@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.
@audrey Hi, do you know https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Hackathons/Handbook ? Can be extrapolated to non-Hackathons as well.
Announcing the first episode of a new podcast about the fediverse - FediverseCast! The show will feature conversations with cool fediverse makers and community members, hosted by @kevinflo
@feijoa I thought this was a good joke of yours. Turns out it was a good joke of Benoit B Mandelbrot himself: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benoit_Mandelbrot#cite_note-Mandelbrot's_name-4
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:
