Announcing Line Noise: the EFF Podcast

We've had many requests recently for an audio summary of EFF news. While we thought that dictating all the motions and filings, press releases, newsletters and blog postings that we file every month might make for an exciting six hour commute, audience research indicated that might be a little ... overstimulating. So instead we present Line Noise, a super-compressed, five minute audio summary of the current hot topics at EFF.

For this first podcast, we have a few words with Kurt Opsahl, the EFF attorney who successfully argued for online journalist's rights in the Apple v. Does case at the California Court of Appeal, information on the Sony BMG settlement, and what you can do to help in the AT&T case. We're still experimenting, so do let us know what and who you'd like to hear in future episodes.

You can find a Line Noise RSS feed for MP3 players here, as well as another version with Ogg Vorbis enclosures. And if you're a EFF-supporting podcaster yourself, don't forget we have a selection of public service announcements you can use in your own productions.
