About this episode

Your hosts

  • Reddark — These subreddits are going dark or read-only on June 12th and after. Some already are. Click here to find out why.
  • Lemmy 🐀 — A link aggregator and forum for the fediverse Lemmy is similar to sites like Reddit,, or Hacker News: you subscribe to forums you're interested in, post links and discussions, then vote, and comment on them. Behind the scenes, it is very different; anyone can easily run a server, and all these servers are federated (think email), and connected to the same universe, called the Fediverse.
  • Install with Docker - Lemmy Documentation — Make sure you have both docker and docker-compose
  • Install with Ansible - Lemmy Documentation — Follow the instructions on the Lemmy-Ansible repo.
  • Mlem — The Lemmy client for iOS.
