Return to The Everything2 Podcast (idea)

The Everything2 Podcast was an expriment lasting 2 years that attempted to convert the vast and beautiful collection of outstanding poetry and prose into a different medium that ultimately failed due to the inertia of the userbase.

Below are the original introduction into the project and all podcasts to download and enjoy.


Taking nodes into a new medium...

Good day all,

today sees the release (or upload to its [server]) of the first Everything2 Podcast. Planned as a more or less loose collection of readings of good (and not so good) nodes, this is the first test version, and I already have a good idea what can be improved, but more about that later.

Why a [podcast], I hear [Dannye] yell? Isn't it enough that we can read all the drivel that's being produced on this site? Do we now have to listen to it?

Well, of course, you don't have to. Nevertheless it is interesting how a node transforms within a new medium, without [softlinks], [insulting softlinks], [pipelinks], [hardlinks] and the [catbox] next to it. Sometimes it can actually transcend its original meaning and become a different entity all together. On the downside, you'll have to live with the weird Germano-kiwi accent of the host (me). On the other hand, you can listen to some noder love in the car or at home, and if this thing works out, why not have interviews with noders or even (gasp) [gods] or (wheee) [Amnesiac]?.

A crucial part of the podcast will be your input: If you have a particular node that you love (be it by yourself or by somebody else), why not record it? I am happy to broadcast all of your contributions, as long as the recording quality is good enough and they match the criteria stated [How to contribute to the Everything2 podcast|here].

So far I am planning to release one podcast every other week on tuesday morning New Zealand time (as this is my day off). Hope that's convenient. All submissions should be in by then, otherwise they will be podcasted at a later date.

It could be the missing link that we've been, er, missing and could increase the, uh, jellyness of the [nodegel]. So, download them now and enjoy. RSS feeds are up again soon.
