The OKCast is a weekly open source blog and podcast with the goal to explore, connect, use and inspire open knowledge projects around the world to develop the public commons, improve organization and government transparency and communication, and advocate for social justice and social activism.

The OKCast is a work of love (meaning it’s all volunteer). It’s regularly hosted by @AlexFink, joined by Shannon Evans, Kelsey Wiens, Jeremia Kimelman, Lily Bui, David Carroll, and Bill Bushey. Music for the podcast was developed and performed by the incredible Eddy Kwon, Jack Bogard, and Josh Fink. Music for podcasts prior to November 13, 2014 was created by Josh Fink. Logo and other branding for the site was created by design genius Danielle Rhodes. Extra polish around the edges (with spit polish coming soon) provided by Justin Schell and Blake Johnson.

The OKCast is supported by:
