We didn't record as planned last night because Pete was a mardy swine and didn't want to. Please see the promotions manager for a full refund of next weeks subscription. :-)

Looking over some old stuff in the  #tdtrs  folders. Here's something that never made it to the show. The idea was to interview Luke Slater AKA @reality for the role of:

Created: 4/3/13
tdtrs Community Manager Interview

Sound of knocking at the door.

Matt: “Come in.”

Sound of foot steps (long)

Pete: “Please take a seat on that toilet over there.”

Matt: “Question”

Luke: “Answer”

Pete: “We're looking for a role model to represent the show, when did you last polish your shoes?

Luke: “Answer”

Matt: “Question”

Luke: “Answer”

Pete: “............"

Clearly Pete has always had a shoe issue?

First draft editing of EP88 is done. Can't decide between "Crunch goes Bang" or "Bye bye Phil" as the title?

Definitely the former, look forward to it!

Sadly +Philip Newborough will not be on the recording of EP88 tonight to talk about his decision to stop working on +CrunchBang so in true #tdtrs  style we'll probably make stuff up and turn the old guilt thumbscrews a few times.

that is sad news, Crunchbang is an excellent distro. If I weren't spreading myself thin with television, radio and acting I'd take it over.

EP88 - Crunch goes Bang! is released. http://tdtrs.co.uk #tdtrs  

The GPG Encryption project nearly runs out of money until some of the big boys come to its rescue and hand over a load of dosh. Pete and Matt discuss whether all projects should come under a single umbrella such as The Linux Foundation.

+Raspberry Pi 2 announced but can you in fact get more bang for your buck with the plethora of devices out there? The guys muse that the Raspberry Pi project seems to be moving away from its original reason for coming to the market.

Main Topic
+Philip Newborough has announced the end of +CrunchBang we did try to blackmail him onto the show but clearly he was holding out for a better offer. :-D

It began in South Africa
Huzzah! Finally a phone! While Matt and Pete are chuffed to bits that +Canonical finally listened to #tdtrs and got some stock phones. They're less than impressed with what you actually get in the box.

EP87 Choosing Volunteers is released

So we're back with a little bit of a low key show but then it has been a month since the last release.

All change in the podcasting world: With Linux Outlaws throwing the towel in Pete and Matt discuss Fab and Dan's all new? GDR although Pete keeps thinking it's DDR. We then hear the further sad news that the Full Circle podcast has packed it in. And finally that UUPC are looking for a presenter? As Tony Whitmore has packed it in.

Matt tells us how the EFF have released an app but refuse to agree to Apple's terms. Pete just thinks it's a steak meal.

Matt tells us how Chromebooks outsell windows laptops
Pete gets a touch over excited about a game he's says he's thought up. TDTRS game: http://tdtrs.co.uk/stuff/TDTRS_Game.php

Agreed. The only Linux show worth my eardrum's attention. The others make me violent and wish Windows ME on people. Namely the hosts.

The votes are in and the unanimous decision by esteemed judges we have awarded ourselves the most niche podcast of 2014

Introduction
Welcome to The Dick Turpin Roadshow, a humorous look at the Open Source community from comments on social networks, peoples blogs and websites to the mad bag lady on the street corner.

Some, if not everything, said here is probably the fiction of our warped minds so there's little point in getting upset about anything we say. Hopefully you'll find us funny and entertaining, there will be some rude words so if you have a weak heart or are easily offended this is not for you.
