Episode 68: Podcast Saga Part 21 - Opportunities

Audible has let a few of its originals seep onto podcast players after they had been out for a while. And in doing so, they unintentionally showed the difference between audiobooks and podcasts. And gave us a few more things to think about.

Episode 67: Podcast Saga Part 20 - Unexpected Focus

Investigations aren't just fact recitations. Or they don't have to be. We could turn them into more obvious journeys with an unexpected figure that we develop a surprise closeness to.

Trigger warning: discussion of bad relationships with food from 12:15 to 14:00 (times presented with padding)

Some people want to gatekeep a space without a gatekeeper, demanding originality or forbidding podcasts about other things. But that's dumb. And M wants to talk about why.

Episode 63: Podcast Saga Part 16 - The Science of Chaos

You know, sometimes science fiction can seem a little too... polished? I mean, I was never good with it. I don't think too many people would be. It would be a hot mess from time to time.

Hey, there's a podcast for that!

Episode 56: Podcast Saga Part 9 - Great "Found" Podcasts

There's a whole lot you can do with podcasting. Or with audio in general. So how about we discuss some shows that try to tell out a story out of supposedly random or found tapes.

Could you have found footage in podcasting? Obviously. And some examples of the genre are better than others.

You can look at it this: this episode is unsolicited financial advice for a $100 million dollar start up.
OR it's free consulting.

Because M thinks Luminary could be leaving money on the table by focusing on the wrong starting point

Episode 53: Podcast Saga Part 6 - Missteps on the Road to...

Luminary had a troubled launch, but I think a part of it is that no one fully knows what's going on. And no, I'm not just talking about the lack of communication between Luminary and the podcast world.

Luminary unintentionally stepped on landmines of podcasting norms that need to be fleshed out. Maybe the concept can be salvaged. Maybe not, but until we understand what went wrong and what went right, I don't think we can make the judgment call.

Episode 48: Podcast Saga Part 1 - Are They Just Radio 2.0?

Today, we're going to start something "epic" (hard quotes). M wants to begin to dissect what made audio fiction podcasting in the first place, what gives it its appeal, and what makes it the cultural force that it is.

And we're going to start by clarifying if these shows are all just radio dramas reborn.
