Open Source Creative Podcast

Episodes of the Open Source Creative Podcast, a weekly podcast where I ramble about creativity, process, and open source software during my commute.

Listen to me talk, maybe learn a thing or two, vehemently disagree with me, and rejoice at the fact that my clutch pedal no longer squeaks in the background… because I no longer drive a car with manual transmission. Also, fair warning, I tend to use profanity. So if you’re sensitive to that, listen with the volume turned lower.

Intro and outro music was shamelessly pilfered from the very talented Sam Brubaker.

Open Source Creative Podcast #17 – On Selfishness

Yay! Another Open Source Creative Podcast episode. In this one, I have a long conversation with myself about the nature of art and open source software as it pertains to selfishness. Is art inherently selfish? Is it not? Is that a bad thing? And likewise for Free Software. Yeah… it’s an interesting thing and it… Read more »

Open Source Creative Podcast #16 – Let’s Talk Spec

At long last, another Open Source Creative Podcast episode is here! Sorry for the long gap between episodes, folks… it’s been a crazy month. In any cast, this episode was recorded back in March and in it I talk about doing spec work (that is, speculative work) as a creative producer of things. Episode 15… Read more »

Open Source Creative Podcast #14 – Taking the Flipside

So this episode turned out to be a really long one. The bulk of it is a topic that comes courtesy of @3pointedit on Twitter (thanks for listening!). That is, the costs of choosing to use free and open source software tools to produce your creative works. We often hear (or read) the benefits, but… Read more »
