I really, really am honored to announce what I'm about to announce.
So when I started thinking about what hackers.town:2600 would be, I had a dream for some spoken word shows to be in the mix as well.
We are going to be doing our own podcast soon that will be broadcast as well... but I reached out to some old heroes of mine and asked permission.
Sometimes all you have to do is ask.
@HackerRadioShow has granted permission for us to rebroadcast their show. These guy are awesome and have a weekly show about hackers/hacking/making on WBAI in NYC... and we will be rebroadcasting their shows in our mix soon...
Go follow @HackerRadioShow for the love of god, show them numbers to get them excited about the fediverse, because they have a bullhorn.
@Rob_T_Firefly rob is one of their co-hosts, and plugs mastodon regularly on the air.
Let's return the favor.
I love you fediverse.
Now let's get out there and restore the future.
