Auxbus launches; NPR press the wrong button
May 1, 2019 · 3.3 minutes to read
“The first end-to-end podcast creation platform for brands”, Auxbus launches today. After a successful fundraising round, Auxbus includes a number of proprietary features including sound processing, studio-quality connections, automatic episode assembly and distribution to major platforms. Podcaster John Lee Dumas has joined the company as Chief Ambassador.
“We’re incredibly sorry for the inconvenience,” say NPR in a statement, after a configuration change messed up all the broadcaster’s RSS feeds, adding hundreds of episodes and kicking off a large number of downloads of seemingly random shows for many. One correspondent tells us: “They managed to download 61 episodes of Planet Money for me overnight, a podcast I have never subscribed to.” They’ve fixed the issue, and we’re told: “we’re already speaking to Podtrac as to how best address this.”
- It also means our data for NPR in our podcast pages is well and truly messed-up. That’ll take three days to work its way out of our system.
