FLOSS Weekly is a weekly show hosted by Randal Schwartz and his rotating panel containing interviews with prominent evangelists and developers in the Free, Libre, and Open Source Software movement. FLOSS Weekly premiered on April 7th, 2006. The show currently airs live on Wednesday at 8:00am PT/11:00am ET with the on demand download available within 24hrs.



Most episodes feature the primary developer or developers of a particular open source software or hardware project. The show is an open discussion, with Schwartz and co-host asking questions about the nature of the project. Typically, the interviewers will ask the guests about the history of the project, and its development model (such as which language it is written in, which version control system is used, and what development environment the author uses). Some shows, such as the interviews with Jon "Maddog" Hall and Simon Phipps, are not specific to an open source project, and feature more general topics, such as the philosophy of free and open source software.
