Title: The Plague

In this episode: There are two new major Linux-related pieces of hardware, Raspberry Pi 2 and the Ubuntu Phone. CrunchBang may yet live, and GnuPG is now well funded. We’ve got some great discoveries, we discuss how Free Software should be funded and there’s even a Neuron to vocalise.
