- Greetings all. I've been lurking on this list for about two months
now but as discussion seems to be primarily technical, I haven't had
much to add. (If people are interested in less technical discussion I
have several questions that I have asked at various forums but still
do not feel that I have a satisfactory answer to. But they relate to
content and marketing, not software and legal issues. Although I
admit I was a coypright lawyer prior to my disability but don't
exactly want to spend my free time giving out free legal advice.)
I have a podcast about chronic health problems and I am starting a
podcast about daily life with disability. I am also a voracious
listener of health-related podcasts (and history, but there are fewer
Of course, part of the irony of chronic health podcasting is that
there are often days when my health interferes with my podcasting.
But since it is never out of my mind, I am thinking that I would like
to compile and maintain a list of health, medicine, fitness and other
such podcasts so that other people could find them easily instead of
having to trawl through dozens of directories. I could just throw it
up on my own website (and probably will) but that's not really going
to get exposure. I'm not doing this for glory but I would prefer
that people actually be able to benefit from my work.
(I'd also consider doing a list of history and genealogy podcasts, as
that is my obsession.)
I know that i/indiepodder.org techically is set up so that
individuals can take up the maintenance of an individual topic via
opml. However I'm not a big fan of i/indiepodder and their format is
fairly limited -- only the name and blog/website URL for each cast.
I'd like to be able to give (either written by me or submitted by
casters) a 25 word tag line so that people have a little more info of
what each cast is about.
So my question is: Are there any directories out there who would like
to have someone compile one or two genre-specific lists of casts?
Most places rely on caster submission, which I respect, but therefore
don't want my sort of list. I'd even be happy to share my list with
multiple directories. I just ask for credit and the right to post
the lists on my personal web pages.
If you run such a directory, or know of one that is reputable, please
let me know. Offlist is fine if anyone is working on a project and
doesn't want to announce it yet. (Or any other reason you prefer to
contact me offlist :0 )
Thanks in advance,
