Thought I’d do a little forward-thinking test using the podPress plug-in on our WordPress blog. I figured there is no good reason that we should hold on to our audio comments that come in via Waxmail or through our comment line for the podcast. Why not post them as they come in?
So here’s one from Joe Thornley received following IPR 11:
The question then becomes do we still include them as part of the show for our listener community, or do we just point people to the blog to hear the comments they feel like listening to?
I’m trying to force myself to think about podcasts differently from weekly radio programs. Is it a show? Is it a program? Are Terry and I co-hosts with listeners, or are we co-facilitators to a community (a fantastic Holzism)? Does the date matter? Should we even discuss time-bound news given that the podcast lives forever and the story has already been told in real time in the blogosphere?
What do you, the listeners, er…, community think?
