OSR082 Zurück am Headset und ein bißchen meta [DE]

Viele andere Dinge fordern gerade unsere Aufmerksamkeit, von daher haben wir etwas gebraucht um mal wieder eine Episode aufzuzeichnen. Das bringt auch uns hin und wieder zum Nachdenken warum man das hier macht und wie man es am besten machen könnte. Vielleicht könnt Ihr als Hörer ja ein paar Punkte davon verstehen, oder zumindest nachvollziehen. Abseits von Metathemen gibt es noch ein/zwei Newsmeldungen und im Nachgang zu dieser Episode gibt es noch ein paar Veröffentlichungen von Gesprächen die Konrad auf der WikiCite 2017 führte. Viel Spaß!
