For most of the day, I've written a history of podcasting in the UK. It's been fascinating to discover what's on the Web Archive. Omissions/Corrections very, very welcome. https://podnews.net/article/history-uk-podcasts
YouTube has just launched its first podcast. It was nowhere in any of the podcast apps; but I just put it into the Podcast Index so at least proper podcast apps will be able to find it... :) https://podcastindex.org/podcast/4277889
Stupid question alert. This is Fountain. What do I tell an ordinary human being to do, to add sats into their wallet?
This ordinary person is in Norway, in this particular case. Where can I point them for a service that will take his funny Norwegian money, and put it somewhere that can be used to pay a lightning invoice? I actually can't think of how to do this simply - I don't know what service to use.
(And how could you scan this QR code on your phone?)
(I still reckon that the transcript tag is the trojan horse to getting more podcast hosts implementing Podcast Namespace tags).
WIRED magazine says we should do transcripts, but didn't go into where to put them. The new transcript tag would have been good for them to mention. https://www.wired.com/story/how-to-make-podcasts-better-for-people-with-hearing-loss/
Hmm. https://podnews.net/search?q=HR1&provider=pi - scroll down a little. That's a lot of bright-blue podcasts in the Podcast Index.
Interesting project - works with Lightning and essentially transfers SATs/BTC into fiat-based virtual credit cards. Might be of interest to those getting into value4value, since it works with any simple lightning wallet.
@davejackson - https://podnews.net/podcast/i9bcj shows that your "Leading the Bleeding" podcast is in the Afar language, spoken mainly in Ethopia and Djibouti. Impressive that you're fluent in that; and/or you might want to fix that in your Libsyn dashboard. (It also notices that you are now value4value enabled. Yay!)
That Twitter lightning network tipping thing has been confirmed by someone who works at Twitter, it seems. https://9to5mac.com/2021/09/01/twitter-will-soon-let-users-send-and-receive-bitcoin-in-its-tip-jar-platform/

I've been involved in podcasting since January 2005, when I wrote the first RSS feed for Virgin Radio, and we became the first station to be podcasting daily.
