I listen to a lot of audio every day. I know I have too many podcasts in my subscription listings, perhaps because I’m pulling down content by using two podcast apps (Pocketcasts and Player.fm).
Here is a look at the top of my podcatcher from a typical Friday morning where two hours of audio content normally appears in the space of one screen one my Samsung Note 9. I will hear these hosts in my earbuds during my morning and evening commutes and their ideas often fill break times throughout the day.
I wonder if you listen to any of these shows.
Ideas from CBC Radio.
Emily Bell, director of the Tow Centre for Digital Journalism at Columbia University, continues her exploration of a civic media manifesto. She’s offering an ambitious, imaginative, and radical idea. Some of Emily’s ideas offer a book end to Adrian Weckler’s current podcast in which he riffs about the need for better social etiquette on Twitter.
I support CBC Ideas by clicking on the affiliate links inside the CBC Shop. I try to buy products from Amazon by going through the CBC shop first. I reckon I push $1 a month to CBC that way.
Daily Tech News Show
I’m concerned that recent graduates from our creative media design degree could end up as contractors monitoring hate speech on YouTube and Facebook. Tom Merritt, Lamar Alexander, and Sarah Lane break down the issues on DTNS 3704.
I support DTNS with a$2 monthly Patreon subscription.
How about a two hectare surf park in Australia? It generates 1000 ocean-like waves per hour. Andrew Ross, the founder of URBNSURF, shares his origin story, his inspiration, and the challenges faced in turning the dream into a reality. Dublin is planning a watersports park and its advocates face similar challenges.
I got Steve Glaveski's most recent book for free via Kindle Unlimited.
The Daily from the NYT
I’m a Pennsylvania voter and the issue that could swing voters to re-elect Donald Trump is fracking. I don’t like fracking and I believe many Pennsylvanians don’t favour it either. But fracking, coal, and steel are jobs for many in the State. If you show up and promise to ban fracking and coal mining by executive order, you won’t carry Pennsylvania.
I will support The Daily with $4 monthly when the New York Times headline writers improve their copywriting skills.
Go listen to James Cridland if you’ve any interest in producing or promoting online audio. He’s the real deal.
Support Podnews.net by giving $4 monthly.
My Podcasting Album
I plan to share snippets from my subscriptions as part of the podcasting album I started on Flickr in 2006. You can get updates that I make to that album by following my blog’s RSS feed.
And you can also listen to occasional audio clips produced in support of my daily workflow in Ireland.
