@fediversecast As someone who nowadays listens more podcasts than music, I wondered... What about Funkwhale for podcasts? What about FediverseCast available in Funkwhale?

(Currently I listen to podcasts exclusively from my mobile phone using AntennaPod, so I guess my question is actually whether it is possible and easy to subscribe to podcasts hosted in Funkwhale instances using RSS? Never tried.)

@fediversecast Thank you for this new podcast and its first episode.

I'm conflicted between the fact that the show was interesting including most of its rambling vs the investment it requires to listen a +1h podcast. Would being shorter and more to the point help increasing audience? Maybe splitting interviews into different episodes when it's worth it? For instance, Funkwhale + digital rights || funding + future of Fediverse.

The B in Benoit B Mandelbrot stands for Benoit B Mandelbrot.

Oh, thank you. You made my morning.

A powerful song about women and history. It has an encyclopedic twist and I want to think that they benefited from the work being done by Wikimedia activists tackling the gender gap:

@bastianilso @gnome As someone who many many years ago tried to help promoting GNOME releases... this video is just impressive. Congratulations to everyone involved! Also, I knew Karen had a very nice voice, and in this video she sounds totally professional.
