HNpod is currently hosted by Michael Mahemoff, having been started by Alex Muir.
Alex's original rationale behind the site is below
I want to listen to a half-hour podcast discussing the week's top HN stories.
There isn't one.
So I'm making it.
I want three interesting, opinionated hackers (HN members, founders, whoever) round a table (actually on Skype) talking tech, startups, and geekery.Click here if you are an interesting, opinionated hacker
If we were recording today, we would be discussing:
- Light Table - an IDE concept about to get Kickstarted
- Facebook's Instagram acquisition - where is it headed now?
- Is Kickstarter about to hit the mainstream?
- And anything else that surfaces in our chat. It won't be heavily structured.
Me - Alex Muir
I'm a web developer and entrepreneur. I have spent the last three months working in Scotland, Romania, Budapest, Berlin and London. I am from Manchester, UK.
If it turns out that I'm not the man to run this show, then I'll bow out and sign the site over to someone more suitable. I want the show, not the glory - but I'll take the risk and get the ball rolling.
If you're interested in Skyping in and recording a show, leave me your details.
