We started producing shows as Today with a Techie 10 years ago this weekend. To mark the project we track down droops one of the founders and ask him about the early days.

About HPR.

Hacker Public Radio (HPR) is an Internet Radio show (podcast) that releases shows every weekday Monday through Friday. HPR has a long lineage going back to Radio FreeK America, Binary Revolution Radio & Infonomicon, and it is a direct continuation of Twatech radio. Please listen to StankDawg's "Introduction to HPR" for more information.

What differentiates HPR from other podcasts is that the shows are produced by the community - fellow listeners like you. There is no restrictions on how long the show can be, nor on the topic you can cover as long as they "are of interest to Hackers". If you want to see what topics have been covered so far just have a look at our Archive. We also allow for a series of shows so that host(s) can go into more detail on a topic.

You can download/listen to the show here or you can subscribe to the show in your favorite podcatching client (like BashPodder) to automatically get our new shows as soon as they are available. You can copy and redistribute the shows for free provided you adhere to the Creative Commons AttributionShareAlike 3.0 License.

We do not filter the shows in any way other than to check if they are audible and not blatant attempts at spam.

Hacker Public Radio is dedicated to sharing knowledge. We do not accept donations, but if you listen to HPR, then we would love you to contribute one show a year.

Thank you again Ken for keeping all of this together and thank you to everyone who has recorded and episode and truly been a part of the HPR community. It would not exist without you.

Wow, as a public school survivor, hearing all about your class makes me a little envious to be honest.

I loved this interview

I really enjoyed this. Congratulations and thanks Ken.

It was great to understand more about the history of HPR, and to get further insight into who the founders were, and what their motivation was.

And droops - you sound like a hell of a teacher :-)
