Due to timezone fuckery and my Nana needing a chat app for her holiday to contact my family, we are now all using #Matrix and #Riot on a daily basis. Working perfectly of course, family is happy with it all, and I'm happy there's a little more FLOSS love out there (otherwise it would have been WhatsApp and I wouldn't have joined that one)

Destination Linux is probably the best Linux podcast. Family friendly, informative, a good balance of hosts between user and technical perspectives, and crucially no controversial nonsense to garner clicks.
