Podcast releases new episode on cassette
A Canadian politics podcast is releasing a special episode on cassette only. Just fifty will be made. The show is 48 minutes long: based on our extensive knowledge of cassettes, it looks like after 24 minutes you’ll need to turn the tape over to keep listening.
The popular iOS and Android podcast app Pocket Casts has announced its mobile apps are now open source. “Now, everyone can help make it even better by reporting bugs, suggesting new features, and submitting Pull Requests for current issues.” It’s shared under the Mozilla Public License (FAQ).
In New Zealand, NZME is celebrating hitting 50 million annual downloads. The company is #1 in the New Zealand Podcast Ranker; and uses the iHeart brand in the country.
Open prefix analytics service OP3 has added a setup page, a prefix argument for a show’s GUID, and introduced API key management. Our OP3 useragent snapshot now uses our own API key; and the Podnews Daily podcast now includes the GUID. (Undocumented: the redirect-logs now includes the referer when present).
Descript lets you edit audio, video, and produce social video all in one appPaid content
Descript is already a great tool to edit your podcast: you edit your podcast just like editing a document, and you get access to AI-powered tools like Overdub, where you can correct words without having to go back into the studio; Studio Sound, which removes echo and background noise; and automated filler word removal, so “um”s and “er”s are, you know, like, totally removed.
Their latest version, Descript Storyboard - available for early access - adds even more video editing features. Multitrack video editing, AI-powered background removal and access to stock media, it’ll help you painlessly transform your podcast into video for websites like YouTube or Vimeo. If the future for podcasting is video, then Descript is the future of editing; and you can be one of the first to try it.
