TWiRT 388 - Open Broadcaster with Rob Hopkins

Low-budget and community broadcasters are using free, open-source software to run many aspects of their broadcast operations.  Take a listen to CJUC-FM, for example.  Using local PCs or cloud-based operations, community stations can air quality programming, with either local or remote hosts. They can also fulfill both the letter and spirit of emergency broadcast requirements.  Audio and video streaming are important aspects as well. Rob Hopkins, founder of Open Broadcaster, joins Chris and Kirk to talk about the possibilities and and what Yukon broadcasters are doing right now with this technology.
