Tips and tricks - with Podnews Live - where podcasting connects

The Tech Stuff - with The Podcast Standards Project

Phase six of the new podcast namespace is now closed. These new tags will be voted on for formalisation into the standard:

  • podcast:remoteItem - which allows other episodes or items to be referenced. Specifically, this is being used to reference “podsafe” music tracks, so that album art and v4v payment information is available to a podcast app.
  • List mediums - a method of producing playlists
  • podcast:acceptsGuests - a method of stating whether your podcast accepts guests (and therefore whether you welcome suggestions) or not. Likely to be withdrawn.
  • podcast:podroll - a way for a podcaster to recommend other shows in a list. (The Podnews Daily RSS feed supports this).Podnews
  • podcast:updateFrequency - to help a creator to indicate when episodes will be published. (The Podnews Daily RSS feed supports this).Podnews
  • podcast:podping - allowing a creator to indicate to apps and aggregators that a show is being updated on the podping network, and removing the need to poll the RSS feeds “just in case”.
  • podcast:valueTimeSplit - as in use already on the Podcasting 2.0 feed, a way to ensure that authors or musicians used in specific segments appear on the v4v payment.

Podcast Bestie, the Podcast
Podcast Bestie, the Podcast talks with Canadian podcaster Kattie Laur this week (here’s a transcript). She talks about how to get started as a freelance podcast producer.
Resurrection is new today - writer, producer, and host Dane Stewart spent over five years researching this podcast. It uncovers the extraordinary life of a forgotten playwright who died from AIDS in 1991, and takes listeners on a journey through queer history as it was lived by one man and pieced together by another, 30 years later.
