In this week's episode, Andrew Lih (Fuzheado) interviews Iolanda Pensa (Iopensa) on the status of Wikimania 2016 in Esino Lario, Italy. The discussion reveals what attendees can expect to find in the small town in the Lake Como region of northern Italy, and how the bidding team came up with a vision for the annual conference. They also talk about upcoming deadlines for conference programming and future of Wikimania.
Wikipedia Weekly is a spoken English-language audio podcast that discusses the Wikimedia movement, and has been produced intermittently since 2006. These new episodes mark a return to what we hope will be a semi-regular publication schedule and will be regularly featured in The Signpost.
We welcome a diverse range of participation and voices from all over the community. Ideas and feedback can be left on the talk page on the main Wikipedia Weekly page, and an active Facebook group has been popular in keeping the conversation going between episodes. We welcome community help in indexing the time code and topics discussed, to make for easier navigation of the content.
