Chosen Stories

A relationships podcast from Bonnie Cortez
chosenwithbonnie.libsyn.com http://chosenwithbonnie.libsyn.com/website

Neil Gaiman wrote, “Stories, like people and butterflies and songbirds’ eggs and human hearts and dreams, are also fragile things, made up of nothing stronger or more lasting than twenty-six letters and a handful of punctuation marks… But some stories, small, simple ones …… have outlasted all the people who told them, and some of them have outlasted the lands in which they were created.”

Each Chosen Story podcast highlights a particular love story. As a Life-Cycle Celebrant, I write and officiate weddings for couples looking for more than the traditional “I do.” You’ll hear one couple’s story every episode and learn what drew them together.

This podcast may use dynamic content insertion and uses a unique domain

Stats: Statistics are produced by Libsyn to help Chosen Stories to understand how many downloads it is getting, or how many people are listening. Your device’s IP address and useragent is used to help calculate this figure. Libsyn is IAB v2 certified.

Dynamic content insertion: Libsyn may use limited data that they know about you - the device you’re using, the approximate location you’re in, or other data that can be derived from this, like the current weather forecast for your area - to change parts of the audio. Chosen Stories may do this for advertising or for other forms of content, like news stories.

Chosen Stories is able to use the above tools since its podcast host or measurement company offers this service. It doesn’t mean that this individual podcast uses them, or has access to this functionality. We use open data.

This podcast uses a unique RSS domain. This podcast is the only one that we’re aware of which uses a domain of chosenwithbonnie.libsyn.com for its RSS feed. Domains are always visible to anyone who can see your internet traffic - your internet service provider, employer or even your government - even when you use HTTPS connections. If your podcast app uses the RSS feed directly, like Apple Podcasts, then you can be tracked as a listener to this podcast every time your phone checks for a new episode.

Here’s more about insecure links and unique domains.

Technical advice
Podfade warning: this podcast has not been updated in the past three months.
Podcast episode titles seem to include episode numbers, which is against Apple Podcasts guidelines and makes it harder to listen to your podcast on smart speakers. Here is what Apple wants to do, and why.
This podcast’s audio is not on an IPv6-enabled domain. This isn’t an issue for now, but might be in future. (We tested the initial domain of traffic.libsyn.com, which may be an analytics prefix.)

Directories
This podcast appears to be missing from Stitcher, iVoox, and iHeartRadio. We list all the podcast directories to be in.
