Castopod v1.0.0-alpha.68 is out! 🚀
(Minor bug correction 🐞)
This week in Podland, @samsethi and @jamescridland answer the question that's on everybody's lips: “How does Apple Podcasts compare with Podcast Index and their value 4 value cryptocurrency thing?”
(They also mention my Podcast Movement 2021 talk with Marilyn Zakhour and I am thankful for that.)
August 3rd! Podcast Movement 2021 starts today!
Thank you @adam for reminding everybody about my presentation: “Podcastindex: How to unleash your value thanks to the Podcast Namespace”
It is already online and available here:
All your podcasts hosted for 3€/mo: I successfully tested OVHcloud
VPS starter (3€/mo) + Debian 10 + CloudPanel
1.0.6 + @Castopod v1.0.0-alpha.67.
(Castopod is multi-tenant, CloudPanel allows several domain names: You may host as many podcasts as you want to on 1 VPS!)
I had bookmarked that clip from @evoterra’s Podcast Pontification.
“Big organizations [are] pulling the best parts of podcasting out of podcasting and into their own closed orbits and ecosystems.”

Castopod v1.0.0-alpha.65 is out! 🚀
(Import bug corrected)
Also, just to clear things up & sum up:
We ought to have a Youtube like - decentralized - commenting system under each episode, this means:
1. Having the same comments show up on all (listening) apps
2. Apps and hosting platforms would have to talk to each other. Which one keeps track of comments? Host? App? Both?
--> app users should be able to comment directly on an episode from their favourite app
3. Comments would have to be moderated
Is the podcast namespace brought by PodcastIndex (and already supported by many apps and services) that important? Listen NOW to @evoterra podcast now to understand why it is! ✊
Castopod v1.0.0-alpha.64 is out! 🚀
Add Podcast #activitypub actor and PodcastEpisode object with comments.
Let's keep open podcasting open! ✊
“It's like that's what's going on in the podcast world. Everybody's so accustomed silos and walled gardens. And that's how you make money is by capturing part of the industry not by serving it, that they can't decide, they don't know how to think about it.” @dave in Podcasting 2.0
Podcast cross-platform comments are now a real thing! ✊ 💬 🌎
@Castopod is already implementing them!
“But it seems like there was a lot of consensus for a reference implementation of #ActivityPub with the special Mastodon bit, so it would be compatible, a lot of this is based on a presentation that was given to us by @yassinedoghri” @adam with @aric and @dave on Podcasting 2.0
