However, Google Podcasts Manager takes about 7 days to do anything. One of the perils of needing to integrate in Google Search, I suspect. It's a pretty awful tool, and it's a bit annoying.
I have had support emails back from them though - surprisingly!
@martin @Castopod @benjaminbellamy "If someone listens to Podnews on Podfriend. Then what's the natural split?" - I'd like to suggest that this is moved to Github for a proper discussion here. https://github.com/Podcastindex-org/podcast-namespace/issues/134
@Ian @LDMartin1959 I've raised this as an issue - https://github.com/Podcastindex-org/podcast-namespace/issues/133
But - "locality" is intended to be a humanly-readable location *only*. Valid values are: "Houses of Parliament" or "North Michigan", or "Chicago".
You get a point from lat/lon, and ideally a programmatic place or area name from the OSM ID.
@martin it's sold out until mid 2021, so "not enough" seems one good answer.
(Or "Podnews has a good salesperson" is another one!)
It's over $2,000/month.
@brianoflondon https://podnews.net/article/pubsubhubbub-for-podcasters is good (but I'm biased)
@Castopod My apologies if that meant more work. I believe you're the only person who has those in production (other than me).
@martin It changes every month. The sponsor is credited at the top of every edition (of the newsletter). They get a name credit in the email 'from' line. I'm not planning to make that a full sponsor credit!
New sponsor from Dec 1.
@Castopod I put the tag onto Podnews, and so far have earnt $0.18 which is quite good. Kangaroo dollars, but still.
@martin This is a new change with Apple Mail, and I think it's a bug. But I'll remove the brackets today and see what happens.
Switched the RSS useragent repo to use "domain-like identifiers", similar to Podcast Index, and also suggesting the ?_from data.
@dave Sure! Next Monday, it'll be in.
@csb OK. I've got pribably about half of them. :)
That list appears to think that Podnews or Buzzsprout are apps: I wonder if it's worth splitting. (Podnews supports some things as a podcast host; but will support others in our podcast pages).

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.
