About

BSD Now is a weekly presentation dedicated to spreading the word about the BSD family of operating systems. We also aim to keep those who are already aware up to date with the latest news and developments. It started in mid-2013 and the first episode aired on September 4th of that year. BSD advocacy has traditionally been lacking in comparison to other OS communities, and we wanted to change that. We decided to take a modern approach on the matter, and ended up with a video podcast.

The show is hosted by Allan and Kris and written/produced by TJ.
