A full test: how do show notes display in podcast apps?

If you care about anything apart from the audio of the podcasts you subscribe to, you may want to check that the app you use gets a good rating for how it displays show notes.

"a podcast inspired by an Instagram account, covering the dating lives, drunken escapades, and makeup lines of superstar digital citizens"

Er, no. I don't think so.

Manton Reece - Audio in email is not a podcast

So correct. I fear we may lose the meaning of podcast, just as we lost the meaning of blog post.

How Long Should a Podcast Be?

1 min read

Podnews has a piece that many podcasters could usefully read. The bit that resonated was this quote from Roman Mars:

If you have 100,000 listeners and you edit out one useless minute you are saving 100,000 wasted minutes in the world. You’re practically a hero.

Not quite a hero, I can at least count myself a mini-hero.

The value of charts -- podcast or otherwise -- as a measure of worth, as opposed to merely popularity, is deeply suspect. In all kinds of rankings, people like what other people like, so popular stuff becomes more popular. Which is why I am highly ambivalent any time I so much as glance at podcast charts. Either people like what I'm doing, or they don't, but asking whether they like my output more or less than someone else's is pointless. Mostly.

An unrelated mystery: why would someone who has their own domain in their own name not want that domain to be more popular by, you know, publishing on it?
