The Tech Stuff - with

  • Audio geeks might enjoy this sound design tutorial to help you recreate some of those classic 80s synth sounds from Kate Bush’s Running Up That Hill, seen in Web Audio Weekly. (Fans of that song might also enjoy The Pub Choir singing it in Podnews’s home town of Brisbane QLD, Australia - your Editor is sometimes in this choir, but not this time).

  • JustCast has added full integration for value-for-value with the Alby wallet. The company joins RSS·com last week.

  • Podcast Admin is new, and is an open-source podcast platform that runs on Google Cloud and Firebase, and coded using React. Features include configurable pre-roll and post-rolls, statistics and supports multiple users.

  • Boosts this week include 2222 sats from Blubrry’s Mike Dell (“I think I have the hang of this”); 1024 sats from Dave Jones besmirching Spotify once more (“When the Index first started people were roundly skeptical of there being 4.5 million podcasts. Now everyone wants to claim that number”); 3 sats from JAF2100 (“keep up”, they say, intruiguingly); 1,000 from Fail Better Media’s Georg; 10 from cristobal_mena; 10 from xavi_herrera; and a thumb-up emoji and 10 sats from alfcamacho.

Missing Pages
Missing Pages is the first original podcast from The Podglomerate, which reopens cold cases from the book world. It’s hosted by world-renowned literary critic and publishing insider Bethanne Patrick. Across its eight-episode debut season, Missing Pages uncovers the power struggles, mistaken identities, and unfathomably bad behaviour within the secretive world of book publishing. Each episode brings in authors, experts, publishing insiders, and a circus of NYC media elites to tell the real story; unfit for print.
Chameleon: Scam Likely
Chameleon: Scam Likely is brand new from Campside Media. Ordinary citizens all around the US are losing their life savings to scam callers… so the hunt is on for the shadowy multinational mob behind the con. Hosted by Yudhijit Bhattacharjee, it launches today.
