Perhaps I should start with an introduction. :) My name is Chris
I'm a long-time Fedora user, and have worked at Red Hat for 10 years
almost. I'm co-organizer of PyCon CZ (pycon.cz, CfP is still open! :)
and main organizer of DevConf.cz (CfP coming soon!) and other events
focused on open source communities. My current role at Red Hat is, or
at least what I call myself, Community Developer.
I have wanted to for a very long time find a way to contribute back to
Fedora community through other means than testing and bug reporting.
I'm also a huge fan of interview podcasts and have wanted to give
creating my own a shot for a long time now. When FLOCK 2016 was
announced, i thought it would be awesome opportunity to knock both out
at once and shine some light on the incredible community contributors
in the process!
I have queued up about 10 interview episodes like the one I've posted
here, ready (or nearly ready) to go online. My hope was that I'd be
able to work with the team here to get each published as an
accompanying post to the community blog. I was thinking of releasing 1
Thanks for your time and consideration!

Hi Chris!! So sorry on the delayed response on getting back to you on
all of these.
I just got through your interview with Brian and I have Jonathan and
Redon's interview on the queue now. So, uhhh, wow!!! These are awesome!!
Seriously! I don't know how I missed these! These are super insightful
interviews and I think you did a really awesome thing to capture these
at Flock. Plus you've got some catchy beats in there too. :)
So, to begin, yes! A post for each interview on the Community Blog would
be an awesome idea and I think it's definitely something we can sustain.
Have you been publishing announcements / posts for these on a personal
blog? If you have, you could pop a draft into the Community Blog and we
could use that as the base. Otherwise, the intro you used in the
description for each episode should be enough, I think.
I really want to help bring these greater exposure ASAP. I'll go ahead
and post some of them to social media right now. But yes, I definitely
want to help you share these with the Fedora community. You should have
authorship privileges in the Community Blog to draft an article - please
let me know if that is not the case.
Again, so sorry it took so long for you to get an answer here! This got
buried in my email last month... guess I really need to set up filters
