The Other Stories

An arts podcast from Ilana Masad
theotherstories.orghttp://theotherstories.org

The Other Stories showcases new, emerging, and struggling writers. They read their fiction aloud, and we interview them about their writing life and about the particular piece of fiction they read. We compose a unique musical score for each individual piece of fiction. Music to your ears - literally.

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

Stats: Statistics are produced by Libsyn to help The Other Stories to understand how many downloads it is getting, or how many people are listening. Your device’s IP address and user agent 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. The Other Stories may do this for advertising or for other forms of content, like news stories.

The Other 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 theotherstories.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.

Information for podcasters

Technical advice
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 iVoox, Luminary, and iHeartRadio. We list all the podcast directories to be in.
