For a first attempt at flying solo for an episode of HPR, Kevie takes a look at a variety of open source CD ripping software. Looking at graphical applications Sound Juicer and Asunder along with the command line tools Bashburn and Crip. Along with considering if it is worth having a dedicated ripping tool when a fully fledged audio suite Rhythmbox and VLC will also allow ripping.

Regular listeners to the TuxJam podcast will know that Kevie is a big fan of creative commons music and this episode is no different with the tracks by 20lb Sounds and Blowing Up Bridges.

Sadly K3B was missing from the list. Definitely one to review.

This was a nice informative introduction to these rippers. I greatly enjoyed the music intermissions too. :)
