Linux Inlaws.

This is Linux Inlaws, a series on free and open source software, black humour, the revolution and freedom in general (this includes ideas and software) and generally having fun.

In this episode Chris is trying hard to get Martin to sleep by elaborating on the subject of free and open source software licenses but fails miserably. Listen to a more than riveting episode on the ins and outs of licensing FLOSS code bases in addition to banter about Brexit, plans for a reshaping of Europe after the invasion of England and Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland leave the UK.

Another good show

As anyone who has listened to my shows knows I take licensing very seriously. My own view is that if your objective is to expand the free software ecosystem, use the GPL. If your objective is to promote proprietary software, use one of the unrestrictive licenses like MIT or BSD
