Trade Secrets: hear the show again

LISTEN · · Updated · 3.7 minutes to read
  • One of the original podcasts, Trade Secrets with Dave Winer and Adam Curry, has returned to podcast apps. The podcast ran from Sept 2004 to Jan 2005, and includes discussions about the name “podcasting”, iPodder, the open nature of the medium, and old-fashioned cellphones. With the permission of both Dave and Adam, to preserve our history we’ve given it a modern RSS feed, so you can listen in your own podcast app. (It’s also available in any new podcast app that uses the Podcast Index).

  • We need to do a better job, says Elsie Escobar, of keeping our own historical records. She has written a post focusing on four Black podcast creators. Meanwhile, the EarBuds Podcast Collective - which celebrates its sixth anniversary this week - shares podcasts about Black history.

  • Audio storytelling podcast network Realm sees the best marketing opportunities for new shows in dynamically-inserted ads in their own network - which work almost ten times better than ad swaps, the company says. The team will do a Reddit AMA tomorrow in /r/podcasting.
