I'm looking for good podcasts, and podcast sites. I feel I missed out on a trend here.

Ed (dali), Monday, 4 April 2005 08:06 (seventeen years ago) link

radio 4's "in our time" is podcast every week. although i haven't actually got round to podcasting it, i just download the mp3 every week.

i would like some good podcasts, too, though.

toby (tsg20), Monday, 4 April 2005 09:05 (seventeen years ago) link

Okay, I just started my own podcast: http://www.biglittleg.com/blog/wp-rss2.php. It's a first try, so be nice. I'm going to try to do this once a week.

Of course, I'm looking for suggestions for other podcasts as well.

Guymauve (Guymauve), Monday, 4 April 2005 14:34 (seventeen years ago) link

I've downloaded that, I'll listen on the way to work tomorrow.

Ed (dali), Monday, 4 April 2005 16:25 (seventeen years ago) link

Is a podcast like an mp3 mix or something? I haven't been following this.

Alex in SF (Alex in SF), Monday, 4 April 2005 16:29 (seventeen years ago) link

Basically it's a radio show or mix distributed on mp3. I thought it was a bit of a daft name really, but it's become very popular and not just for music, there seems to be some speech out there too.

Ed (dali), Monday, 4 April 2005 16:34 (seventeen years ago) link

Podcasts can be pretty much anything, from straightforward music to talk to art to, well, wherever you want to go with it. Try http://www.ipodder.org or http://www.podcastalley.com for more. Not strictly for ipods or the like, but they're darn convenient that way.

Guymauve (Guymauve), Monday, 4 April 2005 16:36 (seventeen years ago) link

Another couple good places to find podcasts are at PocastHost.com, or PodcastAlley.com. PodcastAlley uses a "rating system", and PodcastHost has a searchable database and aggregated text, right on the site.

Grab iPodderX Lite. It'll just grab the feed when you subscribe. I'm still in the trial (and error) stage with it, but it seems to work for people. Word Press is sometimes a bit fiddly with these things (and I'm using a non-WP template which makes XML a problem to read sometimes). A new one up Sunday.

Guymauve (Guymauve), Monday, 4 April 2005 17:12 (seventeen years ago) link

This actually looks like it would be kind of fun to do, as my friends are permanently in need of Taste Correction and this would allow me to save somewhat on CDRs. But isn't bandwidth kind of prohibitively expensive? I mean, you're basically serving a gigantic MP3, right?

I've now made 14 podcasts, ranging from 30 minutes to an hour, in locations from Macau and Japan to Lisbon, Edinburgh and New York. Basically, everywhere I go (and I'm lucky enough to travel a lot) I mumble into an old Fujifilm F601 and make a new radio programme documenting the sounds and atmospheres of where I am.

Super Cub (Debito), Thursday, 4 August 2005 11:42 (seventeen years ago) link

No. Podcasting is one of the most disappointing memes of the decade, along with "war chalking"

I can't go a single day without someone saying "podcasting" but I can't find a single podcast worth listening to.

there are plenty of excellent podcasts, but im having a hard time finding good non-music programs. the two im subscribed to havent been updated in months

fe zaffe (fezaffe), Thursday, 4 August 2005 23:35 (seventeen years ago) link

Exactly. Of the six I posted above, I think only three are still being updated. A lot of them seem to give up once they realise it's not going to make them the next John Peel.

I just got my husband set up with this stuff--got him a little flash-based mp3 player he can take to the gym after he syncs up his shows. I put ipodder on his computer and subscribed him to Al Franken's show on Air America and NPR's On The Media--he's a big talk radio fan. So I can't really speak to any music stuff, haven't played around with it enough.

This one by Digiki has been getting some press recently, despite only having one installment so far: http://www.maudevintage.com/castellane/digiki/polypunk/polyfeed.xml ( actual file is http://www.maudevintage.com/castellane/digiki/polypunk/POLYPUNK001.mp3 )

Hopefully he'll keep it up.

Listening to podcasts at work is better than listening to the same twenty prerecorded CDs our college radio station broadcasts over summer break.

So what makes for a good podcast? And when would you listen to it? I've been tempted to do one, just to see how it would work, but I have no idea what it is that makes people download these things. And I believe that Tombot might have a point up there, that more people are probably producing these things than listening to them.

Pleasant Plains /// (Pleasant Plains ///), Friday, 30 September 2005 22:17 (sixteen years ago) link

Hmm, I guess anything that makes audio compelling for an extended period of time: a charismatic personality, a narrative, a bunch of good songs, etc.

Listen to them... in the car? On the subway? It's basically surrogate radio for an iPod. Not so exciting, but still useful.

Confounded (Confounded), Friday, 30 September 2005 22:23 (sixteen years ago) link

If you like sermons, there are many churches that put out their weekly sunday sermons. At the itunes store just scroll through the list of religious ones. I occasionally listen to Ref. Pres. Theological Seminary or Tenth Presbyterian Church.

Also Probe ministries ( http://www.probe.org/ ) does a pretty good and informative talk show about various topics in Christianity or society.

There some okay science ones like "Science and Society"

I've also found a few language ones. Depending on which language you want to learn you can search through itunes store directory. I got one called "HESS Chinese survial guide."

Quentin Tarantino has a brand new podcast in which he picks movies from his personal VHS collection and discusses them with his cohost Roger Avary (the co-storywriter of Pulp Fiction). It's called "The Video Archives Podcast," named after the Manhattan Beach, CA video rental store Tarantino and Avary worked at in the '80s. All of the VHS tapes in question are in fact from the stock of the store, which ended up in Tarantino's possession.

One episode up so far, which was pretty good/promising. If you've heard QT's episodes on the "Pure Cinema Podcast" you will be familiar with his rhetorical style.

Josefa, Thursday, 21 July 2022 15:38 (two months ago) link

I almost wish I had a long commute situation at the moment just to get deep into '500 songs...'

MaresNest, Thursday, 21 July 2022 15:51 (two months ago) link

I know it's The Beatles, but 'Nothing is Real' is two affable, dry Irish dudes talking very diaristically and in great detail about certain periods or moments in their career.

MaresNest, Thursday, 21 July 2022 15:55 (two months ago) link

That 500 Songs podcast is a fucking monster. The most recent episode, on "All You Need Is Love," is nearly four hours, and there isn't a single wasted moment or unnecessary tangent. And I love the unexpected connections he makes. Sun Ra? He's mentioned in the episode on Wynonie Harris's "Good Rockin' Tonight." Coleman Hawkins? He's in the one on "That'll Be The Day." Dexter Gordon? The "Eight Miles High" episode spends at least five minutes on him. Iannis Xenakis? Check out the "Love Is Strange" episode.

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Thursday, 21 July 2022 15:55 (two months ago) link

I've found with "500 Songs" that the longer the episode, the better. Not that any episode is bad, but the earlier shorter ones are more linear and a bit more dry. Seems as if the host consciously decided to switch up his style and do epic-length episodes that take in all manner of background details and relevant digressions.

Josefa, Thursday, 21 July 2022 16:09 (two months ago) link

He loves his Beatles, but of course has the excuse that they are objectively very significant ;-)

Noel Emits, Thursday, 21 July 2022 16:15 (two months ago) link

The biographical stuff about Leon Theremin / Lev Termen leading (for like 30 minutes) into the Good Vibrations episode was fascinating and I laughed at the payoff when he finally gets around to the song.

Noel Emits, Thursday, 21 July 2022 16:24 (two months ago) link

After initially jumping around to my favorite songs/artists, I'm forcing myself to listen to all the 500 Songs episodes chronologically and it's fantastic. Some of my favorite revelations were how the degradation of 78 rpm records led to them being trashed by radio stations in the late 40s when 33s and 45s came about and how that in turn erased the cultural memory of so much music created pre-1950. Was also fascinated to learn about the musician strike of the early 40s that led to only vocalists being able to record on majors and how that in turn reset expectations of the general audience to expect music featuring vocalists vs. lead trumpet players or whoever. Also, the story of "Sh-Boom" and The Chords was just infuriating/heart-breaking.

bookmarkflaglink (Darin), Thursday, 21 July 2022 17:45 (two months ago) link

Chronological is the way to go, imho. There are SO MANY threads that tie together throughout the series. And the 78 thing reminded me of the account of Carl Perkins seeing a copy of his first release. "That's not a record! That thing's tiny! No one's gonna buy that!" It was the first time he'd seen a 45.

It's turned me on to so much music that I kept meaning to catch up with but that I never seriously investigated. I recently got compilations by Johnny Ace (which has a CD of his work as a sideman, with incredible early sides by B.B. King and Bobby "Blue" Bland), Johnny Otis, and Roy Orbison, and so far his recommendations as to which CDs to check out (in his show notes) have been stellar.

More than a few times he's said something where I thought, "No, I think you're wrong there"...and then he backs it up. I'm mainly thinking of his (accurate) assertion that rock 'n' roll did not come from the blues.

Montgomery Burns' Jazz (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Thursday, 21 July 2022 18:38 (two months ago) link

I am enjoying this 500 songs podcast, thanks all of you for the recommendation. Following TTEG’s post I’m slightly disappointed that (as of the Ruth Brown episode at least) he hasn’t asserted that rock ‘n’ roll did not come from the blues, instead pointing out a lot of direct and indirect ways rnr did come from the blues. Perhaps I have a challop along those lines awaiting me in the future, I hope do, I do love a challop.

Tim, Sunday, 24 July 2022 17:48 (two months ago) link

Haven't heard his theory yet but I do know taht the Hillbilly Boogie I've heard sounds like a less amped r'n'r 10 years early. & that comes from country and boogie woogie and other jazz. I also hear roots in other forms of folk music. Think I hear echoes in some of the Irish stuff I have from the 20s the material that was recorded by Police and Fire Brigade bands in New England since recording technology was there before Ireland.

Stevolende, Sunday, 24 July 2022 18:03 (two months ago) link

I think that’s all true, just that blues is in there too (directly and indirectly, I think the dude’s point is it’s more indirectly than is sometimes imagined). This isn’t a problem, or (as far as I can tell) wrong, as I say I was perversely hoping for a stronger challop.

Tim, Sunday, 24 July 2022 18:21 (two months ago) link

does he just mean the 12-bar genre bc blues tonality basically defines all of pop/rock. I'll listen to it later

A few contentions in this thread. No idea who this Tracer Hand is with the embarrassing posting style. Who invented rock and roll?

Tracer Hand, Sunday, 24 July 2022 21:39 (two months ago) link

The argument isn't that there is no blues in rock & roll music, it's that rock & roll evolved from jump blues (and to a lesser extent western swing) rather than the delta blues, which wouldn't have any real influence until picked up by the blues revivalists in the early 60s.

of course there is a larger question about "what is the blues?" but don't think we are going to resolve that one here.

link.exposing.politically (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Sunday, 24 July 2022 22:02 (two months ago) link

OK this podcast sounds good, subscribed & queued

(I think of blues as a bunch of harmonic things I don't have the vocab for which make pop/rock/jazz tonality distinct from e.g. mozart but that's a whole other thing)

(delta blues as the real blues was a 50s/60s folk/rock scenes effort i think? - nothing against delta blues but they made everyone think blues was no fun ever since)

Left, Sunday, 24 July 2022 22:40 (two months ago) link

Yeah I’m reading the new Bob Stanley book about pre-rock pop music and he points out the fact - which is obvious but I hadn’t quite put it together before - that the original style 1920s blues was largely led by headstrong, funny, sometimes outrageous female singers, and that the “lone man with an acoustic guitar” type of blues came afterwards (mostly 1930s).

Josefa, Sunday, 24 July 2022 23:01 (two months ago) link

some of that "pop" stuff was pretty queer & sometimes filthy even for today. some insufficiently acknowledged rock roots there surely

I had to discover bessie smith through jazz since the blues fans I knew only cared about the bleakest tape hiss guitar dues (who can be great but far less fun or danceable)

Very interested to hear Andrew Hickey talking about the category of birds in terms of central to category and fuzzy edge . It's an understanding I remember reading about in George lakoff's book on category Women, Fire and Dangerous Things and one I liked. I think its ascribed to Lotfi Zadeh and I've wondered if it was something that many o00ther people understood. Certainly shapes my understanding of things in terms of category. Though I think in that book he talks about archetype to fuzzy edge.
So did wonder is it something that other people have come across before. Since Hickey seemed to refer to it without thinking he needed to give it much explanation.

There has been a stink kicked up this week after Ben Shapiro turned up unannounced at the Podcast Movement industry event, the event apologised, then one of the organisers tweeted his disagreement with the apology. There's a summary here:


What pisses me off about events like PM is that they are so nakedly sales/ad-focused that any coverage of art/craft/culture/criticism is apparently absent. Here is the start of their blog post on Shapiro Day for example

The first full day of PM22 has been packed with insights – more below. In-person attendees, be sure to join us at Lit Lounge for this evening's party sponsored by Wondery. We’ve got free specialty cocktails, custom-printed podcast merch, and a DJ until 11:00.

“Live, host-read ads perform the best,” according to After These Messages, a new Sounds Profitable study presented yesterday by Tom Webster. Quality scripted or programmatic ads work almost as well, and Webster recommends mixing host and announcer-read ads in a campaign. The important thing is that the ad fits the show – do not “violate the listeners’ earballs.” The research is free to download.

Put a bit of your content on TikTok as soon as possible, suggested Gabriel Soto in this morning’s Edison Research keynote. A third of Americans have used the app at this point. Another key takeaway, louder (quieter?) for those in the back: We need to take care of the podcast ad experience to avoid driving audiences away. Eardrum-rupturing ad volume has got to go.
The idea that this event, which as you can see stands for nothing apart from making money, will be some sort of bulwark against fascism, is obviously laughable, but it's a nice illustration of how capitalist media are by nature inclined to be friendly to fascists (and not to socialists)

Well looks like they've taken a side, what a surprise.

This week's podcast industry shitshow has arrived

NEW: podcast companies are buying millions of listens through auto-playing episodes populated in free mobile games. iHeart, the top podcast publisher on Podtrac, has bought around 6 million unique downloads per month since 2018 https://t.co/5P4xldUvdI

am becoming a big fan of Jamie Loftus. she has a podcast about spiritualism and one about Mensa.. i think she's brilliant.

she read every Cathy strip ever published and then did a podcast about it with actors re-enacting selecting strips, interviews w Cathy Guisewite etc
