Im not sure if others feel the same way as me, but ive almost listened to every BSDtalk episide u have, since ive leeched every 1 off of your server to listen to and lately, these interviews are sort of entirely different from the point u even started the podcast. like u used to explain a port and helped ppl how to use it or made suggestions for alternative software or compared stuff for clarification, which was awesome! is all you focus on now are interviews??, sure askin a sysadmin about their specialty software is the best insight on that piece of software, but your interviews seem to lack advise for bsd users, as im still a novice bsd user, but your podcasts lately really arent informal anymore as they once were, on the most part. but i do like hearing what the events are in the BSD world and important news like the acquisition of PC-BSD. just a sugestion from a fan of bsd talk, peace out and thanks for your continued effort for bsd users

I like the interviews personally. Hearing BSD developers and whatnot talk about the software they write or use is great.

Yes, I should do some more tutorials and examples for users. I'll try to make that happen.

I also have listened to almost all your podcasts and enjoy them on the whole.

However, as an OpenBSD novice, I would really appreciate a little more how-to advice.

BSD has a great community and it is better for efforts like yours.

Keep up the great work!

Thanks for the PodCast Mr. I love this PodCast and I'm really happy for our BSD-community. Keep up the incredible good work :)

I'd like to say that I do like the informal discussions in this podcast. Whilst having some how-tos might be interesting, I think it is still very valuable to have life interviews with some of the people that make OpenBSD possible. I think now only Theo's interview is missing. :)
