For his second attempt at a solo episode of HPR, Kevie talks about a very positive experience he had introducing school pupils to podcasting. From this he was able to discuss the benefits of Creative Commons music and using open source, cross platform software. The ultimate success came when three students took the plunge and installed Linux on their own computers.

Hi Kevie,

Excellent show

Hearing the story of how you introduced your students to FLOSS brought a big smile to my face.

It's so sad that a knowledge of how the world works, critical thinking and similar topics aren't already on the curriculum.

Thanks Kevie
