Jupiter Broadcasting Hosts

Meet the amazing hosts of Jupiter Broadcasting!

Allan Jude

TechSNAP, BSDNow

Why you are passionate about the subjects covered in your show?
I’ve always liked to talk shop, and to learn about the latest things in my field (Unix sysadmin). The show helps me keep current by giving me an excuse to research things that I might otherwise not make time for. I really enjoy my work and feel lucky that I get to do something I love every day.

What you like to do in your free time?
What free time? My friends and I try to get together to watch a movie or two a few times a month. Most of the free time I make for my self is spent going to technical conferences, because they are like an 2-3 day interactive episode of TechSNAP, talking shop with people who do interesting things. I also enjoy skiing and indoor rock climbing.

How you found Jupiter Broadcasting?
JB had moved its chatroom to my servers a while back, but I had never paid them much attention. One day the room had an unusually high number of people in it, so I stopped in to see what was going on. Before I could figure out what was going on, some random person named ‘Jeremy’asked “What is the name of Captain Archer’s Dog?”, so which I immediately replies “Porthos”. As it turns out, I had stumbled into a trivia contest and I had in fact won a closed-beta invite to Star Trek Online. Over the next few days as the JupiterForce guild started to come together, I donated hosting for a TeamSpeak server, so we could all chat while playing. I eventually took over hosting the Jupiter Colony site when the old web host shut the site down for being too busy. And then I eventually took over hosting the main site, the live stream, the episode downloads and more. Somewhere in there, I also got asked about doing a show.

Ambitions or future projects you are excited about?
ScaleEngine is growing nicely and we are implementing a number of new features, including converting all of our servers of ‘Root-on-ZFS’ with Boot Environments. I am also working on a spare time project to develop a workaround for a shortcoming in the LACP protocol to make better use of multiple gigabit network links between storage servers.

Your favorite episode you’ve done so far?
I think one of my favourite episodes was “TechSNAP 93 – Red October Hunts you”

Getting to go in to detail on one of the most complex bits of malware ever seen was really interesting. Although some of my favourite episodes of TechSNAP are where I get to explain some cool technology, like RAID or the complexities of taking proper backups.

How you prefer people to contact you?
I am fairly active on Twitter (@AllanJude) and a bit on G+ (gplus.to/allanjude) but you can also email me at allan@jupiterbroadcasting.com

Angela Fisher

FauxShow

Why you are passionate about the subjects covered in your show?
I chose topics I want to cover in the FauxShow based on my own interest and the interest of the community. I rarely like to announce ahead of time what the subject will be because it’s easy to say “Oh that’s boring” but I like that the FauxShow makes even seemingly boring topics, fun. I also see the show as continuing education.

What you like to do in your free time?
I really enjoy taking pictures and scrapbooking. I’m a big fan of reading, though I don’t get to read as much as I’d like to.

How you found Jupiter Broadcasting?
I FOUND IT IN MY HOUSE! :-O

Ambitions or future projects you are excited about?
I look forward to expanding my role at Jupiter Broadcasting both on the back end and in content. I think my biggest efforts so far have been in my show, the affiliates, and the newsletter.

Your favorite episode you’ve done so far?
It was really hard to choose, but I really like the Flat Angela Awards. It was so cool to see the audience print me out and take me all around the world! It TRULY made it a social experience.

Chase Nunes

Unfilter

Why you are passionate about the subjects covered in your show?
There is so much happening in the world, and the reporting on that needs to be told in a “unbiased” and “real” manner. The older I get and the more I learn, the more I want to share. It’s frustrating to see how things are unraveling, becoming tilted and biased out there…..so to be able to share my personal feelings and thoughts are a powerful thing to be able to do every week.

What you like to do in your free time?
When I’m not broadcasting, I like to play pinball, watch a variety of sports to include baseball, cricket, austrailian rules football and tinker a lot with technology and gaming.

How you found Jupiter Broadcasting?
I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts when I heard Chris’s name mentioned (during the No Agenda Show) and they stated that he was from the same town I live in! I was like “no freaking way?!?!” another broadcaster in the same town?? – So I contacted Chris via email and the rest (as they say) is history!

Ambitions or future projects you are excited about?
Continue building my network (GeekGamer.TV) and being involved in the broadcasting arena. I hope to some day to work in this medium full time. Ideally for myself….but for someone else would be cool too! :)

Your favorite episode you’ve done so far?
When Chris and I brought in special coverage of the 2012 election was really special. We flowed from one story to the next, breaking in with live coverage. It went so well and it was loads of fun. Love the special editions!

Heather Rose

SciByte

Why you are passionate about the subjects covered in your show?
I love science, I don’t remember not wanting to be some sort of scientist.

What you like to do in your free time?
In my free time I like to watch stars, sci-fi shows, read, and play games.

How you found Jupiter Broadcasting?
I often play MMO’s with my husband, which is why we ran across Jupiter Broadcasting’s STOked.

Ambitions or future projects you are excited about?
For SciByte I would love for it to grow, inspire, and educate.

Your favorite episode you’ve done so far?
My favorite SciByte shows are:
[SciByte 57 | Curiosity Rover & Interview with Dr. Robert Zubrin] for the interview and start of a Mars mission
[SciByte 53 | Higgs Boson] for the groundbreaking science
[SciByte 17 | Neutrinos & Tatooine] for the return of the show with new format.

Kris Moore

BSDNow

Why you are passionate about the subjects covered in your show?
I’m a big fan of BSD software and have been involved in the PC-BSD project since its inception. I think that diversity in the software world is a good thing, and will put the BSD license on top of all other comers when it comes to the simplicity and freedom it offers.

What do you like to do in your free time?
Between having a family and our 5 kids, I’m a pretty busy guy. However I have been, and always will be a video game fan and movie buff. I’m also in the process of learning to play Bass guitar and really enjoying a musical slice of life now.

How did you find Jupiter Broadcasting?
I first heard of Jupiter Broadcasting through Allan Jude, my co-host. I had met him at a Trade Show (BSDCan if I recall), and he told me about the Tech Snap podcast. About a year later he asked if I wanted to help him with BSDNow, and the rest, they say, is history.

What are ambitions or future projects you are excited about
Since my day job is working on the PC-BSD project, it is what fuels most of my future plans and ambitions. I’ve been very excited about some of the recent changes we’ve made in our upcoming 10.x series. In particular I’m looking forward to the future of doing more with ZFS and “bhyve” on Free/PC-BSD.

What is your favorite episode you’ve done so far?
So far my favorite episode would have to be number 14, our ZFS extravaganza. ZFS is one of the technologies which is fueling much innovation in the BSD space right now. Our tutorial and interview barely scratched the surface, but hopefully piqued a lot of interest in the future of file-systems.

How do you prefer people to contact you?
I’m not much for social media, rather old-school that way, so the best method is via my e-mail “kris@pcbsd.org”

Matt Hartley

Linux Action Show

Why you are passionate about the subjects covered in your show?
I fell in love with Linux on the desktop after roughly a decade fixing Windows computers for various clients. When I retired from that business, I retired my reliance on all things Microsoft as well.

What you like to do in your free time?
I enjoy spending time “harassing my wife” and goofing around with our pets. I’ve also been known to be a bit of a movie fan, when my free time allows me to partake in such activities.

How you found Jupiter Broadcasting?
I’ve been following the various shenanigans of the Linux Action Show for quite sometime now. I forget where it all started, but I suspect it had to do with me following all things Linux related.

Ambitions or future projects you are excited about?
I have a few projects up in the air, nothing I’m ready to share just yet though. :)

Your favorite episode you’ve done so far?
Oh boy, now that is tough. I have many, but my most recent favorite would have to be the Wrath of Cron episode — it was chaos that day and it rocked.

How you prefer people to contact you?
I’m terrible with email, so these days via G+ is probably going to yield the fastest response. For topics not meant for the public eye, just reach out to me here.

Michael Dominick

Coder Radio

Why you are passionate about the subjects covered in your show?
I’m passionate about developing software, because it is one of the only disciplines that allows an individual or small team to create something of quality as good or better than a large organization could create.

What you like to do in your free time?
In my free time, when I am not coding, I tend to read about non-technical things. I am something of a history buff and enjoy reading biographies of past world leaders and the like. I also enjoy enjoy a good work of fiction as well.

Your favorite episode you’ve done so far?
My favorite episode of Coder Radio so far has to be episode 29 our indie games special.

How you prefer people to contact you?
I always love hearing from listeners and encourage you all to reach me on Google plus or on Twitter: (@dominucco).
