I have worked out how to publish the pages and feed with the relevant markup that it will work with podcatchers. That's simple enough. The problem is that the feed wants the direct url to the .mp3 file so it can be streamed in the catcher. I don't want to stream the episodes just allow downloads. This seems impossible to do on the catcher side from what I can see. I'm looking to see if I can block the streaming some how on my hosting but allow the download.
But for We Don't Stream I'm using Liferea, and place the downloads amongst other audio and video files I want to enjoy again later.
I'm not sure if We Don't Stream can work in normal podcatchers whilst encouraging people to consider the cost of downloading...
@jamesmullarkey Really enjoyed the content!
My one (OK, two) criticisms is don't over edit.
The start of episode two felt incredibly choppy - it felt like you were trying to be too perfect and cut some "urms" or something and was a bit jarring, killing the flow.
The very start of the interview was a little bit of the same but you sounded like you eased in to it.
The second... please don't sing again, it was almost as bad as my attempts 😆.
@jamesmullarkey Keep in mind that this is coming from someone who consumes a crap load of content during long rides and runs - I'm too scared to create anything myself!
Seriously, awesome work. I'm really looking forward to more.
Thanks so much. Yes you're right I chopped some of the audio too close together. Bit of a learning curve. I think it will get better on that front. Talking to a mic in an empty room is super hard but I hoping that will get easier too.
I make no promises on the singing. :)
I recorded an interview for episode 3 yesterday so more coming.
