I'd like to participate. I worked as Maemo's "Debmaster". Essentially I helped developers package their software for the Maemo platform. I can discuss how Nokia worked to integrate Debian and the community. Maemo's current status is essentially dead, it has been turned completely over to the community for maintenance, but Nokia is not developing Maemo anymore and is focusing on MeeGo.
For other derivatives, you may want to see if you can contact people like Matt Zimmerman from Ubuntu, people from Crunchbang, Linux Mint, or other distros like grml. I know that there has been some interest expressed on this list for a podcast like this so I am certain you'll be able to find some people to participate.
