Commentators assume podcasting basically began with Serial.

Thu, 06 Apr 2017 09:07:17 -0800

A new article in The New Republic tries and fails, badly, to analyze contemporary podcasting. Dean assigns podcasting's early history to less than a full sentence ("The podcast form has been around since about 2004—it is kissing cousins with the iPod, in that way—but it was only in 2014 that the idea struck gold"), then leaps ahead. This lets readers skip the first decade+ of podcasting, the years between the form's appearance (the term was coined in 2004) and the eruption of Serial in 2014. Thaty does a disservice to pioneers, and also blinds us to the huge variety of invention that happened during that first wave.

The lovely gentlemen at Rebel FM have a (somewhat) annual tradition of recording one really big podcast at year's end covering all the wild and wonderful twelve months in video game music. Want to dive into over four hours of music with the occasional comment? Click here to choose the path of perpetual torment.(audio only, somewhat NSFW) Shall we dig deeper? The games are listed below in order of appearance, with youtube links (music only) attached when possible. DOOM The Banner Saga 2 Abzu Mirror's Edge: Catalyst Headlander The Turing Test XCOM 2 Civilization 6 Firewatch Quantum Break Bound No Man's Sky Furi Oxenfree The Flame and the Flood Virginia Tharsis VA-11 Hall-A Rez Infinite World of Warcraft: Legion Gears of War 4 Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Dishonored 2 Hitman Watch Dogs 2 The Division Battlefield One The Last Guardian This isn't the first music spectacular has put together. You can find all of them here. Even with the metric ton of music above there are naturally a lot of omissions, particularly amongst soundtracks from Japan. Including FFXV and Tokyo Mirage Sessions.) What else do you think they missed?

The Podcast Is the Product for Keith and the Girl Now closing in on 2,500 episodes — by their estimation, more than any other podcast — the early adapters' "Web radio" talk show debuted in 2005, before the word "podcast" even existed. A decade in, they live-stream hour-plus episodes five days a week, average a million downloads a month, boast more than 36,000 forum members, and say they know of at least 141 KATG tattoos.

What do we talk about when we talk about podcasting?

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 13:30:14 -0800

Nick Quah of Hot Pod briefly interviews Jesse Thorn about how the rest of the media world reports on podcasting. "The recent boom in podcast coverage that we've been seeing over the past few weeks, while wonderful, has also tended to gravitate around a few shows: Serial, Radiolab, Marc Maron, Comedy Bang Bang, etc. That coverage has also exhibited a tendency to frame podcasting as experiencing something of a renaissance, or revival. [But] this isn't the case. Podcasts have been steadily and quietly growing for the past decade [...] So why has the revival narrative stuck?"

Bill Simmons returns to ESPN today after a three-week suspension for calling Roger Goodell a liar. There's a lot of speculation over his next move.

Critical hit vs. productivity

Brian Posehn has started a new podcast where he plays Dungeons and Dragons with his friends: Nerd Poker. Is your thirst for D&D podcasts still unslaked, aural warrior? [Community creator] Dan Harmon's Harmontown podcast features weekly D&D goodness. Beer and Battle and Drunks and Dragons lay bare the association between pretending to be a half-dragon dwarf-mage and copious amounts of alcohol. The official Wizards of the Coast D&D podcast frequently features the creators of Penny Arcade, PvP, and less frequently Wiil Wheaton in podcasted games. Critical Hit, Death d4 Dishonor, and many more await in within the DnD tag at RPGPodcasts.

Circa 2005, Steve Jobs was introducing a new feature to iTunes and he called them podcasts! Unfortunately, during the LIVE presentation Adam Curry was not happy with his Mac!! Priceless!

From 'Sage on the Stage' to 'Guide on the Side'

Mon, 28 Nov 2011 05:23:53 -0800

A radical new idea is turning schools upside down. 'Flip the Classroom' is based on a simple concept: kids watch podcast video presentations of lecture material on their own time - at home. They then do the 'homework' at school, in an environment where the teachers can guide and support them, instructing on specific points as required. Colorado teachers Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams have been pioneering the technique, and their Learning4Mastery website is a fount of information on it. Watch their 20 minute podcast outlining how they got started in this and how they have refined the techniques over the years, and then browse this page of links to other sources of information, including The Flipped Class Network, a community of teachers using 'vodcasting' in the classroom.

The goal of the new site Audiofiles is to be the Longreads of public radio, providing an easy-to-use, well-cataloged guide to the best radio stories ever told. Some background.

Crossing Over

Sun, 30 Aug 2009 15:27:04 -0800

Transition, the latest from Iain Banks... or is it Iain M. Banks? Anyway, as well dead tree and audio, it's also a free podcast on Itunes... ...a novelty for so prominent a writer. Unfortunately the promotion of that caused a bit of a palaver re existing podcasters (read the comments). Sounds good anyway (review in the Independent). And if you need any more incentive to check it out, apparently there's bad sex in it... what would Jane think? (Previously)

Free (Audio) Books.

Thu, 08 Mar 2007 12:39:47 -0800

More and more authors are turning to podcasting to find their audiences after being rejected by traditional book publishers, it seems. Interested in hearing some of their stories for free (or if you're feeling generous, a suggested donation of $9.99)? Check out PodioBooks, where there's a tonne of free literature just waiting to be downloaded to your iPod.

Podcasting Resources

Sun, 24 Sep 2006 09:11:00 -0800

The popularity of podcasting has grown by leaps and bounds in the past year. Evan Williams, co-founder and former CEO of Pyra Labs, the makers of Blogger, is a co-founder of Odeo, a resource for podcast listeners and podcasters. More info here. Odeo is just one of many podcast directories; personally, my favorite is Podcast Pickle. Another great resource for audio content is, founded by Evo Terra. PodioBooks are serialized audio books which are made available in podcast format, many read by their authors. [more inside]

Take This Podcast to Havana!

Wed, 14 Dec 2005 19:55:20 -0800

Is your podcast being hijacked? The nature of RSS and podcast content makes it really easy for somebody to create new feeds based on somebody else's content and pass it off as the original through directories like Yahoo's or iTunes; then, of course, they potentially add advertising or use the built-up audience to extort the original podcaster. Podkeyword, the organization that has sparked concern about the issue, says they're not doing anything illegal or unethical; correspondence between Podkeyword and the guy whose podcast is at issue is available. [First pass legal take here, potential third-party retribution here; via.]

Latin Podcasting

Thu, 24 Nov 2005 12:30:21 -0800

Latin Podcasting is now available featuring recordings of neo-Latin colloquia saved as mp3 files. From Willard McCarty on the Humanist Discussion List: "So far there's only the Prima Salutatio of 3 minutes 21 seconds, but more is promised." They've already registered the project with the iTunes Podcast Directory and Bloglines. Future plans include adding captions.

Just a Fancy Fad?

Fri, 27 May 2005 07:48:00 -0800

While some squabble over who is the "Father of Podcasting" (see "Bickering among the 'Pod Squad' : Who is the 'Podfather"? And who cares?"), Seth Godin suggests that now is the time to start podcasting: "If your goal is to be an A list podcaster, today's the day to start. And invest. And persist."

On his blog at MSNBC
Will Femia states: "Speaking of shark jumping, ABC News kicks off the mainstreaming of podcasting."

Is podcasting a "fad", or likely a future mainstay in modern media?

Sounds Like Radio

Thu, 03 Mar 2005 16:37:38 -0800

Sounds Like Radio "casting you the best in new music; transcending oppressive style and genre restrictions; unleashing the world's musical underground". Sort of a music blog, presented as radio shows. There's all kinds of interesting music here, from all kinds of genres, most-all from unsigned acts. Surprisingly varied, and good.

"Podcasting" - Another newer diversion, audio feeds from RSS.
