Software Freedom Podcast #3 about Free Software mobile phone communication

Recently I had the pleasure of being part of the 3rd incarnation of a new podcast series by the Free Software Foundation Europe: The Software Freedom Podcast.

In episode 3, Matthias and Bonnie of the FSFE are interviewing me about various high-level topics related to [the lack of] Free Software in cellular telephony, as well as some of the projects that I was involved in (Openmoko, Osmocom).

We've also touched the current mainstream / political debate about Huawei and 5G networks, where my position can only be summarized as: It doesn't matter much in which country the related proprietary software is being developed. What we need is Free / Open Source software that can be publicly audited, and we need a method by which the operator can ensure that a given version of that FOSS software is actually executing on his equipment.

Thanks to the FSFE for covering such underdeveloped areas of Free Software, and to use their podcast to distribute related information and ideas.
