Podcast Moment from the Early Days

DSCN3152

Chuck Tomasi sent me this photo that he found from the first New Media Expo (called I think the Podcast and Portable Media Expo or something like that.) There are four early podcasters visible in the shot. I’m not sure about the cats in the background, if you can identify them let me know. Cool, no?

Feed Migrations

When you have over 150 podcasts in your subscription list, sometimes it can be tricky to notice when you aren’t getting one. Last week, it finally dawned on me that I hadn’t heard an episode of This Week in Tech in quite a while. I checked, and sure enough the feed had changed. I love Leo and his many shows. I’ve been subscribed to TWiT since the first episode but I swear this must be the fourth or fifth time this has happened with the feed.

There have been so many web pages and feeds in the Leosphere that it just leaves me kind of confused. Especially on the servers that you control, can’t you leave a redirect in place please Leo? Feeds that just sort of stop are a drag, and even if you leave a post that says “this feed is changing” users may not see it. I tend to user iPodderX/Transistr in “set it and forget it” mode. I only open the UI when I am changing things, which is when I happened to find that the TWiT feed wasn’t working anymore. Even though my present feed is different than what I started with, there are 304 redirects from every one I’ve ever had to the present one. Do your busy fans a favor and leave us a forwarding address when you move, please.

Suggested Listening

Here’s some things I have listened to lately that I really liked:

Actually I’m still listening to this one and am really liking it – Chuck Tomasi has an interview with Leo Laporte.

My brother has a podcast and he’s done a great variety of stuff. For some reason, the show that has tickled me the most has been his odd/bad music show. I listened to it in O’Hare airport on my last Chicago trip and was giggling all the way to the gate.

Elvis Mitchell, my newest interview hero, interviews Christopher Nolan about the new Batman movie. I loved this interview especially, and I love every episode of this show so this is good even above that baseline.

DVDTalkRadio did an interview with John Waters. Waters makes me laugh in everything he ever does, be it interview or book or movie or Simpson apperance. This interview rocked and although I didn’t really need selling, it has definitely sold me a copy of the Dirty Shame DVD.
