I just really wish that they hadn't picked the company with the worst possible app for podcasts. I mean, they apparently want to be serious about podcasts while their app literally doesn't have a way to notify users of new episodes. I get that it probably isn't a big deal for music, but that's like the only purpose of a podcast app.

Yeah, I don't begrudge them doing what they need to do, but agreed. I also get the vibe Spotify probably has more control over them than they're letting on; aside from killing the Patreon RSS feed, Ben mentioned in the last episode of ALTH that Spotify has sent over new people to work over at LPN, which reads to me as producers to oversee things.

I have a feeling services like Luminary will be part of a bursted bubble and Google/youtube will scope up the remains.

That's why I--a person with a serious respiratory condition who insists on doing a podcast in my bedroom where half the time I'm trying to keep it down to not disturb--am still doing my thing, making sure the real stays in the art.

I wonder how that would work for a company like Gimlet that also has a partnership with Spotify and has hired producers to help with their podcasts before the partnership. Does Spotify bring in their own producers to produce or for quality control? That would be odd.

Almost certainly part of the contract they negotiated. Spotify probably would prefer to have their own producers, but Gimlet might be big enough to negotiate that out.

Spotify acquired the ringer mainly for their podcast network, reportedly for $250M. Itís gonna suck when all the ringerís shows go Spotify exclusive, but I wonít leave overcast.

Yeah, I think I've said before, but eh oh well...it seems like they got into a really bad spot as podcast advertising changed underneath them. They couldn't find an ad network after theirs got bought out by ATT and were essentially presented with the option to either find an exclusive partner or drastically cut back what they're doing.

I'm very glad that, regardless of how lovely the Spotify app is for podcasts, they at least still kept everything free.

Some episodes of I Was There Too are sort of like that but typically not indie films. The paul scheer ep, about the movie Meet Dave comes to mind

I've heard Indie Film Hustle dropped by some of my indie film maker friends, but I haven't had a chance to listen myself. It's apparently pretty much a class on how to get a movie made and exhibited.

I have listened to a few episodes of I've Got A Movie To Make which is Anderson Cowan's (formerly of Loveline) podcast about the making of his own movie last year, and his development of his next movie. It's a bit more focused on his films than general film making, though.

Since there's no thread I'll ask here, I'm trying to remember which episodes of What A Time To Be Alive had a couple jokes in them. One was if Steve Brule was any kind of handicapped or just weird, and it ended with them arguing that Steve Brule could legally be executed. The other was about kingdom hearts being too serious and how funny it'd be for them to have Goofy try to stop 9/11.

Is there a podcast where someone or some people just kind o go over the lore of, say, a video game world, or a tabletop RPG kind of thing? Specifically, I'm at work and I want to learn more about the Dark Sun setting in Dungeons and Dragons. Rather than finding time to read up on all of it, I am hoping there's a good podcast where I can just be told all this stuff. But not just Dark Sun, but also, say, Norrath from Everquest, or the setting in Shadowrun, etc.

Maybe I'll just make one myself if it doesn't exist.

"Whether the Earth was created in 7 days, or 7 actual eras, I'm not sure we'll ever be able to answer that. It's one of the great mysteries."







spotify as a podcast app sucks. no notifications, "last played" only shows the podcast itself, not the individual episode, and you can't tell which episodes you've listened to and which not.

e: but at least it remembers the position if you decide to quit before it ends. so yay.

Does Spotify let you download episodes, or is is streaming only? I use podcasts mostly in places where I don't get WiFi so streaming is right out.

Yes you can download episodes or playlists with podcasts in them.
I don't use spotify for podcasts, though. There's a lot of stuff I don't like about spotify, and it kinda boggles my mind it's so bad on a technical level and limited on a UI level.

Seems like that would cost money to develop, and what're you gonna do, not move all your podcasts over to them just because they lack basic functionality every app has had for years? Yeah, right!

The prognosis
is not good.




I host a podcast on Soundcloud but want the website features Squarespace adds. I have about 40 episodes. I am worried that if I upload my back catalog, then do a 301 redirect, the podcast GUIDs will not match and all my subscribers will redownload all my back episodes. I've talked to squarespace with a ticket and they've said there's no built in RSS GUID mirroring or anything.

I can't be the only person who's moved their podcast to Squarespace. Googling is almost impossible because every search thinks I mean GUIDE not GUID which gives me all the helpful guides about podcasting none of which address my concern.

Am I just hosed? Am I just not understanding how the system works?

Weird. I had a quick look on their twitter for you but didn't see any updates about it.
I'm guessing they're overwhelmed by news of the virus and they do have a podcast about that.

I enjoyed Red Panda Adventures by Decoder Ring Theatre. It follows Canada's greatest crime fighter in the 30s. Could be worth a try?

Is there a general paranormal podcasts thread? Iíve started listening to both Lore and Unexplained (basically the same thing produced on different sides of the Atlantic), and would like more recs.

I had been pointed at Last Podcast on the Left, but I donít want to get involved with Spotify just for one podcast.

What is an "actual play" podcast? I mean, I know what it is; it's where some folks sit around and play D&D or whatever. But what's the difference between an "actual play" podcast where they do it and just a podcast where they play D&D? I guess what I'm wondering is, what's the "actual" part referring to? Were there at some point a glut of fraudulent false-play podcasts?

It's mainly just an easy differentiator between "This is an RPG podcast, where we talk about RPG systems." and "This is an RPG podcast, where we play RPGs." I used to see it mainly being used by people who ran both type of podcast, as separate shows or just tagging individual episodes as Actual Play in the title, but it does seem a lot more widespread nowadays.
