It’s All About The Feeds!
We are pulling feeds and episodes in from all over the internet and as Pod Jockeys we mix them into a schedule for you. Turn off your old fashioned radio. Turn on this feed and keep listening. If you hit a show you do not like, just Fast Forward! job done!
Every episode here links back to the original feed – so you can follow them back and subscribe directly, comment, interact etc – please do do this – let podcasters know you appreciate their work, and that we introduced you to them!
No, we are not stealing other people’s content – we are directing you to it! You get a diverse schedule to listen to and podcasters get more hits and a bigger audience!
We add our own short audio to introduce a show then link you right to it.
We will be adding some kind of advertising/sponsorship (although you can always fast forward past it!), and podcasters may include what ever they like in their audio files. Everyone wins.
This idea started ages ago, but there was a bit of a shortage of content – not enough people had been making podcasts. So first we built a system to allow basic blogs to go through Text to Speech – so any blog can become a podcast! Now with more audio content becoming avilable and more portable devices (especially smart phones) to listen anywhere, anytime – it made sense to launch right at the front of this media wave.
Where is it Going?
This is the first station/channel – there will be others. Then we will add a personalised service, so you can set your own preferences!
We also encourage you to start your own podcast – it can be daily, weekly, monthly and anything from a few minutes to an hour. This can be done for virtually no cost, all it needs is your voice and your interest in your subject.
Dedicated to Openness
We don’t want to tie people in or limit them, we use open source standards where practicable – this means we have to do as little as possible! And you are free to come and go as you please.
