Meat casting Open Season, an irreverent open source podcast

The first installment of Open Season, an irreverent, off-the-record take on the open source market.

Whether you have any fun listening to this new podcast, I had a lot of fun recording it with two good friends, Ashlee Vance of The Register and Dave Rosenberg, CEO of MuleSource. Ashlee asked us a few weeks ago whether we'd want to do a podcast on open source. I normally wouldn't find this interesting, but given The Register's take on life, I thought it would be fun.

And it was, as Ashlee notes:

There's no shame in admitting that we've turned punditry into an art form with this first episode, which runs about an hour. We talk about Microsoft's attempts to live the open source lifestyle, the apocalyptic horrors of Web 2.0 and its effect on the open source lifestyle and Oracle's issues with open source eroticism or simply open source schisms. Take your pick.

We also have a look at the new CPA license, the Google backlash, Hadoop, SugarCRM and MySQL's IPO prospects, XenSource, VMware, Openads and Marketcetera. Who could ask for anything more?

Have a listen. I think you'll enjoy it. If you don't, let me know and tell us what we should be chatting about. I think we're going to have Mark Shuttleworth with us on the next one, so at least some intelligence will crop up on the meat cast from time to time.
