Tuxradar is still tuxradar, right?

If my memory is good for the one day since I listened, a listener gave feedback that tuxradar is now linux voice. And the hosts confirmed that. But tuxradar is still going and linux voice, while consisting of most of the old tux radar people is a different entity. In theory both will be awesome linux podcasts into the future and beyond.

Or is my catcher fibbing to me?

You are quite right

It was a comment by tonieee on pointing out that the hosts from TuxRadar had relocated to the Linux Voice magazine and podcast.

Apologies to all if we gave the wrong impression. I actually subscribe to both magazines and both podcasts and enjoy them all.
