phpBB Weekly is a live podcast that I (webmacster87, aka Fountain of Apples) record every Saturday to talk all about phpBB. Every week on the show, I discuss the latest news about phpBB, and I often give a tutorial about a certain aspect of phpBB. For example, past episodes have included tutorials on everything from finding your way around the new phpBB3 Permissions Panel to what ranks are and how to use them. Also, phpBB Weekly occasionally features exclusive interviews with actual phpBB team members. And every week, I select a MOD and Style of the Week to highlight on the show.
However, what makes phpBB Weekly unique is that its format is similar to a call-in talk show. The show is recorded live every Saturday at Noon Eastern time (that's 1600 UTC) on TalkShoe
, which is a website that allows people to listen live while the show is being recorded. In addition, anyone who registers with the TalkShoe website can participate in a live chat room during the show, or even call in and be on the show. What this means is that every week, I invite listeners to call in to the show to ask questions about phpBB, discuss phpBB, or to get support for problems that they're having with phpBB. I also do my best to read questions out of the chat room for users who don't have the capability to call in. This show is a great unofficial resource to get advice and assistance with phpBB.
If you want to find out more about the show, check out the phpBB Weekly
website. There you can listen to past episodes, learn about what's on tap for upcoming episodes, and also find out how you can join in live. There's also links there which allow you to subscribe to the podcast feed, and where you can e-mail in your questions if you aren't able to come in live on the show. Future editions of this newsletter will include the show notes of a recent episode of phpBB Weekly that you can go listen to, so stay tuned!
