“Podfather” gets Sirius

Nice piece in the NYT about Adam Curry’s deal with Sirius… He’ll be hosting a daily 4 hour show on channel 148, Talk Central. The show will have advertising (designed to fit in with the flow) and will be all about Podcasting as you might expect. Adam Curry’s Podshow starts on May 13…

No word on whether you’ll actually be able to download the show. If nothing else, Sirius subscribers can stream if for free online if you are out of reach from your satellite radio.

Great news for anyone trying to deal but not able to generate an enclosure based feed…

As the enthusiasm about Podcasting has grown in recent weeks, so has our enthusiasm for more generally managing RSS enclosures (we don’t get out much). In the past couple weeks, we have received numerous emails asking if we could begin to provide services that would enable Podcasting for folks that can’t currently cast, pod or otherwise. Problem solved. SmartCast%u2122 enables any feed publisher to create Podcasts, whether you generate Atom feeds or RSS 1.0 feeds. Maybe you’ve got an RSS 2.0 feed but no ability to create hooks into enclosure elements? No problem. [The Official FeedBurner Weblog]

Adam Curry’s Limit

Indeed unbelievable…

Unbelievable. After I upgraded our home cable connection a couple months ago, there apparently is still no way to obtain an unmetered broadband pipe. I’ve managed to exceed the 30 gig in 30 days limit my provider continues to impose. [Adam Curry]


I just learned that iPodderX support video enclosures as well, and you can play them within it’s media player… or your can do video here…

I whipped up a script this week based on Adam Curry’s iPodder for aggregating videoblogs from RSS 2.0 feeds with enclosure tags. It should download the videos (or any files, really), and organize them into a ViPodder directory on your desktop. It will then import the videos to playlists in Cellulo , much like iPodder does for iTunes. [unmediated]

We are a go for Podcasting…

I uploaded two recordings I’ve done so far… more will certainly follow!

atmaspheric | radio #1… recorded late last night

atmaspheric | radio #2… just wrapped. Much more clear headed.

WordPress does not officially support enclosures just yet, so we’ll see how long I can wait until hacking (read adding the hack already developed) the nightly build for WP 1.3. UPDATEI now have an RSS 2.0 feed purely for enclosures

I hope in future shows to patch in others and get much more focused on production quality.

Couple of links I mentioned… Palm’s announcement page for MS Exchange / Active Sync tech
and Treonauts.

Towards Podcasting…

I’ve been trying to install a virtual sound driver called Soundflower for quite a few days and running into an installation error each time I’ve tried to get it going. Tonight Google via Dowser (I love that app) led me to Pacifist… worked like a charm!

Pacifist 1.6.3 is a shareware application that opens Mac OS X .pkg package files and allows you to extract individual files and folders out of them. This is useful, for instance, if an application which is installed by the operating system becomes damaged and needs to be reinstalled without the hassle of reinstalling all of Mac OS X. Pacifist is also able to verify existing installations and find missing or altered files*, and also has the ability to optimize your system’s performance by updating prebinding information on your hard disk.
