About

Hacking Culture is a show that explores the art and science of hacking, with a focus on Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (FLOSS). Hosted by public radio veteran Dr. Matthew Tift, the show features people and organizations that engage in the practice of hacking, defend software freedom, or seek to understand the practice of hacking. It explores how the free software movement promotes democracy.

Many people have no idea about the alternatives to proprietary software, so this show seeks to make the free software movement as accessible and appealing to as broad an audience as possible, overthrow misconceptions regarding the practice of hacking, and suggest how free software could better serve society.

Additionally, this website is intended to be a resource for people that want to learn more about the free software movement and information is added regularly. Consequently, it includes information about people, organizations, and books that have been discussed on the show, but also people, organizations, and books that have not.
