It’s going to be a constant battle to keep podcasting open. But we’re kicking serious ass in that battle so far, and we’re not letting up. Our chances are much better this time, in part from different conditions, and in part because we saw what happened to news and blogs.

Same with me, websites, and RSS, but I guess I’m old-fashioned

My understanding is it crawls iTunes. Any chance Overcast, Pocketcasts, Castro, etc. can run a public directory?

Agreed. The “cast” part is from broadcast. If it’s not a public feed it’s like cable. Podcable. Podable. Pable.

I think the proliferation of Podcast was made by the fact on how easy they are to find and listen. Having the user jump through hoops just to listen to them would definitely kill this platform.

I love that you are vocal about this. Thank you. (No skin in the game for me. I only occasionally guest and run no podcast.)

The question that’s always bothered me is: how do we turn Twitter into an open platform/protocol? Particularly one that people actually use?

Would there be a market force that could turn ATP for example into a closed model? Aren’t you independent by definition?

If iTunes (and maybe Google Play) started forcing podcasters to upload directly there instead of providing a feed URL, that’d take a huge chunk of any podcast’s audience

If it doesn't have a public feed, is it really a podcast?

Doesn’t google play re-host the files?

I literally read Spotify’s plan to centralise podcast under their service right after this tweet. We’re kicking serious arse yes, but the fight goes on I suppose.

Why? Is there a patent on creating an MP3 and syndicating it yourself?

What does ‘closed podcast’ environment actually entail? Is it a matter of tools and standards that any podcast should be discoverable through normal search and playable on podcast player?

I really hope so , because I’m starting to see some podcasts having a “bonus content” with their paid app….
