This NYT article about Curry’s Sirius deal (behind a bullshit registration wall, cyberpunk/cyberpunk works fine) includes a bit of distressing stats about KYOU:
More than 200 people have already submitted podcasts to the station, whose programming will be simultaneously streamed over a Web site for listeners outside the San Francisco area.
I’m disappointed in the community, in the mad rush to be someone else’s bitch for free. I have no problem with whoring yourself out but for god’s sake get them to leave an envelope on the nightstand that pays you off for the value of your lost self-respect. Otherwise you are just a slut, giving it away for free without even getting cab fare home.
Update: Why am I being so negative? On second thought, if there are ~5000 podcasters, this suggests that 96% of podcasters didn’t give it away. That makes me feel much better.
