This week, I had the pleasure of talking to Jonas Öberg, Executive Director of Free Software Foundation Europe. Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) is an organisation that advocates for the right of users to control technology, which can be achieved by using free software. On top of taking about FSFE’s work and its 15th anniversary (yeay!), we also talked a bit about FSFE Summit 2016, and exciting gathering happening this weekend in Berlin.

As if all this was not enough, on this episode, there was also time for some of the finest free music out there.

Following the current transformation of White Market into a syndication platform for community radio stations, the interview is also available for download separately in a variety of formats. You can find extra details about the interview and extra credits here. If you have a community radio station and are unsure about rebroadcasting White Market Podcast content, make sure you read our FAQs.

On this week’s show, we had the pleasure to talk to Alex Lungu from Copy-Me. Copy-Me is a platform that tries to debunk myths around copying… So, they talk a lot about issues such as copyright, remixing, creativity and so on. The project started as a webseries and was crowdfunded on Indiegogo. Now, Copy-Me is a hub of knowledge and creative resources related to said topics. Much like White Market Podcast, because copyright is such a complex issue, they often delve into parallel themes, such as piracy and web surveillance.

Following the current transformation of White Market into a syndication platform for community radio stations, the interview is also available for download as a standalone piece (two parts), in both WAV and MP3. You can find extra details about the content on each part and extra credits here.

Today is Netlabel Day and we are, of course, celebrating it properly. This week’s session featured exclusively music that was released for this year’s most exciting netlabel event, and we even had an interview with Manuel Silva, from M.I.S.T. Records, who is the main person behind the initiative.
