Rivalry with LugRadio Edit

The Linux Action Show has a friendly rivalry with the British podcast LugRadio. Jokes about each other are often traded back and forth. A frequent source of humor is LugRadio's use of colorful language, in contrast to The Linux Action Show's reluctance to do so. Each show has featured the other's hosts as a guest.Template:Fact
