Friday No 5 PRESENTS
Free as in freedom

In 2024, when a month has 5 Fridays, we will find another podcast that excites us and spread the word. This month we look at an old episode of Free as in Freedom!


Episode 013     May 31, 2024

Every year some months have five Fridays, and every time this happens we find something to do there: something out of our normal schedule. We try to adopt an annual theme. In 2021 we played music licensed under creative commons licences; in 2022 we found four old radio shows; and in 2023 we looked back to four early episodes of Meanwhile in an Abandoned Warehouse.

This year whenever we stumble into the fifth Friday of a month we will look around us and find a podcast that interests us: one published under a Creative Commons licence that relates in one way or another to our areas of interest.

This show brings you Episode 69 of a podcast called Free as in Freedom, and was released on Tuesday 12 November 2019. It was produced by The Software Freedom Conservancy.

Karen M. Sandler and Bradley M Kuhn discuss the end to Microsoft’s e-book platform and move on to talk more generally about the dangers and disasters that Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) causes for software users and developers.
