Found this one interesting as i was approving podcasts (mainly because I was thinking about watching it) and thought I would share with you. TBS has started a podcast featuring Paulie Shore promoting his new show. Not sure how long it will run, but check it out now…just for fun.
What they say–
“Download this exclusive podcast and listen as Pauly Shore talks about his life, his loves and, oh yeah, his new show. Interviewing Pauly is Marlon, the El Salvadorian sidekick from Pauly’s new original comedy Minding the Store, airing Sundays at 10/9c on TBS.”
While reading through some blogs today, i found an interesting link to a new application called “Galleon”. Im not sure I fully understand the capablities or specs, but I do know that I can have a home media center that will download and play podcasts through my TV. Sweet! Here is their claim to fame:
“Galleon is a free open source media server for TiVo¨ which allows you to enjoy many kinds of content and interactive applications right on your TV. The server runs on your home computer and organizes your media collection so that they can be viewed on your home network. Galleon also brings Internet content and applications to your TV. Winner of the “Most Creative Application” in the TiVo Developer Challenge.”

In an agreement that capitalizes on the huge potential of independent music podcasting, Odeo and the Association of Music Podcasting have joined forces. The organizations will work together to showcase the best in legal, independently produced music in an open, device-agnostic platform. As part of the agreement, Odeo and AMP will engage in cross-promotional activities, collaborate on ways to better serve their users, and increase the amount of rights-free music available for podcasting.
Odeo is based in San Francisco, California. Founded in December, 2004 by Noah Glass and Evan Williams, OdeoÕs goal is to provide people and organizations with powerful tools for the creation and distribution of media. Odeo (beta) is now open at http://odeo.com. Discovery and subscription tools are currently available. Additional services will be released soon.
About the Association of Music Podcasting
AMP was formed in January 2005 to unite podcasters who play legally available independent music. AMP DJs are music lovers who have access to great, mostly independent music that you probably haven’t heard of (yet). AMP provides a fresh alternative, and itÕs all legal and safe to download. Each AMP member has his or her own unique podcast.
So I was approving podcasts today (like most days) and I found a cool new podcast/service. With it, you can put your zip code on the end of the URL and it will send you you local weather info (temp, humidity, etc) in podcast format.
Check it our for yourself Here.
Or take this link www.pirateweather.com/weather/podcast/XXXXX and replace the XXXXX with your zipcode.
The recent release of iTunes 4.9 has caused a lot of podcasts servers to overload. iPodder Lemon fortunately was designed for just this problem.
A symptom of this problem are errors in the log such as “timeout”, “can’t grab”, “DNS lookup failure” and lots of failed downloads.
Steps to survival are simple:
1) Leave iPodder running as much as possible (24/7 is great).
2) Enable the scheduler in iPodder and set it for every two hours.
iPodder -> Tools -> Scheduler
Select “Check at regular intervals” repeat every “2 hours”.
3) Use BitTorrent feeds if available for the podcast.
4) Don’t get impatient. You may see a lot of 0% 0KB entries in your download log. They are just records of unsuccessful attempts to get connected to the podcasts server. e.g. It took 7 tries, 2 hours apart, before iPodder finally managed to download the Daily Source Code for Jun 28, 2005. Several other shows had similar problems.
