This past Tuesday saw the publication of episode 136 of the Retrobits podcast, in which host Earl Evans speaks with KansasFest attendee Ivan Drucker about KansasFest 2010. The interview, which runs 3:41 – 30:25 of the 32-minute podcast, talks about Mark Simonsen’s keynote speech, the annual HackFest programming competition, the discussion panel on Apple’s growing divide between users and programmers, the Apple III, and more.

Although no substitute for being there, Ivan’s enthusiasm about the show, even two months later, captures the excitement with which KansasFest inspires its attendees. The episode is available in MP3 format from the Retrobits site and from iTunes.


Also, way back on July 31, episode 169 of the weekly RetroMacCast podcast spoke with Mike Maginnis about the previous week’s KansasFest. That show can be found on iTunes. Each of these podcasts also covered KansasFest 2009, and it’s great to see their continuing interest in our community.

And, as always, the September issue of Juiced.GS, published last week, features a write-up of KansasFest and its sessions.
