We started on 30 May 2017, and have been (almost) daily ever since. On our second birthday, thank you to the many people and companies who have supported us on our journey - and to those who might be considering it for the future. Anyway, it’s our birthday, but we’re giving you the present: see below.

Back for a new season, Somebody Somewhere follows former prosecutor David Payne and former CNN producer Jody Gottlieb as they investigate a double homicide in a homeless encampment in Seattle. It’s the first podcast from WarnerMedia Podcast Network that isn’t associated with an existing TV, video or digital brand. (WarnerMedia Podcast Network / RainStream Media / knit)
A new season of By Association started today. A narrative show about soccer/football and the human connection behind the beautiful game, the first episode tells the story of refugee footballer Hakeem al-Araibi, and the global campaign that saved his life. (Omny Studio)
Rock guitarist David Gilmour has announced a podcast, called The David Gilmour Podcast. According to the announcement, each episode will focus on specific guitars played by Gilmour on some of the most well-known Pink Floyd songs ever written. Each podcast will also be slightly too long, contain relaxed rock guitar playing while Clare Torry adlibs a wordless tune over the top of it, and if you listen while watching The Wizard of Oz, man, it’s, like, amazing. None of this is true. (Libsyn)
Robert Plant has announced a podcast too. Called Digging Deep with Robert Plant it’s a series of personal reminiscences, and debuts June 3rd. (Libsyn)

More tedious birthday information

Our first update had six pieces of news, including why we can’t play music on podcasts, a new development from Whooshkaa, and an update for Castro: so the podcast industry sure has changed. The first to have been captured by the Internet Wayback Machine shows a garishly bright, and super-simple, website.

To celebrate our second birthday, we’ve laptop stickers for everyone. Send your postal address to (no, wait, you’re too late. Sorry.) Support us for more of this stuff in the future.
