The Full Circle Podcast needs Panelists!

Saluton Amikojn! (Esperanto for Hello Friends!)

In order to encourage discussion on the topics, and to keep me company whilst recording, I am looking for a group of co-hosts for our panel. Podcasting experience isn’t necessary (although it is helpful), but if you have a passion for *buntu topics, are a positive and opinionated person, then we want your application!

Email your applications to podcast [AT] We can’t wait to have you on the show!

PS: Podcast related topics will be discussed at the next General Meeting. If you are interested, please attend if you can. I’m sure that Ron would like some company ;)

EDIT: Hi guys.  We have plenty of applications at the present time.  I have responded to those who have sent emails, and some of those guys will be on Episode 10 of The Penguin Central Podcast.  Thank you for your quick response!


Hello Everyone…
