Jupiter Broadcasting is a podcasting network formed by Bryan Lunduke and Chris Fisher in May 2008 following the initial success of The Linux Action Show!, their first podcast. In 2008, the company had only two shows: The Linux Action Show! and CastaBlasta. They currently produce seven video and audio podcasts.

Current Shows[edit]

  • The Linux Action Show!, a video tech news show focusing on Linux and open source news. It is hosted by Chris Fisher and Matt Hartley (Formerly Bryan Lunduke and Chris Fisher until 2012).[1]
  • The Faux Show, branded as "not a real show, but a social experience", is a video podcast about topics which interest the hosts and includes heavy community involvement. It is hosted by Chris and Angela Fisher.[1]
  • TechSNAP, a "Systems, Networking, and Administration Podast" in video form that discusses major security flaws in large systems. It is hosted by Allan Jude and Chris Fisher.[1]
  • SciByte, an audio-only science news show which often discusses astronomy- and medicine-related news. It is hosted by Chris Fisher and Heather Rose.[1]
  • Unfilter, an unconventional news program that "unfilters the news" by reporting stories not covered by major networks, released in audio form. It is hosted by Chase Nunes and Chris Fisher.[1]
  • Coder Radio, a talk show that advises listeners on business and software development. It is hosted by Michael Dominick and Chris Fisher.[1]
  • Plan B, an audio show that discusses news relating to Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies. It is hosted by Chris Fisher and Drew Aadland. [2]
  • BSDNow, an all-encompassing BSD video podcast covering a range of topics on a variety of BSDs. It is hosted by Allan Jude and Kris Moore.

All shows are streamed live, and when shows are not being streamed there are usually reruns of past shows, The Computer Chronicles, movies, other podcasts (such as The No Agenda Show), or music licensed under Creative Commons licenses. Jupiter Broadcasting also uses social media such as an IRC channel[3] and reddit. The company encourages viewer interaction during live streams.

In June 2012, it was announced that Jupiter Broadcasting would begin hosting a more active Live Radio segment, using Airtime. Members of the public could help participate by doing their own shows on a regular basis - creating a legitimate always-on internet radio stream, featuring music held under the Creative Commons Licence (or other similarly permissive licences) and interesting shows put together by the public when Jupiter Broadcasting is not streaming its own content.
