively new that I had not yet heard of. UBUNTU.AUDIOCA.ST.
Now, don’t let the post title fool you. I have nothing really bad to say about this podcast. I listen to plenty of stupid podcasts regularly. 40-Year Old Boy and Jordan Jesse Go come to mind here. But this one takes the cake. Why? Because it has nearly nothing to do with Ubuntu… Instead it just seems to be like what it might be to hang out with a handful of dudes that simply enjoy Ubuntu. Actually, it’s more like a handful of Canadian dudes with vivid imaginations talking about Ubuntu. Just imagine if you will The Kids In The Hall crashing a C64 convention. Yeah, I think that pretty much sums things up.
It is important to note that I’ve only listened to episode 3, hosted by a Canadian dark-sith-ish overlord, leading a bizarre chorus of Vancouver natives pronouncing Ubuntu in strange and inventive ways. It later evolves into proper/improper pronunciation of Joey Elijah Sneddon, Editor of OMG Ubuntu. It’s pretty funny. My favorite is “Sneddon-don”, half Joey, half dinosaur.
Should I listen?
If the past 2 episodes and future episodes are equally as stupid as this, I would say yes! Though these guys are super fun to listen too regardless. If for some reason this episode is the least serious of the bunch, I would still give the others a chance. I feel like I would enjoy listening to these guys actually talking about Ubuntu, and you might enjoy it too! Now, allow me to get at the other episodes so I can make an accurate call.
