This is news cast 175.
In the intro, more updates on my upcoming guest appearances. The latest episode of the SPaMCast went out on the 20th and I am next in the pipe, so my appearance there should be out on May 4th. I recorded a review of the film, “Six String Samurai”, for Fanboy Hell, just yesterday and that should also be out the week of the 4th. Dan and M.A. release every two weeks and just but out a new episode, today. Dan takes a very similar approach to his show’s production to mine and M.A. and he delve into wonderful depths in their discussions. I cannot recommend their show highly enough. Last but certainly not least, I was invited onto the live streaming of The Linux Link Tech Show. I will be on the stream the evening of the 13th and the podcast version should be available soon after.
