Why?? this was the program that introduced me to linux podcatching?
I only recently discovered them and I usually wait in anticipation for the next episoded. Not only are they informative, but they are also fun.
I am almost at the ready to start an online petition asking them to remain on the air..
No other Linux podcast even comes close to the value these guys give. That doesn't mean the other podcasts are bad, that just means these guys are really really good!!!

If you'll excuse, I'll go snicker in a corner now....

Why Jono, Whyyyyyyyyy?

Only one word
BALLS!
Very sad news

Right, I am for SURE going to Wolverhampton. I was trying to squeeze it in, but now this news means I'll cancel stuff to attend.

A CALL TO ARMS
Anyone in the UK (or traveling distance), I suggest, if anyone wants to, we show support for the great jobs these guys have done over the last few years and give them a great send off!!! How about an Ubuntu Forum meet down there. I will be going and hope to see you guys there.

i don't like them that much, and i'm definitely not going to Wolverhampton to see them lol. the linux action show, tllts and lottalinuxlinks are better linux podcasts 8)

i am not so crazy about tllts, I feel they blab on and on needlessly for over 2 hours. They may have news, but I don't have the attention span.
Also, the production quality is lacking. Because of the lag in VOIP software, you sometimes get akward silences, or everybody talking at once and it becomes hard to follow. And it often times feels like they didn't prepare their show properly and the sound quality is a bit subpar.
Now, A lot of this can be forgiven because it's a podcast, not a professional radio program, but it's lacking somewhat, IMHO.
I do appreciate that these guys make the effort, cause lord knows, I wouldn't even know where to start.

As far as podcasts go, I like UbuntuUK a lot, it is very professional, the only thing they lack is the spontaneity of LUGradio, but otherwise extremely well done.
I also love linux outlaws, because the german accent is endearing and they post frequently..!

the production of tllts doesn't bother me at all, but lots of people have mentioned it, so i must be lucky.

we should start a poll with all the known linuxpodcasts out there.
I recently learned of going linux. It is very basic and introductory for new linux users.

I don't know maybe it was their thick accents, the giggling and the talking over each other but I never could understand half the podcast.

thank you very much! i was wondering if i was the only one who felt this way. tllts has to be one of the most boring podcasts ive ever heard. and they talk about too much non-sense.

linux outlaws and linux action show are my 2 favs right now. lugradio had its moments, but wasnt my favorite.
